30,000 Sierra Leonean Jobs On Line if Bio Signs Amended Finance Acts
At this crucial economic crisis in the country, especially during this challenging season, about 30,000 sorghum farmers are on the verge of losing their sources of livelihood with their huge family members if this devastating Bill is signed by the President, His Excellency Dr. Julius Maada Bio (in photo). The general consensus to the SLPP government is to protect the infant industries that are liable to increase our GDP rate faster and maintains a favorable balance of trade. The would be affected farmers’ families are looking forward to really depict whether this government is seeking the welfare of its citizenry/subjects or seeking its self-centered financial gains.
The popular concern among the deprived populace is due to the fact that the SLPP led government when in opposition proudly promised the people of this country, laying special premium on the youths of creating more job opportunities for thousands of young people across the country. They exclaimed that, acting contrary to that solemn promise is tantamount to orchestrated failure and a betrayal to the electorates. Relinquishing over 30,000 sorghum farmers is like exposing the lives of more than half a million of our future leaders to abject poverty and suffering. Such a one-sided bill if assented by President Bio has the tendency to adversely increase the rate of Rural- Urban migration, thereby fostering congestion in the city simply because most of them will be moving to urban areas especially the capital city- Freetown. It also possesses the propensity to increase the crime rate and that of prostitution. By and large, parents or guardians doing sorghum farming will lose their dignities for failing to meet their moral obligations.
In a nut shell those instrumental and dedicated sorghum farmers, local producers and local industries are kindly capturing the attention of Mr. President not to assent this bill IF AND ONLY IF he means well for the people of this country.
