When questioned about his confidence in winning the upcoming Presidential elections, considering his late declaration of intent, Margai expressed great hopefulness.

“Based on what we hear from social media, and so on, I believe that the people of Sierra Leone, this time, are going to vote thoughtfully, not impulsively. So, I am very hopeful, not just hopeful” .He asserted
