“There are some things you don’t pray for… you just get blessed with them.

I am grateful for God’s Blessings as I was able to Chair the National Delegates Conference of the Sierra Leone People’s Party- one of the two oldest parties in Africa- which endorsed our Flagbearer for the 2023 Presidential elections. What an honor!!

I am also grateful to have worked with the best and very diverse team within the Independent Electoral Monitoring and Observation Committee who conducted 15 National Officer elections including the Party Chairman in a very inclusive, transparent, open and safe process.

I was proud to have been born in the SLPP where my parents were both beaten by APC for supporting candidates in this party. I am proud to introduce my own children to this Party and tell them about the family atmosphere, the dancing and creativity and most importantly, that the future of this country rests in our hands.

I am proud to be a member of the Sierra Leone People’s Party- the only Social Democratic Party of Sierra Leone. We have showed the world how to do internal party politics.

I want to thank H.E President Bio and Leader of the SLPP for nominating me as Chair of IEMOC and to the rest of the National Executive Council for endorsing that nomination. It was such a beautiful pleasure to serve in this role where we have learned a lot, sweated a lot, screamed a lot and most importantly, had lots of fun.
