President Julius Maada Bio has committed himself and his New Direction Government to solving the basic welfare concerns or needs of citizens in every region of the country, with education and health at the heart of his government’s focus. The President, upon assuming office, wisely appointed people who share his vision and determination, and among such appointees, are the minister of energy, Alhaji Kanja Sesay and the CEO of Leadway, Mr Babadi Kamara. These two loyal giants from Bo have been spending sleepless nights to ensure that the President was complemented in his efforts to better the lives of Sierra Leoneans.
The Bo Government Hospital currently stands to benefit from a massive goodwill intervention in the areas of electricity and water. Thanks to Messrs Babadi Kamara and Kanja Sesay who continue to stay true to their love for their humble political beginnings. It could be recalled that the Bo Government Hospital sprang into the social media spotlight for all the negative reasons, with particular disturbing reference to the lack of electricity and water and the difficulties which patients and nurses have had to face in the midst of these challenges .
Energy minister and Babadi Kamara have admirably dashed to the rescue of Bo and the Government Hospital. They have secured a 100kva generator which will serve as a standby generator for the Hospital. The two men have committed themselves to providing fuel and to taking care of running costs and maintenance for a period of six months.
In the area of water, the two men in collaboration with SALWACO whose director Mr Munda Sandi has always been on hand, will also repair the two major boreholes within the premises of the hospital and will erect or fix up tanks , pipes and other things necessary to enable the hospital enjoy a free flow water.
Suffice it to state that the hospital has a SALWACO water facility, but with the lack of consistent electricity, the facility cannot run on a 24-hour basis. The boreholes will therefore provide a massive sense of relief and alternative to patients and health workers alike. They will be up and running on a 24-hour basis and they will surely cushion the burden or strain on patients in particular.
The cost of materials needed for the two projects is expected to be in the neighbourhood of two hundred and twenty two million leones. The two projects when completed will positively impact or save lives and will help restore dignity to the second city’s central referral hospital.
Messrs Sesay and Kamara are united in their quest to transform Bo and to give different areas of life in the district massive facelifts.
