Alhaji Seray Dumbuya said the Finance Minister informed Parliament about the need to reinvent the wheel that would propel the country’s economy to its former status as one of the fastest growing in the world in spite of the challenges that can only be overcome with resilience, hard work and faith in God.
He further stated that Government’s efforts to advance the country should not go in vein as Government is transparent and accountable, evidenced by the recent Auditor General’s Report to Parliament on the Ebola funds.
