The Ministry of Information and Communication on Saturday 22nd November 2008 made another milestone in the area of communication. In keeping with President Ernest Bai Koromaís vision to re-brand Sierra Leone, the ministry collaborated with communities in the Northern Province to launch a community radio station called ĎRadio Okentuní or ĎWe Yoneí radio station in a cheerful and jubilant occasion at Kamakwe, in the Sella Limba Chiefdom, Bombali District.

Mohamed D. Koroma: Youthful Minister, Youthful Activities

In attendance at the auspicious launch were the Acting Transport and Aviation Minister, Mohamed Alieu Pat-Sowe, who represented President Koroma, the youthful and no- nonsense Deputy Minister of Information and Communication, Mohamed Daudis Koroma, the All Peopleís Congress (APC) Scribe, Victor Foh, Acting Internal Affairs Minister, Raymond Kamara, APC Members of Parliament, Rev. Marie Yansaneh and Marie M. Conteh-Jalloh among other highly placed personalities.

The launching also brought together locals of Sander Loko, Sella Limba, Madina and Sander Chendaraing who graced the ceremony in their hundreds with pomp, pageantry and jubilations.

In his short but eloquent statement that was intermittently met with thunderous applause, the Deputy Minister of Information and Communication, Mohamed D. Koroma assured residents of the chiefdom that the radio is the communityís property. He urged them to refrain from using the radio station for political gains, while advising them to use it to develop their different communities through the dissemination of developmentally oriented information.

He admonished the broadcasters to strictly adhere to the code of practice of the Independent Media Commission (IMC). "Through hard work and dedication, we have been able to transform the Information and Communication Ministry from the talking drum it used to be to a result oriented Ministry," Minister Koroma told the locals. He assured that his ministry will not relent in the execution of its aims and objectives as he put it "Ministers are not talkers, we are doers."
