John Sisay and elders of Yoni Chiefdom

All Peoples Congress (APC) Presidential hopeful, John Bonoh Sisay has said that Sierra Leoneans should judge him on who he is and not what is his relationship with President Koroma.
In a South-eastern tour he started today, John Sisay met with farmers and other stake holders in Yoni Chiefdom where he acquainted himself with them and admonished them to double their effort as Sierra Leone must be able to feed itself.
“When I visited you months back, you explained your challenges, now we have been able to put together a manifesto that encompasses all what you told us and we have launched it on Monday. Now we are back to talk to you that we are now ready and prepared for the party’s convention next month.”
The former Chief Executive Officer averred that he has been working in the delivery sector and knows all about delivering success, but stressed that people should judge him on his record and not on his relationship with President Koroma.
“I am a Sierra Leonean and I have the right like all of you to contest for any position in Sierra Leone and I believe I should be judged on my integrity and record rather than talking about family ties.”
He said agriculture will be the backbone of the country’s economy and that be believes massive investment should be done to elevate the farmers so that they in turn will produce more food for the nation.
Mr Sisay plans to tour the entire Southeast as he plans to take his manifesto to them so that they will understand that all information he received from them is in it and get them prepared for the coming APC convention in September.
“I have spoken to and listened to many people, up and down the country. As I travel, I have been struck by the opportunity that is in front of us all. I am making a contract with you. This contract commits me to eight pledges: Better Education for all with 10,000 high quality teachers through a combination of new teacher recruitment/training; Better Opportunities for the young with new jobs and programs to help young people find work and start businesses; Better Help in hard times through the National Social Safety Net; A Better Economy with a National Prosperity Fund to invest in our future; Better Justice for all with a new Human Rights Act; Better Health for all with affordable primary & preventive healthcare and a trained health worker in every community; A Stronger Salone with big companies paying their way and a better deal for small business and better Politics holding listening events in every district to hear from you directly.”
