The President is beautifying the country.” She also said :” I spent Christmas in Binkolo. I had great fun being around my people. Binkolo got street lights and the town is lively.”

She added that President Koroma has great love for his country and is not bothered by detractors.

Mr. Pavi Jalloh of New Jersey returned yesterday and was profuse in his commendation of the progress Sierra Leone is making under President Ernest Bai Koroma’s leadership. He said : “Oh, my God, Reverend, there is a lot of progress going on in Sierra Leone ” He too however talked about the traffic at the East End which hindered him from collecting newspapers for me from John Baimba Sesay, who took four bundles of newspapers to the ferry port for me. Somebody else returning from holidays would have to deliver the papers.

Ms. Fatmata Kamara of New York said she was in Bo and Kenema and spoke about the streets in both townships that have been paved or constructed by the Government. She said she did more Christmas shopping at the Kenema Mall for her relatives .

Amadu Jalloh of New York said he spent Christmas in Kabala and showed pictures of street lights in the town.

Many people returning from Sierra Leone do not believe that President Koroma is receiving all the credit he deserves for the magnificent work he is doing in Sierra Leone. The opinion of people is that if Sierra Leone had been a country that has not been consumed by ugly partisan politics which is blinding anti-APC  zealots to the truth, President Koroma would have been esteemed far more than what is being seen, because, according to them, no other president in the history of the country has delivered this number of development projects in Sierra Leone.

“We know that the SLPP  and other dissident elements are too hungry to return to power . But at least, they should give the present government the credit it deserves for developing the country “, Fatmata Kamara averred . She regrets that dirty partisan politics has overshadowed patriotism.
