An estimated 2000 voters in the Tainkotops-Makama in Safronko chiefdom may not vote come August 11 if immediate measures are not put in place to repair their roads.
According to our Port Loko correspondent, about ten towns and villages have already been cut off from the rest of the chiefdom due to the poor road network and that many more will be inaccessible with the continuing heavy down pour of rain.
He further states that the APC aspirant, Ibrahim Bundu, has made a special reference to the Maganthe Bridge whose reconstruction project is now standstilled and how it will be extremely difficult to convey electoral materials to these areas.
Meanwhile the incumbent parliamentarian for Port Loko District Constituency 52 was accorded a hero’s welcome at his native Gbinty.
People turned out in large numbers to receive their candidate who was accompanied by a motorcade by several of other symbol winners in the district as they proceeded to the local court barray for a general APC meeting.
Hon. Ibrahim Bundu, in his address, reminded his audience about the confidence the leadership of the party reposed in him and pleaded with all to ensure that the seat was triumphantly returned to the APC party.
A total of seven people within the APC opted for the party symbol which has been awarded to him and he is now contesting against Dr Abass Bundu of the SLPP.
