On the issue of development, he “praised President Koroma for having done exceptionally well in taking development to every corner of the country through the Agenda for Change and Prosperity, and decried past presidents for concentrating development to only where they hailed from”.

He was gratified to say that “the opposition is supportive of Government’s initiatives through consultations” and described such as “not being parochial, but nationalistic”.

Relating to Chiefs in Parliament, he said that “they are independent and are expected to look at issues objectively”.

On the question of relations with other parliaments, he averred that the Parliament of Sierra Leone is represented in the ECOWAS and Pan-African Parliaments, among others, whilst speaking on the need for establishing friendship groups with other parliaments around the world.

Regarding continuity of President Koroma’s legacy, he said that “the APC intends to get a successor that will continue the programmes and policies of President Koroma, to prevent a repeat of Joseph Saidu Momoh’s radical departure from the programmes of erstwhile President Stevens”, cognizant of innovation and adaptation to suit changing circum

One the issue of Sierra Leoneans in the diasporas, he spoke of those that had been given appointments by President Koroma to serve in high offices of State, and called on others with the required qualifications to come home and contribute to national development.

The officers from the United World who interviewed the Speaker are Nicolas Carver and Irene Trincado in the presence of former Minister of Information and Communications, Hon. Ibrahim Ben Kargbo and Ibrahim Sesay, Clerk of Parliament.
