The victory of the African-American Barack Obama as President of The United States Of America has been celebrated by many Sierra Leoneans who see him as a son of Africa. Awoko’s Solomon was out and about to seek the views of some people with regards the victory of Obama.
I feel good and at home over the Obama’s victory given the fact that he is an African American who might use his good office to develop the African continent which has been termed as backward. I hope he would attract development and investments for Africa.
The news of Barack Obama’s victory came as a dream come true, after years of segregation in America. With his victory every barrier would be removed in the way of Africa’s development, as many African-Americans would join forces with the President elect to work towards consolidating bi-lateral relationship and hence strengthening Africa’s economy.
I feel very good and satisfied with the out come of that election, which brought an African- American to power in America.
Obama is a pride to Africa, for relentlessly striving hard to achieve a life-long dream of African- Americans who have for long been deprived of their right of ruling the most powerful nation on earth.
I am happy with Obama’s victory, because he would use his good office to bring development to Africa.
It’s our right as blacks to rule America, because our ancestors, who were taken across the high seas to America, contributed to the development of that continent.
