NEC headquarters transformed
The NEC headquarters at Tower Hill, Freetown has been transformed. The new ultra-modern building now accommodates both the electoral commission and the Human Rights Commission Sierra Leone.
The building was erected by the Overseas Trading Construction Company’s architectural and engineering services in partnership with the International Construction Services and the quality surveyors were J.T. Roy Macauley and Associates.
A monument at the new site depicts Pa Demba, a Sierra Leonean who helped protect the returned slaves against the French Invasion in Freetown, and also Mammy Yenoh.
It could be recalled that the turning of the sod for the construction of the NEC headquarter was done by former president Alhaji Dr. Ahmed Tejan Kabbah on 11th May 2001.
The entire project is said to be largely funded by the Government of Sierra Leone and development partners.
It has a capacity of one hundred and thirty-nine rooms with adequate facilities ranging from fire protection, fully electrified with regular water supply system.
