Yesterday 6th March, 2021 the Bo District Students Alliance was officially launched in Bo at Olive’s Catering Service, Bar and Restaurant on 61 Bo Taima Highway. The occasion was graced by key stakeholders, school representatives, media representatives and members of BoDSA.

In his keynote address, Ing. Joshua Kamanda advised members of BoDSA to love one another, to be selfless and to forgive. He assured them of his continuous support whenever they call on him to push the organisation forward.

Alhaji Dyfan, lecturer at Njala University, talked about student unionism and respect among students.
“You should not have superiority amongst your colleagues. Don’t see others who do not go to Fourah Bay College as not educated or not important. You should consolidate yourself,” he said.

The Chairperson of the launching ceremony, Commissioner Patricia Ganda, the Manager of Star Radio, stated that many people do not give back to society, but she said BoDSA has set a bright example of giving back to society, and she encouraged others to give their utmost support to the organisation.

BoDSA PRO, Mohamed Cedric Kamara highlighted some of the activities the organisation intend undertaking and these are: promoting free quality education in Bo District, implementing leadership training programs for secondary school pupils and university students, instituting BoDSA in all university campuses in Sierra Leone, giving scholarships to hardworking students and building schools in Bo District.

Giving his speech, the President of BoDSA, Tamba S. Ngayenga, said Bo District was once known for academic excellence in public examination but in recent years the district was going backward in terms of education. Hence, the need for an organisation like BoDSA to resuscitate the dying glory of academia in the district.

The organisation was officially launched by Ing. Joshua Kamanda who unveiled the BoDSA.
