On the 9th April, 2017, the Chief Executive Officer for SOCIAL COOPERATION FOR DEVELOPMENT ORGANISATION, Mr. Joseph Saidu N’Bompa Turay after a careful observation and assessment of the ongoing National Registration of our people, came up with the following suggessions.

Ď% Considering the time of this operation in mid dry season and the hottest time of the year, may people of different ages suffered the heart wave.

 Ď% The number of registration centers don’t seem to be adequate.

Ď% In some areas, one has to walk three to five miles distances to access a registration centers, under the hot burning Sun.

Ď%Some people spend more than two days to be registered.

Ď% In other centers, the machines are faulty, especially Central Mosque registration center machines  was not in working order still I left the center, some leaving the area residents with no choice but to process; ETC.    

One of the young first time voters drinking his water from a sachet supplied by Mr. Nbompa


Anyhow, we though it fit in an attempt to help with the situation through the provision of (10, 000) ten thousand packets of fresh pure drinking water to registration centers from Eastern Police starting from various center like Groundnut Market, Kulafai Rashedeen, Susan Bay Community, Baptist Primary Regent Road, Victoria Park, Central Police Station, Regent Squre, Kroo Court House, Fawe School, Last Banking (Kroo Bay), Boxton Community, the Ark Community, Christ Church, Saint John School, Saint Edward Secondary School, Saint Anthony School ( Kington), Saint Thomas Municipal School, Saint Anthony Boys (Syke Street), YWCA, FSSG, Grace Brethren  ( Brookfield), Belliya Park, UMC School ( Dwarzard), Old School, Cadiff School ( Hill Station), Infant Primary ( Wilberforce ), Servicess Secondary School, Emanet Primary School ( Lumley), Cape Town Community( Aberdeen ) Aberdeen Police Station, Aberdeen Community Center, Grammer School, Murry Town Municipal School, Ephraim Robert Municipal School ( Congo Cross), Church Of Christ ( Tengbeh Town), Kulafal Rashudem(Goderich), Temporal polling Station of 7th battalion Goderich.

This truly was a charitable offer for our people regardless of your place of origin, tribe, religion, or sex. The distribution was not discriminatory and i more sure the water was distributed in my presence. We were able to reach fifty registration centers.


At one center a lady was on the queue ( line) and she was not feeling good, by the time she was offered the water she exclaimed that he who brings water brings life, most people  fought to get the water. I am glad me and my organization could do something to help, but thanks to Hon. Balogun Pormasu Koroma ( (Minister of Transport and Aviation),  Alhaji Shekito ( Special Adviser to President on Social Welfare), Esq Lansana Dumbuya, (Lawyer), Mr. Dennis Garvie (EGTC General Manager), Mr. Paul Kalawa (Agriculture Ministry), Mr. Issa Kanu ( (Diaspora UK), Mr. Abu Bakarr Kamara ( DJ Boxx), Mr Samuel Wise Bangura (AYV) for their support to make this plight successful.

I think it compliment the His Excellency, the President Dr. Ernest Bai  Koroma Agenda For Prosperity program.


With the trend of events i call upon all patriotic Sierra Leoneans to join us in this operation. We must help and love ourselves;  and this is non political but to help pass a pure, fresh  packet of drinking water to the less unprivileged  and unfortunate brother and sister and all.
