As he declared his candidature for the main opposition Sierra Leone People's Party to become the next member of parliament for Constituency 110 in the western part of Freetown on Saturday, Imuran Mohamed Sillah said he has support from people within the grassroots level of his constituency and is ready to work to ensure that he does not disappoint his people when they would have vested power in him.
In his declaration statement at the event held at the Tengbeh Town playing field commonly called Mammy Baindu field, Sillah said he knows the problems of the constituency and will endeavour to solve most of them if voted into office come November 17.
"I will not let you down my people. My office will be open to everybody who wants development for the constituency because I believe that together we can develop our constituency and the country as a whole if we put the right person in the right place and at the right time," he said.
Sillah said the Tengbeh Town community has been abandoned by selfish politicians, noting that the community needs a hospital, a better market for day to day business transaction and a community centre.
"I believe in development not in selfishness. We need to make the country for the future generation. I believe if all the politicians in this country put aside selfishness and turn to develop the country, we can achieve a better Sierra Leone," he said.
