Alimu Sanu Barrie, CEO for Pavi Fort, a local construction company doing the Koinadugu roads, Kabala township, donated 500 bags of rice, Le25 million and three excavators to relief effort going on in the affected areas. This donation was made at State House and the excavators at the site. “I made the donation at State House and asked how things are going, I will give more support, as I was moved at such devastation and human tragedy. When you see this kind of thing you just have to help in whatever way you can because it is so sad”. He went on to give his advice to the victims; “My advice is we have to work a lot and advise them not to go there again. This is caused by God and it is a natural disaster it can happen at any time and anywhere even in the middle of town and many lives will be destroyed”. (Photo: Alimu Sanu Barrie on the left)
Answering questions posed by this reporter about the status of the road contract given to them in that District, the CEO said “We have a very big contract there and we have gone far, the township is 80% completed and the people appreciate the project. However he promised to throw more light on the issue in subsequent interactions after the mourning period.
EXCERPTS FROM THE CEO PAVI FORT
On behalf of my humble self as the CEO of Pavi Fort construction company that is presently doing the roads within koinadugu District I’m saddened and therefore expressing my profound condolences to His Excellency President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma and the government and the entire people of our beloved country for the great loss of our brothers and sisters as a result of the disastrous mudslide tradegy that occurred on Monday morning 14th August 2017.
As a company we are very much aware and recognise the concerted efforts of government and its development partners in addressing this menace.
In this moment of great sorrow to our nation, Pavi Fort like many others who are deeply saddened by this national disaster have released and deployed three excavators at the tragic site and also donated the sum of Le 25 million plus 500 bags of rice.
In light of this, my company wishes to join voice with His Excellency the President to discourage citizens from residing at disaster prone areas.
Also, my company is calling on fellow citizens to observe the precautionary measures due to this recurrent downpour of rains.
Once again May the souls of our compatriots rest in blissful eternity.
