Sierra Leone: No Run-Off for Koroma - Constituency 106 Politicians Aver

Politicians in one of the largest constituencies in the country, Constituency 106, have told the public that there will be no run-off in the election as President Ernest Bai Koroma, whom they described as father of the nation, has already won the contest.

Ibrahim Kamara told Concord Times that they are not voting for a party but for someone who will bring development to the country, adding that during Koroma's five years in office, he has made several changes in the country and empowered youths because they are the future of tomorrow.

Kamara maintained that when he graduated from college with a degree, there was no employment for him but he has been employed now.

"No run-off for President Koroma for the good work he has done for the country and the people of Sierra Leone. He is a true father of the nation," he said and pointed out that Koroma has fulfilled most of the promises he made in 2007 before he assumed power.

Constituency 106 Chairman, Abdulai Turay, also told Concord Times that they have educated the youth, women and old people on how to vote in their '4-for-4' voting formula during the polling day.

"We will win the election in the first ballot because President Koroma will do more in the country," he assured.

Turay maintained that the APC party is not tribalistic in politics which makes everyone that belongs to the party have the right to say whatever is affecting them in their various communities.
