His Excellency Dr Ernest Bai Koroma has said that the newly dedicated Magistrate and High Courts at Ross Road, Freetown, are for the people of the east.

 

He recalled that the very first University established in Sierra Leone, in Freetown, was located in the east as FBC was first founded and located at Cline Town east of Freetown.

 

The President paid glowing tribute to the people of the east as well as the fact that the current Chief Justice was brought up and raised in the east of Freetown.President Koroma also noted that a lot of his developmental initiatives have been located in the east because it has the highest population in the entire city.

 

He spoke of the road network his government was trying to improve in the area, and the electricity supply being provided to some parts of Freetown through the Blackhall Road Power Station also located in the east end of Freetown.

 

The Chief Executive used the occasion to talk about the importance of the pending elections for the continued development of the country.

 

He warned that the ICC is watching as we rapidly approach the November elections, adding that any candidate with good human rights record should campaign on his record and not try to force his candidacy down the throats of the people.

 

President Ernest Bai Koroma also called on the people of the east to seize the opportunity accorded by his government to establish a High Court after 100 years in the most populated part of Freetown.

 

Following a conducted tour of the new Court at Ross Road, the Father of the Nation called for the replication of the facility across the entire country.

 

A galaxy of members of the bench, the Sierra Leone Police, religious and community leaders, including civil society organizations and the fourth Estate were in attendance.
