APC To Boost Free Quality Education


By Thomas S. Kembay

The main opposition All People’s Congress (APC) through its parliamentary representatives have donated towards the Sierra Leone People’s Party’s (SLPP’) led government free quality education flagship project.

According to the Main Opposition Leader in Parliament, Hon. Chernor Ramadan Maju Bah Esq. otherwise known as Chericoco, as a party they know they believe in education for which he said they have reached a resolution after consultations to pledge a month’s salary towards the ‘New Direction’ free quality education scheme.

Hon Chericoco maintained that, as a grassroots party, they believe the interest of the masses comes first thus the endorsement and commitment of all APC MPs salaries to be donated to the scheme.

As the main opposition party, he assured that they will always support government on moves that are of national interest.

The Speaker Hon Dr. Abass Bundu lauded the APC MPs for endorsing his pledge, noting that the endorsement came at the right time when he received a letter from the Chief Minister who is in charge of the programme reminding him about the status of pledges made on behalf of MPs. The pledge, he said, will take effect in January 2019.
