Government Spokesman on Street Solar Lights: APC Transforms view of Sierra Leone from Outer Space

Alpha Kanu
Hon. Alhaji Alpha Bakarr Sahid Kanu (aka Alpha Khan), the Sierra Leone Government Spokesman is an erudite, eloquent, well learned science University academic turned formidable politician and who regularly thrills his admirers with his witty takes on contemporary issues. He was at it again past Friday July 12th 2013 when he spoke to the audience at the launch of the Agenda for Prosperity (PRSP-III) document in Freetown. He used the occassion to exemplify how the previous Agenda for Change (PRSP-II) had brought about transformative changes to Sierra Leone.

Alpha Khan cited a myriad of examples of such changes but perhaps the most witty one that got the audience super-thrilled was when he stated that Sierra Leone was now so positively changed that even from outer space, the change was now visible.

Alpha Khan was speaking of the solar powered street lights which are being installed by the Koroma government all over Sierra Leone. According to Alpha Khan, prior to this government coming into office, watching down on Sierra Leone from outer space will reveal a darkened geographical area but President Koromas initiative to install solar lights had now made it possible for a glow to shine from the surface of Sierra Leone at night.

So you see, the change is visible everywhere; even from outer space, the eloquent government spokesman boasted.

Meanwhile in an unrelated development, the Government Spokesman Hon. Alpha Kanu and the Special Executive Assistant (SEA) to the President Dr. Sylvia Blyden have been reconciled by their boss, His Excellency the President, during a closed-door meeting summoned last week.
