TRIBUTE TO DR. SHIEK OMAR KHAN ON BEHALF OF THE FREETOWN CITY COUNCIL, THE DISTRICT HEALTH MEDIAL  TEAM (DHMT), SECONDARY HOSPITALS AND THE CITIZENRY OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF FREETOWN.

TUESDAY 29TH JULY 2014 IS A DAY TO REMEMBER WITH MUCH DISPLEASURE. IT IS THE DAY THE COUNTRY MOURNS THE PASSING FROM TIME TO ETERNITY OF A REMARKABLE, VIBRANT, DEVOTED AND ILLUSTRIOUS SON OF THE SOIL.

 

DR. SHEIK UMAR KHAN; THE EPITOME OF AUTHORITY IN THE FIGHT AGAINST THE DEADLY EBOLA VIRUS WAS BORN 39 YEARS AGO, LIVED A SHORT LIFE BY LAYING HIS LIFE ON THE LINE TO SAVE HIS COUNTRYMEN. HYMN WRITER CHARLES WESLEY IN HIS HYMN, A CHARGE TO KEEP, WROTE, A CHARGE TO KEEP I HAVE, A GOD TO GLORIFY; A NEVER DYING SOUL TO SAVE AND FIT IT FOR THE SKY. TO SERVE THE PRESENT AGE, MY CALLING TO FULFILL, O MAY IT ALL MY POWERS ENGAGE TO DO MY MASTERS WILL. INDEED, DR. OMAR KHAN SERVED THE PRESENT AGE WITH THE ZEAL AND ENTHUSIASM DESERVED. HE FULFILLED HIS CALLING TO SERVE HUMANITY IN BEING IN THE MEDICAL FIELD. HE DIED SERVING HUMANITY GIVING .HIS LIFE, AND NOT COUNTING THE COSTS AS THE BIBLE SAYS.


Mayor Bode Gibson

 

WE ARE SORRY TO LOSE YOU DR. KHAN BUT WE DO HOPE THAT BY YOUR DEATH PEOPLE MAY BE MORE AWARE OF THE EXISTENCE OF EBOLA AND ALLAH MAY RAISE ANOTHER FIGHTER TO TAKE UP FROM WHERE YOU HAVE LEFT.

 

THE FREETOWN CITY COUNCIL ALSO WISHES TO THANK ALL THE DOCTORS AND NURSES WHO HAVE RELENTLESSLY FOUGHT AGAINST THE EBOLA VIRUS MAY YOU BE ENTERNALLY BLESSED FOR YOUR EFFORTS.

 

COUNCIL ALSO WISHES TO SYMPATHISE WITH ALL FAMILIES AND FRIENDS WHO  HAVE LOST LOVED ONES AS A RESULT OF THE EBOLA OUTBREAK. MAY GOD GRANT ALL DECEASED ETERNAL REST.

 

ON BEHALF OF THE CITIZENRY OF THE MUNICIPALITY OF FREETOWN AND INDEED THE NATION, THE FREETOWN CITY COUNCIL EXTENDS HEARTFELT CONDOLENCES TO THE BEREAVED FAMILIES, THE GOVERNMENT AND PEOPLE OF SIERRA LEONE AND INDEED THE WHOLE OF THE MEDICAL PROFESSION IN SIERRA LEONE AND THE WORLD AT LARGE.

 

MAY THE ALMIGHTY GRANT ETERNAL REST IN ALJANAH TO DR. UMAR KHAN AND ALL OUR OTHER DECEASED COMPATRIOTS.
