By Alimamy I Kamara (Alkay D’ Prince):
Madam Beatrice Conteh’s joined the APC Women’s Congress for a round-table discussion on women issues in governance and socioeconomic issues. In this meeting, the national Women’s coordinator promised closer co-operation on all fronts, more especially on the unification of the APC women’s congress not only in Sierra Leone but the diaspora as a whole, and affirmed that, they as women of this notable political party called the APC have been the long-standing economic backbone (Morally, Physically, and Financially wise etc etc…), to galvanize support for the party. She told them to be committed to ideals and philosophy of the APC party, and told them to put the past behind them; by doing so it will brings prosperity and opportunity not only to them as members of the APC Women’s congress put to the general citizenry.
In this meeting they recognized the fact that, they had to overcome significant barriers that exist, this can only come to fruition if they work collectively as a unit and speak with one voice, and therefore is likely to have greater insight into how to ease those barriers for younger women aspiring to be like them, and they also acknowledged that they’ve to be a formidable contributor to the success of the APC party in this coming elections. As for Madam Beatrice Conteh, she believes it’s not just about doing the right thing, but understanding that women in leadership can be a very powerful leverage not only in party politics, but success for business, for communities and for our entire economy, and this can expand and grow the membership. To get this conventional path straight as an arrow they have to take a pragmatic approach to the leadership of the party structures, and build on the new relationship with the Presidential Candidate and his running-mate.
The National Woman Coordinator for the United States and Canada also recognize the importance of co-operation to promote economic growth of the party, and advance the main objectives of the APC National Women’s Congress across the aisle. She is optimistic of the fact that, the outcome of the meeting was a success, and believed they will continue this kind of dialogue on a regular basis, to pursue a shared outcomes that will be sustainable for the APC party, and increase women’s efficiency in politics.. Kudos to you Madam National Women’s Coordinator and who also doubles as the APC WMC President, Beatrice Conteh; you’ve proven time and time again that you’re a great woman of substance and a leader to reckon with. Go Madam, go, the sky is your limit, and God is by your side in your leadership drive!!!.
