The Mamadee Sesay Campaign
Fourteen Points Platform

By: Musa Fofana, Chief Public Affair,
Atlanta, GA
June 27, 2009
As presidential candidate, the responsibility for the overall organization and management of my campaign lies under my leadership. I therefore want to make sure that we have clearly defined expectations for ourselves and for those we want to lead.
One way I think we can achieve success is to make sure we set our goals and specify how we intend to achieve those goals in the short and long run. In so doing, we need to come out with a platform that will set the tone of our campaign, shows the motivation and enthusiasm of my candidacy as well as excite our supporters
As an organization still in its infancy, I sincerely believe that what lies behind us is far lesser than what lies ahead of us. We however cannot tap into that potential blindly; we need a guide to lead us through. Read detail
