Former Sports Minister, Paul Mohamed Kamara has said that he has huge respect for Julius Maada Bio of the opposition SLPP party.

He made this statement on SLBC TV Wednesday 4th shortly after declaring for the Flagbearer of the ruling APC in a crowded room of other aspirants.

Paul admits working under Bio in the junta NPRC government, adding also that he (Bio) used to encourage him for doing well even before he was shot by some soldiers.

“Bio has grown. He has been Vice Chairman of the NPRC and later Chairman. I have huge respect for him,” Kamara maintained.

Paul claimed he is an unsoiled politician and the only person with the integrity to rule Sierra Leone.

This, he said, was because he had served as Minister of Lands without taking any land for himself.

“I am proud of my record at the Ministry of Sports. I raised my hands for Isha Johansen, but I did not vote for her. However, I am proud of her achievement in CAF and FIFA,” Kamara explained.

He said however that he is the leader of all the young people in Sierra Leone, as according to him, he has been with them in the struggle times and is able to transform them.
