Kaffu Bullom chief extols Pres. Koroma’s development strives

By Mohamed Massaquoi

Paramount Chief of Kaffu Bullom Chiefdom in the Port Loko District has commended President Ernest Bai Koroma for what he described as “an upsurge in infrastructural development” in his chiefdom.

PC Bai Shebora Sheba Gbereh III noted that for decades, Lungi – which is the headquarter town of Kaffu Bullom Chiefdom – had lagged behind due to the absence of basic amenities like water, electricity, healthcare and good road network, among others.

The traditional ruler told Concord Times in an exclusive interview at his Lungi residence that for years his people had been struggling despite the area hosting the only international airport in the country.

“There is massive infrastructural development now taking place in my chiefdom and the president should be commended for the good job,” the paramount chief said. “It is good to commend government when good things are being done. We used to spend more than five hours [driving] from Lungi to Port Loko but the Airport Perimeter Road, Kingsway and up to Lungi Garrison have now been paved. This is the first time we have got government electricity facility in this part of the country.

“I am saying all of this as a traditional leader who has always yearned for development for my people not to promote the political agenda of anybody or group. This latest infrastructural development has encouraged entrepreneurs to come and do business here.

PC Gbereh III stated that few days ago they were in Port Loko and Kambia districts where the president commissioned road projects for the two districts.

He pointed out that Mr. Koroma is opening up the country through infrastructural development and that succeeding governments should strive to build on the good foundation being laid by the current administration.

It could be recalled that in 2011 three brand new thermal generators with a capacity of 1.8 megawatts arrived at the Lungi International Airport for installation to boost electricity supply at the airport and its immediate environs.

The chief said he is pleased to see development in his chiefdom and that his people are extremely happy and hoped the momentum will continue.

“If past leaders had worked hard like President Koroma, our communities would have improved more than this,” he said.

Hassan Kamara, a businessman at Airport Junction, said business has improved generally in the area with customers patronizing with them on a daily basis due to the frequent electricity supply in the township.

Security, he added, has also been strengthened.

“We pray that government will do more especially in the areas of job creation for the youth, women’s empowerment and to improve the economy for the general growth of Sierra Leone,” he said.
