Sierra Leone's President, Julius Maada Bio, will put an end to food insecurity.


Anyone who knows President Bio for keeping his word will never have any doubts about anything he says. Let's look at some historical evidence to see if his pledge to always stand by his words can be supported.

When Siaka Stevens' APC implemented one-party rule, Sierra Leone turned into a place where everyone suffered, especially those who opposed the terror regime. Nothing that the Bible and the Quran mention as being a punishment in hell was not unleashed on the people of Sierra Leone by the dangerously-run One Party State government.

The one-party state agenda was undoubtedly a typical form of government adopted by the majority of African countries to encourage political stability for a continuous administration of state activities. Many African nations took advantage of the chance to lay down tangible development pillars for their nations, particularly in terms of infrastructure development. Contrarily, the Siaka Stevens and Momoh-led APC one-party states ruined every aspect of the nation's development and tormented Sierra Leoneans using the systems.

In their book "Why Nations Fail: The Origins of Power, Property, and Poverty" by Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson, some renowned economists’ authors were forced to address the systematic destruction of infrastructure that Sierra Leone encountered. I won't go into great detail about what the book says, but I will suggest that you read it. Check the book ....Why nations Fail

A significant portion of Sierra Leoneans had to rebel against the government on the basis of that tragic foundation, and dramatically, some military personnel had to intervene and topple the government. The mission also included President Julius Maada Bio.

In a nutshell, the military intervened to overthrow the government for reasons other than partisanship. Instead, it did so for the benefit of the nation as a whole. More than 70% of the people in the country at the time supported the transition, particularly a democratic one in which everyone would be able to participate.

Let's get back to the argument for why President Julius Maada Bio is someone who consistently keeps his word. In the beginning of the NPRC's involvement, they pledged to destroy the One-Party State of governance, rule for a brief period, and then return power to civilian authority. Some of his colleagues wanted to ignore the deal and hold onto power longer than was intended. He, President Bio, and a few other heroic troops invaded, toppled their own government,

 governed for a while, and then returned power to a democratically elected government.

Let's talk about the recent past. In 2018, President Bio pledged to implement free, quality education if he won the election. a pledge that some journalists and the then-incumbent party believed to be unattainable and interpreted as one of their standard political song lyrics.

Fortunately, when President Julius Maada Bio won the election, he wasted no time putting the Free Quality Education program into action. Despite the project's difficulties, this free service has helped a lot of Sierra Leoneans and continues to do so. It has also significantly increased the number of students enrolled in school. The advantages of this FQE are significant for the future of this nation.

However, President Bio didn't just concentrate on the FQE as a lone initiative to bring about advancement in our country. He put systems in place to improve agriculture during his first term in office. due to his conviction that food security and education go hand in hand. And because he is a "Talk and Do" President, he has pledged to provide for the country food sufficiency. This is not the typical political rhetoric you've heard from other politicians; rather, it is a pledge that has been in the works for a very long time and is now ready to be carried out.

To witness the spectacular shift in food security and sustainability, we hope that everyone will remain calm and patriotic. President Julius Maada Bio's promise would undoubtedly be kept.

Dr. John Idriss Lahai, the whistle-blower for fake degrees is "Social Medially dead". If you recall, in the year 2022, Dr. John Idriss Lahai, a whistle-blower who exposed a phony degree, attracted the attention of every patriotic Sierra Leonean. His activity came to light after it was found that numerous Sierra Leoneans had received honorary PhDs from a Waterloo, Western Rural District postsecondary institution that was not accredited. Even well-known Sierra Leoneans, including the previous Inspector General of Police, were given honorary PhDs by the university known as Dominion University. When it was determined that the aforementioned university lacks the integrity to grant such a credential, the IG subsequently declined the offer. Dominion University PHD award ceremony From this point on, Dr. John Idriss Lahai began to expose Sierra Leoneans who, in his opinion, had earned questionable academic credentials. He then began to draw attention from people from all

A scammer from Sierra Leone has been captured by Guinean police.

  The person in the picture is actually Abdulai Jalloh, despite the fact that he is identified as a lecturer from Njala University under the name of Dr. Kanu. In early January of this year, he posted in a WhatsApp group in Kambia that he had scholarship chances and could help people acquire government pin codes, among other things, but that the offer was only valid for those from the South and east.   Someone sent him NLe1,500 for overseas study without realizing he was a scammer.  The scammer claimed that the entire application process for the scholarship cost 3,000 New Leone.  Later, the contacted person realized that he was not who he had been representing himself to be, and he immediately blocked the victim of his syndicate.  He once more perpetrated the same crime against Molai, another individual, and someone else.  In the pretense of an international scholarship, he demanded 3000 New Leones from each person. He accepted the cash and fled without telling them where he was.  The m
