The passing of the Freedom of Information Bill into a law by the APC majority in the Parliament of Sierra Leone is a triumph for the APC party and government. It is also a collective victory for the people of Sierra Leone before of the immense benefits of a Freedom of Information law on good governance.

In ways which most of the public may not be aware, the FOI Bill becoming FOI law today is as much the personal accomplishment of the tenacity and courage of Barrister Emmanuel Saffa Abdulai as it is a slap on the face of the main opposition party today, the SLPP.
