SM question

What will be the first thing you will do when you become president?

‘’I’ll set up a strong cabinet or team to embark on boosting skills and utilizing our agricultural potentials.’’

Why?

‘’Attaining food sufficiency as a nation is crucial to our dignity and responsibility to the people. A nation that cannot feed itself does not have the stamina to make its decisions. It’s like a father that leads a home but does not live up to the basic responsibility of feeding his family.’’

How?

‘’I’ll ensure a thorough soil science evaluation is done to assess the areas of Sierra Leone that produce bumper yields of certain crops. I’ll make the Agriculture Ministry visible in all the districts. Mechanized farming will boost local techniques, storage facilities will be built across the country and industries established to process and add value to some of the produce for local and international use. I’ll give targets to districts and work with District Councils in ensuring that thorough agricultural work in farming, fishing, cattle rearing and other practices are done to help the nation’s drive in attaining food sufficiency. In all of this, I’ll be part of the task force in monitoring the different agricultural endeavors of the districts and give public recognition and awards to the district(s) that are doing well to motivate and spur more positive actions.’’
