Citizens Want Lungi Bridge But…
In a Vox-Pop carried by this medium immediately after the launching of the most trumpeted $2.1 billion Lungi Bridge. Many citizens expressed joy and happiness that the idea of constructing the bridge is good but the question was that, who will be the first person to cross the bridge after completion which is expected to wrap up within six years period.
Many people said that the bridge would be constructed in a deep water area, adding that, they would be confidence and happy if the first Gentle man of the Republic of Sierra Leone, President Julius Maada Bio, his cabinet ministers and Members of Parliament be the first groups of people to cross the most expensive bridged in Africa and one of the most expensive in the world.
As a nation, citizens said, they have been hearing news about bridges been collapsed in other countries as a result of sub-standard way of constructing infrastructural facilities. So, now that the Government of Sierra Leone has decided to construct an international bridge from Freetown to Lungi, we are praying as a country for the most knowledgeable expertise in engineering and construction services.
Some Sierra Leoneans are still not believe that the Lungi Bridge will be standardly constructed but others accepted the fact that with the zeal President Bio has developed to make and maintain his good name by ensuring that the much talked about Lungi Bridge project becomes a reality.
Although supporters of the Paopa faction in the country are busy singing and dancing as soon as President Bio pronounced his intention to construct the Lungi Bridge, irate paopas who are in support of the current regime believe that, President Bio is going to start and complete the construction project of the Lungi Bridge while others are with the view that all the SLPP led government is doing is a way of gaining cheap popularity among Freetonians where the main opposition, APC party command majority.
In that regard, Sierra Leoneans are calling on President Julius Maada Bio to shame his critics by making sure that the envious bridge is built and prominent people firstly volunteer to cross it followed by the commoners to discover how guarantee the bridge may be.
