Message From Dr. Kaifala Marah

Dear all


It is my wish for the general public to know that the article published today, 20th July 2016 in the Satellite Newspaper, titled, "APC Flag Bearer Race...Dr. Kaifala Marah Declares" is untrue and misleading.

 

It must be noted that the current challenges facing  Sierra Leone, like other commodity exporting countries, demand focus and commitment, especially from those of us in financial and monetary policy making positions. The reality must not be lost that when Ebola struck, Sierra Leone's growth status shifted from the club of fastest growing economies in the world to that of negative growth of -21 percent in 2015, with encouraging signs of 4 percent recovery this year.

 

In addition, we continue to experience low receipts from primary commodities in particular iron ore, among others. Also, we must not forget that the suspension of operations by the then African Minerals and London Mining companies has had negative lingering effects on the economy, although Shandong has resumed operations. The impact of Ebola on our economy is an experience we are hoping to put behind us as we look forward to a successful recovery, sooner.

 

In view of the above, I believe what is needed right now is for every Sierra Leonean to rally behind the Government's Post-Ebola Recovery Programme for the good of our country. We lost a lot in our fight against Ebola, and should be redoubling our efforts to put our economy back on track.

 

My being Governor of the Bank of Sierra Leone is also a personal call to focus on critical issues such as financial and monetary stability.

 

At this point therefore, I strongly believe that I would sustain my relevance to the country by doing my job. Sierra Leone is taller than I am and so is the national interest ever greater.


With best wishes

Kaifala Marah
