The historic visit of His Excellency the President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone to the White House was a resounding success. However, it was not only President Obama who was proud to host the APC leader cum President of Sierra Leone.

 

Head of International Monetary Fund (IMF), Ms. Christine Lagarde, also invited President Koroma to the IMF headquarters at Washington DC where she expressed visible, audible pleasure with the economic management skills of APC-led Sierra Leone government.

 

Madam Lagardes IMF is in the middle of oversight measures on European nations like Cyprus that have taken severe economic downturns.

 

President Ernest Koroma & IMFs Christine Lagarde in a warm handshake last week in Washington DC. Madam Lagarde had just walked down from her offices to smilingly welcome Ernest Bai Koroma as he stepped out of his vehicle at frontage of the IMF headquarters; In the background are the national flags of all Nations of the world flying in front of the IMF headquarters.

 

The no-nonsense, female Managing Director of the IMF, openly expressed that her meeting with President Koroma last week was a breath of fresh air after days of IMF involvement in tumultuous European economic crisis. She was covered in smiles throughout the visit.

 

Indeed, President Koroma continues to amaze his neighbours like President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf as well as leaders located far away like President Obama or the IMFs Christine Lagarde.

 

No matter political opinions, honest citizens of Sierra Leone will readily accept that in midst of global economic crisis hitting all over, Sierra Leone and the APC leader shine bright as success stories in management of an economy.

 

See below for pictorials which all speak for themselves.

There is nothing really to smile of when one discusses the state of finances of many E.U. countries. This is unlike Sierra Leones economic management success which brings out the smiles in many.
