Innovation and the Agenda for Prosperity
This country is endowed with talented Sierra Leoneans who have the possibility of showcasing Sierra Leone to the outside world but it is a pity to learn that their request has time and again fallen on deaf ears.
Those who have manifested interest to embark on modernization were seemingly demoralized. We can’t realize the Agenda for Prosperity if those at the helm of affairs continue to drag their feet on issues relating to national development. Sierra Leone can become an Industrial nation if this group of Sierra Leoneans are integrated into modern technology.
The Proprietor and Managing Director of Finic is a constituent of this group of innovators in the country. His numerous contributions in the Agriculture sector cannot be overemphasized and even during the Ebola outbreak he was awarded for his marvelous job. This resulted to this gentleman contracted by the Ministry of Health and partners for the manufacturing of modern medical equipments including beds and other medical gears to be used in hospitals all in an effort to curtail the overpriced import expenditure on government.
Funds budgeted for the importation of foreign medical equipment could be utilized for other vital development purposes when this group of citizens are incorporated as partners in nation building.
A similar fame innovator was also discovered in the east end of Freetown. He constructed a replica of a Helicopter on his own intelligence but lacks the support to continue. He was a colleague of the Proprietor of Finic and has worked with him for many years. With resourcefulness this Innovators can help turn around this nation and actualize the Agenda for Prosperity.
A man who claimed to have roughly completed a Helicopter is still battling to raise funds to continue. He made so many appeals to government and well wishers but it appears as if his request was turn down.
Kelvin Doe a secondary school pupil gained recognition for his resourcefulness when he created a radio station, generator and other devices. Africell, the leading GSM operator in the country awarded him a cheque costing Le 10M. He was eventually flown to the USA were he also interacted with university students offering technology to improve his career.
The latest innovator, an SS3 pupil at the Benevolent Secondary school in Makeni, Northern Province of Sierra Leone was reported to have created lots of devices through technology that would help transform our weak internet communication system in the Country but lacks the necessary equipment to advance his knowledge.
It is a fact that several others are faced with similar challenges to forge ahead. This is what the Sierra Leone society looks like that the culture of resourcefulness will not be given the appropriate attention it deserves.
This shows why government should create the enabling environment for this sector to engage in Industrial creativity to move the country forward. This fact should no longer be disputed that Sierra Leone can one day become an exporter of modernize supplies if only we embrace this noble inspiration.
