Mr. Mohamed D. Koroma wasted no time, as usual, in alerting the local media of the "erroneous" and "sabotaging" statements contained in the report on maternal mortality launched by Amnesty International.
He was very immediate to highlight the strides of the Health and Sanitation Ministry in reducing maternal deaths in the country, whilst exposing the report of Amnesty International as one with archaic data and not in the interest of the people of Sierra Leone.
Although most Sierra Leoneans believe in the "better late than never" adage, it took the Ministry good three days to come out with an official statement on the issue.
Minister Mohamed D. Koromaís rapid response to issues of national importance is the main reason why the Awareness Times Newspaper is always at the forefront of following up and reporting on his laudable activities.
This newspaper is quick to expose non performers and also always endeavor to pick the good among the bad fishes.
Minister Koroma deserves to be lauded for his rapid responses in shutting down fake medical institutions, destruction of expired Heineken beer, unannounced on-the-spot visits to hospitals and medical centers around the country, exposing corrupt health officials, aiding citizens in distress situations, and his demonstration of devotion to his general assignments as Deputy Minister of Health and Sanitation.
The Awareness Times will continue to praise sing the Deputy Health and Sanitation Minister, in order to ginger him up to continue his developmental strides in the interest of Sierra Leone. Keep it up Mr. Deputy Health and Sanitation Minister.
Also, it should be noted that the Awareness Times Newspaper is not an anti-government newspaper, as certain people are trying to make believe. The Awareness Times is an independent newspaper that believes in the tenets of democracy and good governance. As such, the uncompromising stances of this newspaper in protecting the aforesaid doctrines should not be misrepresented to mean anti-government stances.
If the Awareness Times is an anti-government newspaper, why is this newspaper always publishing the laudable strides of government functionaries like Mohamed D. Koroma, Fisheries and Marine Resources Minister Haja Afsatu Kabba, First Lady Mrs. Sia Nyama Koroma, and even President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma?
