Greetings Sierra Leoneans & Friends of Sierra Leone. This update is Worth Sharing.  At the Technical Consultations of the International Ebola Recovery Conference, there has been resounding and recurrent huge praises by various speakers for the leadership style of President Koroma in ensuring Transparency and Accountability in Sierra Leones fight against Ebola. For example, H.E. Dr. Marshall Elliott CBE, Director of the United Kingdoms Joint Inter-Agency Task Force on Ebola was quite effusive in his praises of President Koroma as a very transparent and accountable leader in the fight against Ebola. Dr. Elliott unabashedly spoke the position of the United Kingdom to be one of PRIDE in President Koroma insofar as accountability and transparency in fighting Ebola.


Dr. Elliott took his time to particularly detail and outline to the conference, many of the strategies of President Koroma that saw our great President personally overseeing the efforts to ensure transparency and accountability were reinforced in the management of funds meant for fighting Ebola.

 

Most interestingly is that Dr. Elliott strongly welcomed the spoken assurance from President Johnson-Sirleafs government that the Liberian President will be immediately emulating the transparent & accountable leadership of President Ernest Koroma in her own fight against Ebola.



All Patriots will agree with me that these praises of His Excellencys leadership are well deserved.

 

Only a very clean & accountable leader will be bold enough to order an Audit in midstream of his officials fight against Ebola.

 

Only a transparent leader with nothing to hide will travel the entire country warning every level of citizenry against corruption in management of Ebola funds.

 

Meanwhile, Health Minister Dr. Abubakarr Fofanah has also just delivered a brilliant insight into Sierra Leones national health plans, progress to date and his views on how donors & partners can support the people of Sierra Leone. Of worthy note is that Dr. Fofanah who has impeccable academic and professional qualifications, has been appointed as Co-Chair of the World Summit on Medicine hosted in China last weekend.

 

PHOTO SHOWS: President with Cabinet Ministers at his hotel suite holding closed door deep discussions immediately on his arrival in New York on Wednesday July 8th 2015. They were deeply pondering on the impact that Ebola has caused especially with respect to derailing the aspirations of the people of Sierra Leone; whilst remaining hopeful that the Outbreak will soon end and the country can resume national development.


Sierra Leone is indeed facing difficult times but we also have much to be proud of. Thank you so much President Koroma for making us stand proud today at the United Nations with our heads and shoulders raised sky high.

 

May God Almighty bless our Transparent & Accountable leader as he leads our great Nation. Amen.

 

By Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden, an official member of the Sierra Leone Presidents delegation to the International Conference on Ebola Recovery at the United Nations Headquarters.
