Let's Make Sierra Leone a Better Place
Our nation’s success is built on the founding principles of unity, freedom, justice, unlimited opportunity, quality education, commitment to hard work, and the freedom to pursue our dreams.
D-Unifier team envision a nation where every Sierra Leonean is better educated; live a healthy life in a healthy environment; prosper and have more money in their pockets or bank accounts; have equal opportunity to live a life of purpose and abundance; a nation where our natural resources benefit every citizen; a nation that will create sustainable jobs; a nation that will empower women and girls, youths and seniors, and invest in national unity and the private sector.
Our goal is to make Sierra Leone a Better Place to Live, Work and Play. Together, we can afford to take care of each other in Sierra Leone. We can lift each other and break the cycle of poverty. We can build a better Sierra Leone for everyone. Together, we can make it happen!
A Message from Dr. Richard Konteh
My fellow Sierra Leoneans,
Our country Sierra Leone is in a period of tremendous upheaval. The more we visualize what comes next, the clearer it becomes that the future of our country is hopeless.
Over 60% of Sierra Leoneans live in extreme poverty today. The country remains among the world’s poorest countries. Rampant corruption, tribalism, violence, income and economic inequality are the defining challenges we face today as a nation.
In the past three years, I have travelled around the country, meeting millions of Sierra Leoneans -young and old, and listening to them share their experiences on life in Sierra Leone. It became apparent to me how complex and deeply entrenched the poverty problem in Sierra Leone has become and how urgently an actual, actionable national development and poverty reduction plan is needed.
It’s not just about a lack of financial resources. But it is about not having the same opportunities as other people. It’s about feeling invisible, diminished and devalued by society. It’s about being forced to make impossible choices, like buying medicine or buying food. And if they have to purchase small food, who will eat first - the parent or the kids? It’s about the constant struggle that keeps people trapped, striving for a life that, too often, they can’t quite reach.
Since 2018, the people of Sierra Leone have endured blatant human rights abuses, political intimidations, harassment, injustice and brutal killings by the SLPP government. The peaceful society we have worked hard to build has now been politicized along tribal lines. Sierra Leoneans who do not belong to, or support the SLPP party are summarily dismissed from public service, taking away their sources of livelihood. This is not the new direction Sierra Leoneans voted for in 2018. We need to take our country back.
Whether it is people with disabilities, single mothers escaping violence, the chronically underemployed looking for more stability and security, or the thousands of others struggling with poverty, I've heard every day from ordinary Sierra Leoneans who have been left behind and are looking for better opportunities and better lives.
It is for this cause that I am on a mission. I'm on a political mission to do something new and bold to get Sierra Leone back on track. I’m aspiring for the presidential candidacy (Flag bearer) for the All Peoples Congress Party (APC), and I invite you to join me.
I invite you to come, and let's make Sierra Leone a better place! Let's create a nation where every Sierra Leonean is better educated; live a healthy life in a healthy environment; prosper and have more money in their pockets; have equal opportunity to live a life of purpose and abundance; a nation where our natural resources benefit every citizen; a nation that will create sustainable jobs; a nation that will empower women and girls, youths and seniors, and invest in national unity and the private sector.
If you have any doubt, COME AND SEE!
