Dear Editor: Please allow me to use your newspaper to make an appeal to H.E. the President, Dr Ernest Bai Koroma for a review of Presidential decision to locate a new airport at Mamamh. (Photo: Lungi International Airport, terminal)
To say the least, this is a location that is not in the best interest of the economics of airports for Sierra Leone and so it should be relocated.
The need for a new airport, will not be deliberated into. This is not the issue. Let us assume that the President in his wisdom has concluded that a new airport is necessary for the country. There are always pros and cons to major decisions.
So let it suffice at this point to accept this decision as beneficial to the construction and infrastructure industry. What we have to look into is the decision to locate this at Mamamah.
