From the Minister’s Desk
I am proud and humbled to be acting as Minister of Works, Housing and Infrastructure at such a crucial time in the wake of infrastructural development of our country. The Government of His Excellency, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma has taken tremendous steps in raising the country from the era of under development to a period of economic progress and global recognition as a place fit for business. The vision and aspiration of His Excellency have inspired us to stand up strongly to the challenges for us to contribute to Sierra Leone’s Agenda for Prosperity. But I am grateful that though the mandate of my ministry poses huge challenges, my staff is committed to meeting the demands of our people. Government is faced with huge expenditure in meeting the cost of reconstructing major and feeder roads.
