Mr. Samuel Sam-Sumana is a native of Kono District in the Eastern Province of the Republic of Sierra Leone, West Africa.

Mr. Samuel Sam-Sumana: APC Running Mate

Mr. Samuel Sam-Sumana is currently the Chief Executive Officer of Aries Rehabilitation Construction and Supplies (ARCS) SL Ltd, incorporated under the laws of Sierra Leone. As Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Sam-Sumana has shown his Leadership and Management skills when dealing with people in his employ. He is a motivator and a good listener who seeks solutions to Company problems using innovative methods developed while serving as Vice Chairman Kono-Union Chapter, Minnesota in the United States of America.

At the height of the civil war in Sierra Leone, Sam-Sumana was agonized over the near total collapse of the infrastructure of Kono District. In his position as Vice Chairman, Kono-Union Chapter USA, he paid frequent visits to the district and forged a good working relationship with the chiefdom authorities in Kono and Kenema District. He pioneered the construction and repairs of roads in Kono and Kenema districts using funds raised through advocacy and his own personal funds for the betterment of the then inaccessible areas of the Eastern region of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

Earlier, Mr. Samuel Sam-Sumana served as Managing Director of the United Diamond Mining Company, Kodu Town, Kono District, Sierra Leone. With his expertise in the field of diamond mining, he used to introduce environmental friendly and just mining methods in the field bringing development to the people where his company operated.

Mr. Samuel Sam-Sumana also served as the Regional Manager for C-12 International, a Huston, Texas based company engaged in diamond buying in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.

His native ingrained knowledge of the diamond industry made an asset to the company where he oversaw training, recruitment, planning and marketing. He provided advice to the company on the socio-political condition in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia.

Samuel Sam-Sumana holds a Bachelor of Science (BSC) degree in Management Information System from the Metropolitan State University, Minnesota, USA. Samuel also holds two Diplomas (Diamond Rough Grading, Sorting and Polishing) from the America Institution of Diamond Cutting and Polishing, Deerfield Beach, Florida, USA, and a Diploma (Computer Network Support Specialist) from Knollwood Computer and Business School, St Louis Park, Minnesota, USA.

While in the USA, Mr. Samuel Sam-Sumana worked for Prudential Financial Group as the System Officer of the network support. He provided the strategic management and operational oversight for the Group, providing training and counseling to subordinate staff. At Allina Health Services, Mr. Samuel Sam- Sumana ran the Network Support System. He provided the same service to Seagate Technologies in the United States of America.

Mr. Samuel Sam-Sumana is a member of the "Five-Man Committee" of the All Peopleís Congress Party; a party with which Samuel has had a life-long association imbibing the populist character of the Party; a key ingredient in Mr. Samuel Sam-Sumanaís personal make-up. He has contributed reasonably to the APC in the Kono District and beyond with the aim of strengthening the party in the District. Mr. Samuel Sam- Sumana is a Substantial Contributor to the Kono District Scholarship Board, which underscores his commitment to the betterment of the district in particular and the Republic of Sierra Leone in general.
