Councilor of Ward 366 in the Black Hall Road community, east of Freetown, Amadu Kargbo, popularly known as Councilor 40, has on Saturday, 22nd July, 2017, donated school materials and prizes to pupils at the Sierra Muslim Brotherhood (SLMB) Secondary School.

Councilor 40 said the donated items including geometry sets, cartoons of A4 size papers, pens, and rulers, cost over five million Leones (Le5m) and  would inspire pupils to do more in their educational pursuit.

“This donation will motivate pupils preparing to write the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE), those in senior secondary schools as well as final year students in tertiary institutions,” he said.

 “I want all beneficiaries to put premium on education because it is key to success and learning is better than silver and gold.”

The ward 366 Councilor said he has been extending similar goodies to deserving pupils and students for three years now, boasting that it has become a norm and obligation to him.

Since the inception of this donation, he said, girls have been winning the star prizes for best performing pupils in the BECE, describing it as a laudable step towards the enhancement of girl child education in his ward.

“All the beneficiaries should work very hard because hard work pays. With education, we can eradicate poverty in our country,” he urged.

He commended Hon. Roseline J. Smith of Constituency 103, who has been very supportive to the development of his ward.

Chairman of the donation ceremony, Ishmael Conteh, said the councilor has been doing great things, while calling on other stakeholders in the ward to emulate Council 40’s work so that pupils will have the opportunity to be educated.

Coordinator of SLMB Junior Secondary School, Ibrahim S. Sesay, said he was very impressed with Councilor 40’s tremendous work for students in his ward.
