Lungi gets brand new airport

The majority of us assumed that the ongoing airport expansion at Lungi was just that. However, the owners and government authorities involved in the project have acknowledged that the aforementioned airport is a totally new one, nearly double the size of the old one.
If you recall, during Ernest Bai Koroma's presidency, he sought to build a new airport in Mamama, which would have automatically displaced the Lungi International, putting the Lungi people out of work and reducing the destination's economic activity.

Furthermore, the project, which entailed borrowing money from the Chinese, was deemed an unprofitable agreement by the IMF and the World Bank.

Even though the construction of a new airport was not in President Bio's agenda, it was regarded very significant because the previous one was dilapidated and did not meet contemporary international standards when he assumed office.

President Bio had to find a solution to build a new airport for Sierra Leone without spending any money. Fortunately, a business called SUMMA stepped up, and the project is now moving forward at a quick pace.

Finally, on March 25, 2022, the president paid a working visit to the airport building site, where he was astounded by the progress accomplished thus far by Turkish and Sierra Leonean employees.

During his remarks at the airport, the president stated that the airport project in Sierra Leone is the Turkish greatest private investment in Africa. The project is planned to be completed in December and operational in January of this year.

Dr John Lahai drops a real clanger...lecturers react

Evidence has surfaced that contradicts one of John Idriss Lahai's claims. And, as I've already stated, it's a clear sign that not everything he writes is true. He is doing the right thing, but depending entirely on rumor may jeopardize his kindness to Sierra Leone. Brima Ronnie Kargbo, a youthful and charismatic Sierra Leonean who works for NATCOM as the Director of Administration and Human Resource Management Director, was featured in a publication by John Idriss Lahai. In an exact paraphrase of his "nemakui" English writing skills, Lahai claimed: "Brima Ronnie Kargbo indeed started his Bachelor's degree studies at Njala University. It is also true that he abandoned the course halfway and moved to the UK (this was during the latter part of the civil war: 1996/1997-ish). As such, what is not true, and for which Njala University should investigate (to verify my claim) and, thereafter, sue Brima Ronnie Kargbo for forgery of their certificate (a
