“We are going to make sure that we introduced a hybrid economic system. We acknowledged the fact that some political parties may frown at this system because they know the benefit it will bring amongst the people and we are read y to equitably distribute the resources to the nation and not for the selected few.” he mentioned
He further emphasized that if ReNIP is elected to serve they will increase the minimum wage from 600NL to 2,000NL. He pointed out that the party is ready and they have the mechanism to take control of governance in Sierra Leone.
He further emphasized that as a party they don’t believe in donors, but effectively managing the country’s resources.
He expressed his disappointment in the current health system in the country, as one of their Chairperson in ReNIP Ward Constituency went to Cape Verde to access better medical facility but died during child birth.
He also acknowledged that many Sierra Leoneans are starving and many could not afford a full square meal a day. He added that ReNIP is ready to tackle this issue by enforcing firm price control measures.

He confirmed that they have seen huge progress in the Caribbean and various countries because they have decided to take control and as the party is ready to take control nobody will tell them it is impossible.

He expressed the Party’s determination to transform Sierra Leone as the least developed countries in Africa though people may not like the description. He made an analogy with Rwanda who experienced a Genocide are among leading countries because they take responsibility. However, he mentioned that Sierra Leone was in the Forefront in 1826 but we have lost everything.
