A self-help project, which comprises youths and prominent indigenes of Marampa chiefdom in northern district of Port Loko, has been launched.
It was officially launched by the Port Loko district Constituency 50 Member of Parliament, Hon. Alhaji Obarami Daramy, with support from Professor Paul Kamara, commissioner Kanu, Santigie Santos Sesay and Ahmed Adakula Koroma of the Port Loko Teachers’ College.
Although this project aimed at enhancing certain basic amenities including the supply of safe drinking water, health care facility for those in distant places and rehabilitating the 14 towns and villages ravaged during the 11 years of civil conflict, the focus now is on the maintenance of roads in the township of Lunsar.
The Constituency 50’s chairman for the ruling All People’s Congress in Lunsar, Ahmed Deen Kamara, said they were back-filling the streets in Port Loko with a special soil from Magbafit, a village about two miles from Lunsar.
He said they were currently working at the Father Street and would continue along the Gaudlupeh Street.
According to Fred Kanu, poor road network had rendered most parts of Lunsar inaccessible particularly during the rainy season.
He stressed the need for a combined effort in order to give a deserving facelift to Lunsar, which used to be one of the famous towns in the Port Loko district with tarred streets and regular electricity supply.
