The former Vice President of Sierra Leone, Solomon Ekuma Berewa (popularly called Solo-B by his supporters) yesterday night flew out of Sierra Leone on board the Astraeus Airlines flight bound for Great Britain where he is to take up an academic position as a Senior Visiting Research Fellow at one of the top Universities in the United Kingdom.

Speaking exclusively to Awareness Times Newspaper, at the Presidential Lounge of the Lungi International Airport, Solomon Berewa explained that he would spend a short time in London before proceeding to take up his tenure ship at the Department of Peace Studies of the University of Bradford.

"It is a short academic tenure during which I will be engaged in public speaking and academic research as well as conducting a few academic lectures but my main focus is going to be on utilizing the world class facilities of the University of Bradford to conduct extensive research."

Asked how long he would be out of Sierra Leone for, Mr. Berewa replied that his tenure was quite open to him.

"It is fairly open," he replied explaining that he would be specifically looking into Conflict Resolution and Peace Building studies with particular reference to Sierra Leone.

Pressed further about what exact topic he would be researching into, he assured that he would be conducting research and developing academic treaties (writings) on the administration of Sierra Leone from 1996 to the just concluded elections.

"There will be a lot of objectivity in my writings. I will look at the issue from an academic aspect and not from a political viewpoint," Berewa assured.

"I will be assessing all scenarios as well as the dramatis personae [local actors] involved in that period under review," Berewa continued.

According to him, the most important reason why Mr. Berewa wants to pen down his writing was to "draw conclusions for the edification of future generations".

Mr. Berewa also used the opportunity to extend through this newspaper, further sentiments of his best wishes to all his supporters around the country and assured them that he would be in constant touch with news from Sierra Leone during his tenure at the University of Bradford.

In tomorrow’s edition, read about why former President Tejan Kabbah will be spending Christmas out of Sierra Leone this year in a bid to undertake a prestigious mission that can only add laurels to his cap.
