Blue Line Construction and Investment Company (S/L) Ltd operating within the East End of Freetown is determined to boost a huge number of students from approved and accredited colleges with at least a 50% payment of tuition fees for eligible students across the country.

The nationwide financial assistance will, according to sources, commence during the First Semester – 2019. Those substantial amounts are intended to be disbursed by segments based on the number of students that will meet the set criteria. The Universities and a Teacher Training College that were chosen are Fourah Bay College (FBC), Institute of Public Administration and Management (IPAM), Njala University, University of the North (UNIMAK) and the Milton Margai College of Education and Technology (MMCE & T).

In a rather exciting mood, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company, Mohamed Fornah revealed in an exclusive interview with this medium that a whole lot of selection criteria will be conducted so that the actual beneficiaries deserve such a compassionate offer. The young patriotic Sierra Leonean further clarified that no specific number of students will be targeted at this point but stressed on the fact that they are very sensitive to gender parity.

Fornah disclosed that empowering female folks has always been his dream over the years. “Blue Line is well known for the free bus services they are rendering to school going pupils and students in the Freetown municipality at present but we are rendering quite a good number of humanitarian services gearing towards the socioeconomic development of Sierra Leoneans. We are tirelessly working on strategies to extend our free transportation to Bo, Kenema and Makeni. Other district headquarters will be boosted as well. Please let me make it categorically clear that my Company is a private owned and that both private and government schools are currently benefiting from our free bus services,” asserted the passionate CEO.
