Hon. Saa Emerson Lamina, the representative for Kono District and Deputy Leader Two of the House of Parliament, has called on all ministers to take proactive steps towards efficient service delivery and prioritize the nation’s progress.
He made this call in a recent parliamentary session.
During his speech addressing various aspects of the presidential speech, Lamina underscored the importance of fostering a constructive democracy and placing the people at the heart of all developmental efforts.
Highlighting a specific paragraph from the presidential speech that emphasized the significance of political cohesion and unity in serving the people, Lamina unveiled a series of strategic development plans.
Lamina proposed two options to address Sierra Leone’s food security challenges: engaging foreign farmers for large-scale agricultural projects and harnessing the potential of the country’s human capital by collaborating across various government agencies to empower the workforce.
With a focus on youth empowerment, Lamina urged the Minister of Youth to devise strategies to engage idle young individuals and harness their potential for the nation’s benefit. He envisioned a training initiative that would allow the youth to contribute meaningfully to the country’s growth after years of skill development.
Emphasizing professionalism within the public sector, Lamina challenged ministers to devise strategies that rival those implemented by international non-governmental organizations (INGOs) and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) for the betterment of the nation.
He also proposed a renewed supervisory role for the president over each ministry.
Lamina extended his call for proactive action to various sectors, including the media, interreligious council, opposition, and other stakeholders. He urged them to play an active role in advocating for peace and maintaining harmony throughout the nation.
