Pee Cee & Sons in Partnership With Government to Invest in Food Scarcity

By Pastor Mohamed Sesay 

Past Saturday, the Vice President of Sierra Leone, Dr Juldeh Jalloh together with the CEO of Pee Cee and Sons, Mr Mahesh Choithram Nandwani, in line with HE President Bio’s vision for government to work with the private sector to alleviate poverty from this country, went to Kaffu Bullom Chiefdom where Pee Cee and Sons are currently engaged in large scale farming.

Pee Cee and Sons which has been investing in this country for over 60 years, is working in line with the government to do large-scale farming in the country so much so that there will be enough to go round and to even export abroad which in essence will create jobs for Sierra Leoneans.

The two personalities met at Soktharr and Makassa towns in the Kaffu Bullom Chiefdom, Port Loko District north of Sierra Leone, where Pee Cee and Sons have acquired 510 acres of farmland to grow various types of cash crops.

According to the CEO and Proprietor of Pee Cee and Sons, Mr Mahesh Choithram Nandwani, the intended purpose is to make sure that crops are grown are processed in this country which case will lead to the fall of certain commodities which are costing a lot to bring to this country. 

Mr Nandwani told his audience during the showcasing of the project, that when things take off unexpected scenarios like the Ukrain/Russia war, will not affect the availability and the prices of commodities since they will be available in the country. 

Vice President Dr Juldeh Jalloh applauded the move of Pee Cee and Sons and promised that government will continue to work with the private sector to ensure that there is food sufficiency in the country for all. 

President Bio in his manifesto has said that his government will always work with the private sector in the development of the country. 

Pee Cee and Sons are currently employing over a thousand Sierra Leoneans in its various outlets scattered all over the country.
