“I admire the oneness that the people of Koinadugu have exhibited after the award of symbol to candidates. You see both winners and losers interacting and hogging each other as a show of unity,” Pa Foday Mansaray a stakeholder of Wara Wara Chiefdom confided in this medium.
Within the last one month, Momoh Konte and his team were busy crisscrossing the district, engaging stakeholders to consolidate the gains already made. Many people spoken to, commended the executive for the manner in which candidates were awarded the party symbol, stressing that the awarding of symbol was done in the most transparent manner devoid of tribe, religion.
