That good to hear. More African countries should do the same. I strongly believe that a country’s resources, natural or otherwise should be controlled by its people in some form. I hope that Sierra Leone will follow Ghana’s example, it seems that most of our elected leaders are more than willing to barter our ” inheritance” (mining, fishing and forestry consessions etc.) for a “bowl of pottage” ( foriegn aid, bribes, you name it).
