In Sierra Leone, President Koroma Hailed at Central Mosque

His Excellency President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma is loved by the people of Sierra Leone, devoid of tribe, religion and political affiliations. This was again visible on Friday 6th September during Jummah prayers held to mark the beginning of the 2013/2014 Judicial Year at the Central Mosque at Wilberforce Street in Freetown.

 

President Koroma attended the event as a guest of honour and after prayers the First Gentleman was ‘mobbed’ by fellow worshipers and passers-by who despite the thundering rain, patiently crowded at the entrance of the mosque waiting anxiously on the president to step out of the mosque in order to hail him and see if they could shake his hands.


Koroma Steps Out into ‘Friendly Mob’


People were coming from all four corners of the mosque to not just catch a glimpse of the Sierra Leonean leader but  to doggedly ensure they actually shook hands with him.

 

The ever-tolerant president smilingly and willingly shook hands with many, many of the hundreds of admirers which exercise then kept his security and bodyguards on their toes fighting to ensure the comfort of the President.

 

Earlier, addressing Muslims inside the Mosque, President Koroma called on them to continue praying for Sierra Leone. He said government will make all efforts to ensure that Sierra Leone is transformed and developed but that without God’s divine intervention, there will be no success in achieving this goal.

 

He advised the worshipers to join him in making the Agenda for Prosperity a success story for Sierra Leone and its people, whilst noting that he will do his best, his ministers will do their best but without the support of the ordinary man, Sierra Leone will never see its way forward.


Muslim leaders also offered prayers for President Ernest Koroma, his ministers and all other authorities responsible for development of Sierra Leone. They assured of their continued support to the President’s development strides and said they will also continue to remember their leaders and Sierra Leone first in their daily prayers.
