Bombali Youths endorse Dr. Kaifala Marah
It can be recalled on Saturday, 14th January 2017, hundreds of youth in Koinadugu District took the township of the district’s headquarter town to show their unflinching and unwavering support for Dr. Kaifala Marah as the sole candidate for the leadership and flag bearer of the All People’s Congress (APC) party come the next Presidential Election in 2018.
They came from all over the district to show their love and solidarity with their own. The strong show of support from mainly the Youth of Koinadugu District who are of all the five tribes in the district: Mandingo, Fullah, Yalunka, Limba and Kuranko, goes a long way to tell the entire Sierra Leone and indeed the world that Koinaduguans are united and have only one focus and one purpose and that is to have Dr. Kaifala Marah as the Standard Bearer of the APC in the 2018 Presidential election and subsequently President of the Republic of Sierra Leone.
This was replicated in Bombali District when thousands of youth across the District early in morning of Sunday 5th February 2017, stormed the district and provincial headquarter city of Makeni calling on their APC Party members and the hierarchy to anoint Dr. Kaifala Marah as the flagbearer of the APC party and so come the next Presidential Election, he clinched the Presidency.
In what was seen as “an unprecedented move by youth in Bombali” Makeni City was overflowed with young men and women in what they dubbed as “Jogging For A Renewed Hope” while chanting and jogging to demonstrate their support, trust and confidence in Dr. Kaifala Marah as having the wherewithal to lead the party and the country.
Makeni was awoken to the call of the youth as early as 5:00am on Sunday as they mounted loudspeakers on trucks and held megaphones riding on motorbikes calling on their peers to come out in support of their consented call on their party, the APC to have someone in the person of Dr. Kaifala Marah who they see as the true representative of their renewed hope and aspirations.
They youths say they see in Dr. Marah positive traits of innovation, commitment and the high spirits of patriotism and nationalism.
“By the high standards already set by President Ernest Bai Koroma, we have seen the determination and renewed spirit in Dr. Marah that will add value to what have already been done by President Koroma and the APC party. We want someone that has the appeal to our collective aspirations as party members and as citizens of our beloved Mama Salone,” a youth leader stated Sunday.
It could be recalled that two weeks ago, youth in Koinadudugu District made a similar move and called on the APC and the party hierarchy to consider Dr. Kaifala Marah as flagbearer of the party come the next Presidential Election.
According to media handlers of Marah, the moves are in spontaneity which “clearly demonstrating the love, trust and confidence youths of Sierra Leone have in Dr. Kaifala Marah, first Chief of Staff at State House, former longest serving Minister of Finance and Economic Development under the current administration and now Governor of the Bank of Sierra Leone”.
Sources say more rallies to draw attention to popularity of Kaifala Marah, are being planned all across Sierra Leone.
