Viva Sierra-Leone

So similar so different

A land of people similar to mine, a history of independence not too different by 7 months, civil wars fought and done, natural resources as abundant as a curse.

Elections – free, fair and credible being one of the poorest countries in the world, their faith in universal suffrage should put us all to shame.

Sierra-Leone has just successfully conducted democratic elections; Nigeria must now have run out of excuses about how they conducted theirs.

The prosperity of Sierra-Leone beckons and may those who serve in rulership be emboldened to change their country for the better.
