Sierra Leonean President Julius Maada Bio has reassured the nation that he remains focused on his plans to improve the country despite the recent unrest in the capital.
In a Twitter post on Monday morning, Bio stated that he had resumed work and was determined to continue delivering on his government’s BIG FIVE GAME CHANGER National Priorities for the overall sustainable economic growth and development of our beloved nation.”
The president acknowledged the challenges facing the country but emphasized that the task before them is too great and urgent to be derailed by those who seek to truncate the peace and security Sierra Leone has enjoyed as a country.
“The task before us is too great and urgent to be derailed by those who seek to truncate the peace and security that we have enjoyed as a country. I once again restate my commitment to building a peaceful and prosperous Sierra Leone that works for all.”
“I once again restate my commitment to building a peaceful and prosperous Sierra Leone that works for all,” he wrote.
Bio’s message of resilience comes amid a wave of panic following Sunday’s attack on the Wilberforce military barracks in Freetown. The attack, which was repelled by government forces, left several people dead and injured.
