"Government is here to inspire you to learn and become empowered”- Alieu Ibrahim Koyo Kamara Speaks
Erstwhile Member of Parliament candidate for the ruling Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) in Constituency 122, East of Western Area Urban District, Alieu Ibrahim Koyo Kamara has said that the government of President Julius Maada Bio is here to inspire students/pupils to let them be empowered for a better future.
Mr. Koyo Kamara, as he is fondly called, made this statement at the Nine Lesson and Carol Service of East-End Municipal School, Kennedy Street, Freetown on Thursday 13th December 2018, at the school ground, during which occasion he donated five (5) bags of rice, three (3) oil five (5) gallons of oil, a carton of tomatoes and a carton of Maggie, as a means to complement President Bio’s School Feeding Programme.
“My target is to complement the School Feeding Programme in all primary schools across constituency 122,” Mr. Koyo assured, adding that he starts with the East-End Municipal School because it is his own primary school, where he attended primary schooling in the early 1990s.
Mr. Koyo said he is launching a project for the distribution of two hundred and fifty (250) bags of rice to all primary schools in his constituency; which covers the Fourah Bay Community, Kossoh Town Community, Guard Street Community, Moa Wharf Community amongst others, to complement the President’s School Feeding Programme.
“My aspiration and beliefs in representing our school and flying the flag high comes from a deep humanitarian feeling and also the dire need of a positive and astute leadership,” Mr. Koyo said, adding that “For far too long the East-End Municipal School has been deprived of its original values in terms of development and good representation.” He said: “It is against this backdrop that I believe my intervention will yield progress in my beloved school.”
Meanwhile, elaborating on the productivity of Mr. Koyo Kamara at the Carol Service, Miss Admire Jones East-End Municipal School Head Teacher-Infant acknowledged the timely intervention of Mr. Koyo towards the welfare of pupils in the schools. Miss Admire urged all present to join hand with Mr. Koyo to elevate the school, and to further contribute in ensuring that President Bio succeeds in his education agenda for Sierra Leone.
In addition, Miss Admire Jones spoke about the brilliancy of Mr. Koyo even as his days as a pupil of the East- End Municipal School. “As a product of this school, from class 1-6, leader in his days in the school from 1990-1996, he was part of the school drama group, sport team and in his final year was the senior prefect of the school. He even tops the school during the 1996 National Primary school Examination (NPSE),” Miss Admire recalled.
Meanwhile, the entire Carol Service was accompanied by songs and dances from pupils and teacher who embraced theirs.
