Dr. Sylvia Blyden yesterday Sunday July 5th 2015 flew out of Sierra Leone heading for New York. Before flying out, she posted the following on Facebook last weekend:
Saturday July 4th 2015: I hereby confirm that the list published this morning from an online TV outlet is correct insofar as my presence thereon. I confirm that I have been invited from Awareness Times Newspaper by His Excellency President Koroma to accompany him as part of his official presidential delegation to the United Nations International Ebola Recovery Conference in New York next week. I will be flying out of Sierra Leone early next week. My trip is fully funded by State House this time.
And now to the burning question on many lips: Does this mean I am on my way back to working for the President at State House? Maybe yes and maybe no.
On this occasion, I will be covering as a journalist from an independent newspaper whose insights into the Ebola outbreak are well recognized.
Good Day to you all.
