Hon. Chernor Bah Calls For A New Airport
Leader of the main opposition All Peoples Congress (APC) party in the House of Parliament, Hon. Chernor Ramadan Maju Bah has called on the government of President Julius Maada Bio to see the need of constructing a new airport in a different location apart from LungiS where the value is need.
Hon. Chericoco, as he is fondly called, made the clarion call on the debate for the expansion of the Lungi Airport Terminal project that was launched by President Bio last month. He said he is not opposing the idea of Lungi Airport expansion but there an urgent need for a new airport with a better access that will attract new airlines, passengers to name but few. He said countries like Ghana and Senegal in West African took loan to construct new airports with better locations.
Hon. Bah continued that there is nothing bad for the past government to propose a new airport at Mamamah and the President Bio led government came and construct it, be it in Mamamah or elsewhere. He said the government can move the new airport to a better location so that we can have money’s worth. He added that even if this government decided to construct the new airport in Bo, it will be welcome by him and he will say bravo to President Bio. He ended by saying that Sierra Leone is the only country in the world in which you travel by air and again travel by sea and use land again.
It could be recalled that the current SLPP led government of President Julius Maada Bio had cancelled a new airport project proposed by the past APC led government of former President Ernest Bai Koroma. The Bio led government instead decided to lunch a project to expand the terminal of the current Lungi Airport.
