SAMURA KAMARA EXPOSES APC’s FAILURE… “I Blamed The Government For Such Failure”


    “I Blamed The Government For Such Failure”
    Like President Joseph Saidu Momoh of blessed memory who ruled Sierra Leone from 1985 to 1992, the Presidential candidate of the ruling All Peoples Congress Party(APC), Samura Kamara has blamed his Government and Political Party in particular for the current leadership failures on Education, Health, Water and Housing.
    Samura Kamara was responding to a question posed by BBC’s Focus on Africa Editor-Hassan Arouni-the moderator of the groundbreaking Presidential Debate held yesterday-Friday 15th January 2018 at the Bintumani International Conference Centre in Aberdeen, Freetown. He was shedding light on his recent trip to Yargoh and Sherbro Island, Southern Sierra Leone.
    According to him, housing is a challenge which is why the APC included it in their manifesto, to attach utmost seriousness to it. He asserted that “promises and intentions without substance are nothing to talk about. He added that “we need to do more on education, housing, energy, water and health.” Since these development trajectory have not been achieved, Samura sincerely blamed his Government for such failure.
    Samura said under the ruling APC teachers are better renumerated. He further noted that there are still challenges but if voted in as the next President of Sierra Leone, he would undertake more sustainable development. He blamed the Government for the suffering of the people.
    SLPP’s Presidentialcandidate, Rtd. Maada Bio damned the APC Government for reckless spending, adding that the same road the SLPP evaluated at the sum of $10,000,000.00 and secured funds for is the same road that has been inflated at$ 1000,000.00.
    Bio says the ruling APC Government have been spending like drunken sailors.
    NGC’s Presidential candidate-Kandeh Kolleh Yumkella said the greatest legacies of the APC is ‘rankanomics’ – poor economics.”
    Former APC Minister of Social Welfare, Gender and Children’s Affairs-Dr Sylvia Blyden submitted after the debate that a very good retirement package will do samura Kamara so much good than to become head of state.
    Many say yesterday’s debate will hardly change the voting dynamics as the country’s voting populace is not fully enlightened. Others say it will encourage swing voters to join a decisive leader who articulated his policies in line with national democratic good governance.
    Six Presidential candidates debated their vision and aspirations: sacked Vice President-Alhaji Sam Sumana who is now the Presidential candidate for the Coalition for Change party; Alliance Democratic Party’s Presidential candidate-Mohamed Kamarainba Mansaray; Citizens Democratic Party’s Presidential Candidate-Alhaji Musa Tarawally; ruling APC party’s Presidential candidate-Samura Kamara; National Grand Coalition party’s Presidential candidate-Alhaji Kandeh Kolleh Yumkellah and the Sierra Leonean Peoples Party’s Presidential candidate-retired Julius Maada Bio.
    The Presidential Debate was organised by AYV Media Empire in partnership with the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists, PPRC, SLBC and Star Television.
