The registration exercise was extended by the National Electoral Commission in a verge to encourage all and sundry to participate in the registration process.
As a result of the expansion of the duration of the registration process, N’Bompa had no choice but to extend his water services to the people and was eventually able to cover centres including; Firestone, Mountain Cut; Elebank Street, Ansarul School, Islamia Islamic Secondary School, Hizbullah Islamina School, Ansarul Secondary School, Dove Cut; Laura Dove Secondary School, Dan Street, Bishop Crowther Primary School, Kanikay, Ahmaddiya Secondary School, Ferry Junction, Ansarul Secondary School, Kissy Dock Yard; National Pentecostal Church, Kissy; Hooke Street, Maellen field; Boston Community Center; Yanni Preparatory Primary School, Kissy; Kissy Police Barracks, Kissy; Methodist Boys High School, Kissy; Kankalay Secondary School, Brima lane; Salafia Islamic Primary School, Porty; Wellington Senior Secondary School, Maillon Street; Wellington Community Center; Olivet Baptist Secondary and Primary School, Peacock Farm; WMA Wellington Industrial Estate; SLMI Preparatory Primary School, Old Wharf; Baptist Comprehensive Academy, Calaba Town; UMC Primary, Calaba Town; Saint Peters The Rock Primary School, Calaba Town; S. D Garage, Osman Lane, Calaba Town; to name but a few.
“Some of the reasons why we took up such ventures are as follows; – Considering the time of this operation in mind, it is in the dry season and the hottest time of the year, many people of different ages suffered the heat gesticulate – The number of registration centres don’t seem to be adequate. – In some areas, one has to walk three to five miles distance in order to access a registration centre. – In some centres, the machines are faulty, due to that some people are going to other areas to access the registration process.” N’Bompa mentioned.
Joseph Saidu told reporters that he was very sympathetic to help the poor not because of politics, but to share with people what he had received from donors. He appealled that Sierra Leoneans must compliment the President Dr, Ernest Bai Koroma Agenda for Prosperity program with brotherliness, love and focus to make mother Salone great.
Distribution was done not on tribal, religious or political affiliation. It was done on progressive philanthropic disposition.
Turay applauded the donors for their tremendous effort, as he uttered that together ‘we can make our beloved Sierra Leone, a great paradise on earth.’ This exercise was on charity basis.
“The idea came from my heart as I love my country as well citizens of our beloved nation. I wish I have the ability to do this right across the country. However, I felt gratified owing to the fact most of the recipients blessed me as they sipped down my water in the hot burning sun.” Turay noted.
Finally, the registration exercise had already ended successfully; some people argued that they were lied upon as to the use of the cards. I am with the opinion that the government meant what they said pertaining to its uses. I also believed that some people are left out of the exercise due to one reason or the others.
