The Honourable Vice President of Sierra Leone Dr Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh has encouraged students of Njala University to vote for a politician who understands the debate about the 2023 election.

He explained that the 2023 election debate is about the future of school pupils, noting that the future of Sierra Leone is about the development of Sierra Leone now and the future.

Vice President Jalloh lamented that the next five years after the June 24, 2023 election is very vital for the future of Sierra Leone.
