He mentioned that people are not going to walk long distance to deliver message, but that could be done via the mobile phones.

He applauded NATCOM for their relentless effort in connecting villages and towns across the country and that Momoh Konteh should be called Momoh Connectivity, owing to the fact that Momoh happened to be determined to connect each and every Sierra Leonean.

Victor Bockarie Foh applauded NATCOM and the mobile companies for their relentless effort in reaching every part of the country, especially in the outskirt villages across the nation.  He mentioned that the APC government will continue to provide the enabling environment for NAATCOM and the mobile companies to reach everyone in the country.

“My government will place mobile communication in the hands of Pa Kamara in Bombali,  Mammy Boima in Bo and each and every Sierra Leoneans living in his/her localities across the nation” V.P Foh ascertained.

Chief Executive Officer, Africell mobile company Shadi Al-Gerjawi stated that the process to erect the towers in that part of the country was cumbersome task. He encouraged the people to utilize the provision, as he reiterated that the people now have the world in their hands through communication, adding that they could achieve a lot with the aid of telecommunications.
