OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT

PRESS REPORT

             PRESIDENT KOROMA CONGRATULATES US         
PRESIDENT-ELECT BARACK OBAMA


President Ernest Bai Koroma today sent a congratulatory message to the President-elect of the United States of America, Barack Obama, the African-American Senator from Illinois, on his historic election to the White House, apparently the most powerful office in the world.


“By their show of votes at the polls, the people of America have clearly spoken. You have emerged as a symbol of hope to America and the world. Through your election as President of the United States, you have inherited the mantle of responsibility and the enormous challenge of leading the greatest democracy in the world,” the message read.


“The Government and people of Sierra Leone join me in wishing you a prosperous tenure of office and we look forward to building a strong working relationship,” it continued.


President Koroma went further to mention issues of wider international dimension:


“In my capacity as Chairman of the Committee of Ten of the African Union on UN Reform, I look forward to working with your administration in reforming the United Nations, as that institution moves into intergovernmental negotiations.”


“Mr. President, please accept my congratulations on behalf of the Government and people of the Republic of Sierra Leone,” the message concluded.
