Ernest Koroma - I Will Fight Poverty As President

All Peoples Congress (APC) leader Hon. Ernest Koroma claims the Sierra Leonean has one basic problem namely: poverty. "As President, I will tackle it head-on," he declared in Koinadugu district during his recent tour.

Koroma said that he was receiving assurances, both public and private, of massive support in the next elections. "Let us stand firm and together restore the dignity of this country." He predicted that the APC party would win all elections in Koinagudu district.

"From the assurances I received from the people of this district and the promises I am getting from other regions in the country, it is certain that the APC is moving towards a landslide victory," he said.

"As long as you have registered, you have armed yourself for the elections. I am encouraging you to stand firm, as Koinadugu is divided into six constituencies and every constituency has an APC candidate," he said, adding that Koinadigu is the richest in terms of agricultural produce but the least developed district in Sierra Leone.
