Statement to voters
I am originally from Sierra Leone. I’ve lived in UK for 25 years, in Southwark and London. I studied at the London College of Communication, University of Arts London and then at Birkbeck University, and also worked at the Job Centre Plus in Newington for several years. I’ve been a committed community activist for several years and, for 3 consecutive years, I was Chairman for Rockingham Tenant and Residents Association in Rockingham estate, where I live. I was also elected as Local Councillor for Chaucer ward in 2006 and, during my term, I again served as Chairman of Borough and Bankside Community Council and deputy Mayor of Southwark respectively under the Liberal Democrat Administration.
My community Leadership activities couldn’t have been possible without my involvement with the Liberal Democrats. The party gave me the opportunity to exhibit my ability to serve the community, and made me appreciate, understand and benefit from the concepts of equality, fairness, human right and the rule of law, which are the principles of the party.
I am currently working in the private housing sector in Covent Garden. I am also a voluntary member of a registered Sierra Leone Charity Organisation – Yengema Development Association (YENDA) - whose objective is Membership Welfare within Southwark Community and home development in Sierra Leone.
I love Southwark and I want my London to be a fairer, more cohesive and open society.
