Kaifala Marah, the APC Flagbearer is the Man with the Midas Touch
By a press release (02/04/17)
As the APC party flag-bearer draws nearer, the one name that continues to be bandied around in Sierra Leone is erudite Dr. Kaifala Marah.
As the first ever State House Chief of Staff in Freetown, Dr. Kaifala Marah (pictured) has made governance easy for President Ernest Bai Koroma through policy enhancement and coordination of intra government activities.
He provided collaborative links between Ministries, Departments and Agencies to implement the country's national development strategies Agenda for Change and Agenda for Prosperity.
To ensure continuity and efficiency in delivering future national plans, Dr. Marah strengthened the technical arm of the Presidency and established the Strategic Policy Unit (SPU).
He also sstablished the Public Private Partnership (PPP) Unit to support government's capital investments projects and resuscitated the Civil Service Training College that closed for over 40 years.
With coordination being one of the major challenges in the implementation of national development agendas, under his tenure, a Coordination Handbook was developed for local councils.
As the former Bank Governor, a position he recently resigned from for the APC flag-bearer post, Dr. Kaifala Marah has a proven track record for high political office.
