Hon. Alhassan Kamara made the commendation on behalf of his constituents in Parliament during the motion of “Thanks to His Excellency the President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma” for the address he so graciously delivered on the occasion of the State Opening of the Fourth Session of the Fourth Parliament of the Second Republic of Sierra Leone on Friday 11th December 2015 at the Chamber of Parliament.
The MP said his people had been deprived of basic facilities like good road network for far too long in the history of Sierra Leone, but said today they are very much proud and appreciative of the infrastructure development being implemented by the Government of Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma.
He said out of the 27kilometer road rehabilitation in the Municipality, his constituency has benefited from 14kilometers while Robis Road and Jabbie Street have already been paved for which they are very much happy.
Hon Alhassan Kamara added that the streets in Calaba Town, Allen Town, Mayenkeni and Pam-Ronkoh are awaiting rehabilitation.
The MP also commended the President for empowering the youths across the country, adding that Government’s development priority is highly commendable.
He however expressed his disappointment with the manner in which the youths are abusing alcoholic which he said is being manufactured by Indians, adding that alcohol is damaging the future of the youth in the country.
Other speakers also showered praises on the President for the significant development strides in the country, including Deputy Minority Leader of the main opposition Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP), Hon. Alhaji Ansu Jaiah Kaikai of Constituency 087 in Pujehun District, who also commended the President for roads infrastructure and the roles played by the three arms of Government in the fight against the Ebola epidemic.
Hon. Alhaji Kaikai however urged the need to provide more resources for Parliament as Members of Parliament have the responsibility of performing their oversight functions as well as monitoring the activities of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDA’s).
