Mayor of the Freetown Municipality has blamed government for not ‘recognizing the Freetown City Council, FCC, as a key local government structure in the fight against Ebola.’’

While unveiling the council’s plan to set up an emergency center for the Ebola disease during a press conference at the Cathedral Hall, Gloucester Street in Freetown, Mayor Frankly Bode Gibson claimed that since the outbreak they had utilized their own funds without any help from government.

Sources say Freetown City Council is bankrupt, and for now cannot execute its municipal functions.

They say FCC’s Chief Administrative Officer and other officials are looking at ways as to how they could raise funds to remedy the hundreds plus more of unsolved problems in the city of Freetown.

Our findings are that the City Mayor is reportedly having sleepless night, lobbying state functionaries including Non Governmental Organizations comes to their aid to save their necks from what is perceived as ineptitude on their side.
