After volunteering to represent the party in the Kailahun district that many describe as a hostile district for the opposition APC party, Dr. Richard Konteh was today (Sunday 28 February) given a rousing welcome in Kenema by members of the physically challenged in Kenema.
In appreciation of his heroic exploits in Kailahun and all the sacrifices Dr. Konteh continues to make for the APC Party, the physically challenged crowned him as “Father of the Physically Challenged in Sierra Leone” and presented gifts to him as a symbol of their appreciation.
Making the presentation of a gown with white and red colour, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the APC Disabled Wing in Kenema Mr. Idrissa Koroma commended Dr. Richard Konteh for his courage and prowess to campaign for APC for over a week in a district they described as war front. This singular action he said, has emboldened APC grassroot supporters not only in the Kailahun district but in the whole of the Eastern region. “Dr. Richard Konteh we are proud of you and we therefore want to crown you as father of the disabled in Sierra Leone”, he added.
In his brief response, Dr. Richard Konteh thanked the APC Kenema Disabled Group for their kind gesture, saying he has always believed in the APC and has always been demonstrating his commitment. “I am not in this for self aggrandizement. I only believe one has to be there for the party at all times,” he said.
After the brief address, Dr. Richard Konteh conducted a walking tour within the training center of the Kenema Disability Group comprising departments of tailoring, electrical, goldsmith, etc and noted their concerns raised.
In the same vein, party stalwarts spontaneously welcomed D-Unifier in Bo and Mile 91 for what they described as adequate representation of the APC party in the just concluded bye-elections in the Kailahun district.
