Bio In Kono Today


In continuation of his nationwide thank-you and meet the people tour, His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio will arrive today in the swing political district of Kono which decisively determined the outcome of the keenly contested March 2018 presidential run-off election that saw Bio emerge as the winner.

Ahead of this auspicious visit, Vice President Dr. Juldeh Jalloh led an advanced team that arrived in Kono on Wednesday to prepare the ground for the President’s visit.

It could be recalled that VP Jalloh last year had to rush to Kono where political tension rose between supporters of SLPP and C4C some crabby domestic issues during which he reminded the people of Kono of the need to respect authorities and to be united and work together peacefully and amicably for the furtherance of the district and by extension, the nation.

As usual, in the plan tour, President Bio will be meeting with traditional and religious leaders of the district including party members and supports.

As in all the other districts he had visited, President Bio is expected to stress on the need for national unity, discipline and the fight against corruption.

From Kono, President Bio is expected tp proceed to the neighboring eastern district of Kailahun.

Meanwhile, reports have it that the people of Kono and Kailahun are in a jubilant mood to accord the President a triumphant entry into the two districts.
