Usman Boie parties with Grassfield community
Over the weekend, scores of youths in the Grassfield community east of Freetown marshalled themselves to actualize their dream of constructing a 2 kilometer feeder road linking the main Freetown/Waterloo Highway to the north axis of the community via the Wesleyan Church.
As they perspired profusely to complete the first phase of the project, one of SLPP’s aspirants for the approaching flagbearship, Alhaji Usman Boie Kamara, instantaneously surfaced out of the blue to donate fifty bags of cement as a symbol of commitment to issues of national development.
The youth co-ordinator, who also doubled as the road project manager, Abdulai Kamara, extoled the benevolence of Usman Boie and stated his gesture is worth emulating.
He revealed that the idea of the project was borne out of the dire desire to foster community development initiatives.
Abdulai furthered that his organization is apolitical and have been approaching organizations and individuals to cause them lend helping hands to their initiative.
He said that there are other feeder roads in the community that require a facelift; but the one that is currently being rehabilitated is the most dangerous, especially during the rains.
To avoid inconvenience, he said, the organization has decided to start with this road and will continue with the others in due course.
He praised Alhaji Sow who has done tremendously well to see the actualization of the project and called on developmentally oriented and patriotic citizens emulate example of Alhaji Sow.
The project contractor, Amara Samura, lauded efforts of donors, but bemoaned the cooperation of the workforce, which according to him, must be enhanced for speedy conclusion of the work.
The contractor could not estimate the total cost of the project, but highlighted a total of 350 bags of cement were needed for the completion of the road construction.
He implored for more support from community elders and encouraged youths of the other communities to emulate such a move instead of waiting on government to give them the desired push.
Team leader, Mr. Mohamed Kargbo, complained that there had been a problem of flooding in that part of Grassfield which he said was as a result of a poorly constructed culvert in the neighbouring Low Cost Housing community.
He assured all that with proper construction of drainages, the perennial problem would soon be averted.
