His Excellency Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma has said he needs to give proper closure to the programmes as contained in the "Agenda for Change" as he prepares for the implementation of the "Agenda for Change" after the November 17th elections.

He made this statement on the occasion of the commissioning of the Airport Transfer Project at the Government Wharf.

President Koroma noted that the transition from Lungi to Freetown has not been anything to write home about in the past as the experience of people coming into and leaving Sierra Leone have been very much daunting.

"We are providing the enabling environment for the private sector to actively participate in the re-branding of the county," he said and went on to mention the tripartite conference that earmarked the construction of a new airport as well as making Lungi a new city, which he confidently maintained "will be looked at in the first half of my second term".

He profusely thanked the Ministry of Transport and Aviation and the Investment Climate Facility (ICF) for their invaluable input in making the project a success.
