Sierra Leone: What Brian Gilpin and his Mammy Cuss Folks had wanted
As of October 1st 2014, I effectively resigned my position as Special Executive Assistant to the President. On Tuesday 30th September 2014, I had explained to His Excellency the President during a closed door meeting, as to why I had to resign. It was a calm and reasoned conversation. However, His Excellency firmly refused to accept my resignation. He instead asked me to wait until he returned from London that weekend. He had been slated to fly out the next day October 1st 2014 which was actually my birthday. Although my resignation was rejected by the President, there was no unpleasantness in that meeting. It was more like a brother-sister talk. Infact, before I left his office, he handed over my birthday present to me.

Treating Sierra Leone with Levity: The Case of Fake Ebola Numbers under our International Partners' Eyes
Emergency Operations Center structure created by the President needs an URGENT review because it appears the international partners thereon like the way Sierra Leone is being short-changed with false statistics! They like the way we are reporting figures that make us look like foolish Africans in a Banana Republic! No wonder we are being treated with such levity that, according to Abdulai Bayraytay, “the British” will send us a rotten aircraft to fly our sitting President out of Sierra Leone... One must also thank the Almighty that the aircraft did not develop these technical problems whilst up in the air but when it tried to take off. Can you imagine if the plane's computers had failed whilst in mid-air? This is why one must wonder how safe really is our beloved President? Is our President safe? What kind of system is really being operated around our beloved President Koroma? Is it a functional system or a malfunctioning one? Food for thought!

Sierra Leone Investigative Newspaper rejects Bogus Allegations against Koroma, George Soros, Bill & Melinda Gates
Before she came to Sierra Leone from America to work at State House as a presidential adviser on health, Miatta Kargbo was “groomed” by a major multi-billion dollars Pharmaceutical company known as Eli LILLY. According to sources, she was “trained and groomed for 15 years” by Eli LILLY to join the company’s senior management for many years. Miatta Kargbo's position at Eli LILLY was a vaguely described “analyst”. Whilst working at State House, Miatta Kargbo still had her full-time job employment at Eli LILLY drugs pharmaceuticals from where she had merely “taken a leave of absence”. From State House, she was appointed as Health Minister but it is not clear if she is still on the employee roll of Eli LILLY. More on Miatta Kargbo when we finish ongoing investigations into the strategic connections between various pharmaceutical companies, an over one hundred million dollars Department of Defense contract & the development of an Ebola drug by a company named TEKMIRA PHARMACEUTICALS which now needs clinical testing of TKM-Ebola drug on humans infected with Ebola virus.

Consolidating The Values of Change, Continuity, Diversity and Innovation
When it comes to the very important matter of ‘‘innovation’’ in the world of education, in postmodern times, the concept is reduced to nothing other than mere nuances. Why? Sometimes, the concept rests firmly on the critical threats of contesting discourses and discourse analyses.

Sierra Leone Society Enjoys Excellent Religious & Political Tolerance
June 10th 2014: Sierra Leone is such a blessed country. Currently, we enjoy religious and political tolerance that is second to none. Honest! In celebration of such tolerance, for tonight I am laying down my ongoing critical pen to extend heartiest congratulations to my dear adopted brother and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Sylvanus Koroma Jnr. (aka WHAT-A-MAN).

Ebola and the 'SEA' - SETTING THE RECORDS STRAIGHT & OTHER POINTS
Truthfully speaking, if the Sensitization had worked, we would not have the Health Minister Miatta Kargbo making the astounding confirmation of Abdul Fonti’s claims that residents genuinely believed, they would be killed in Kenema. Until I read the COCORIOKO interview of the Health Minister Miatta Kargbo confirming that Abdul Fonti was correct in that aspect of his report, I had thought Fonti exaggerated the claims that residents believed they would be killed if they are taken to Kenema. The health minister’s interview is AMAZING on many fronts!!! In it, the failure of the ministry’s sensitisation efforts comes out so glaringly. Let me also say thanks to Dr. Gbakima for acknowledging he was one of those who “sensitised” our people. He is a brave and courageous man to acknowledge he was a part of GLARING FAILURE OF SENSITISATION.

Sierra Leone Politics : APC Party & State House Website Run By “Professionals”
I was a member of the main opposition Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) for many years and rose through the ranks to become one of its district chairmen. After 2011 SLPP convention, I observed the abrasive atmosphere which took over SLPP like uncurable Ebola virus. I advised myself to quit SLPP and join APC. I was amongst the first ‘big fish’ to join APC. I wrote my resignation letter in red ink.
