 He said unemployment is a single most important factor affecting the growth of the country, stressing that  the current government of President Ernest Bai Koroma should create more jobs for graduates, implement the local content policy act to the letter, create more infrastructural development in the country to fast track growth. Mr Keili noted that these days a lot of graduates who have graduated from various colleges across the country are without jobs, which  he believes is  adversely affecting the economy of the country. He said having worked as chairman of the National Social Security and Insurance Trust (NASSIT) and in several capacities, he has got a wealth of experience in handling issues of national importance affecting the country’s development and as he put it, he is sure to make a big difference in politics, when voted in as the flagbearer of the main opposition party, SLPP during the SLPP convention for the forthcoming election. He expressed confidence in winning the SLPP primary election for the flagbearership of the party. Mr Keili stated that he knows he has already won the trust of party members  and therefore he is very certain of being elected the flagbearer of the party in the next convention, revealing that a lot of things are currently going bad in the country and if one is not at the centre-stage to right these wrongful  decisions, one will not be able to change things as one desires ,which is why he decided to go into politics ,because he wants to be part of the decision making  process of the country to cure some of the ills and menaces affecting  the country’s growth .Mr. Keili said  that education has gone down the tubes, stressing that the  standard of writing of people including new graduates is very poor these days .He said that  government needs to review the educational system, encourage teachers  with more incentives so as to settle down in hard-to reach areas  in  the provinces who are without qualified teachers, adding that basic education needs to be given absolute  attention in the country to repair the cracks in the educational system. He called on the Government as well as educational  providers to provide  more funds  for the  educational sector and the health sector, the two main ministries, he believes ought to have  the best managers, because as he put ,  they carry the lion share of the country’s budget.
