Julius Maada Bio has always been a peaceful man. From our formative years, he was always peaceful among his peers; which is what influenced his joining the military, to ensure the people of Sierra Leone enjoy peace at all times. Even when that peace was interrupted by the rebels; he never wavered in his commitment to the people of Sierra Leone. And while that commitment was tested by the rebels, Bio and his colleagues stood in defense of their country. We lost some of our peers to the war. May they rest in Perfect Peace. Every day that Bio promotes peace, he is honoring the lives lost in defense of Sierra Leone; his military comrades and those civilians who lost their lives to the war. Julius Maada Bio is not on this journey to return Sierra Leone to true democracy alone. He is on this journey with the spirits of his comrades, those with whom he was in arms to defend the motherland, Sierra Leone, the land that we love and cherish. Maada, we are with you on this journey. Victory for the people of Sierra Leone is sure at hand. We admire your resilience and continued sacrifice for Sierra Leone.
Good luck and may God grant you victory.
