Councilor Emmanuel Saidu Conteh of Ward 383 this week proudly showcased his achievements after a year in office. At a well-attended meeting at the E.J. Robinson primary school at Congo Town, the councilor outlined activities he undertook during the year under review.
He started off by thanking those who attended his groundbreaking event, and veered into highlighting his successes, including the erection of four taps in the community which are up and running, while another is being constructed.
The councilor further revealed that he donated fifty (50) twin tables and chairs to the host school, which can accommodate 100 pupils, plus painting the school’s building and presenting more than two thousand black plastic bags for garbage collection which were distributed to every household in the ward.
Councilor Conteh said he mobilized youth to rehabilitate a key road in the community – Cemetery Road – which has been in a dilapidated state for over 25 years, and is at present under construction.
He further revealed that he awarded the project for the fencing of the local cemetery to community members, and called on corporate businesses to support the ward in its development strides.
Wusu Samura, secretary of the Ward Committee and Assistant Registrar at the Milton Margai College of Education and Technology, Goderich campus, gave the declaration of purpose.
Henry Fyfe, Education Officer at the Freetown City Council, who represented the Mayor of Freetown, Franklyn Bode-Gibson, thanked the enterprising councilor for being development-oriented.
Meanwhile, one Mr. Lilo of S.K. Enterprises, who donated school furniture to the school, said he was pleased to donate the furniture as part of his contribution to providing a conducive learning environment for children in the community, as well as to support the government’s ‘Agenda for Prosperity’.
