On Wednesday 17th August 2016, Deputy Minister Hon. Neneh Rugiatu Turay has accompanied the African Union Commissioner for Social Affairs Dr. Mustapha Sidiki Kaloko, during his courtesy call to her boss, the Hon. Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden, Minister of Social Welfare, Gender and Children's Affairs.

 

As had been diligently planned several days prior, Hon. Neneh Turay took Dr. Kaloko to formally greet her boss, immediately after the Launching of the Campaign against Child Marriage in Sierra Leone which launching is the primary purpose why Dr. Kaloko is currently visiting Sierra Leone.

Tied up with other issues that warranted her simultaneous attention, the Honourable Minister was unable to attend the Launch but was however represented by her Deputy Minister at the launching.

 

Launched that morning in Freetown by her Ministry in collaboration with First Lady Sia Koroma, Hon. Dr. Sylvia Blyden described the campaign to end child marriage as being one of the key tools towards having the next generation enjoy true gender parity. She said when the girl child is allowed to attain the highest possible levels of education before going into marriage, she will become highly productive and be able to compete with men for any position.

 

 

Hon. Dr. Blyden therefore praised her deputy minister Hon. Neneh Turay whom she hailed as having been deeply involved in combating child marriage both locally and internationally prior to her appointment as her deputy. Hon. Blyden said she was very confident enough to therefore leave the planning for the program in the hands of Hon. Neneh Turay. As the Cabinet Minister in charge of the ministry, she affirmed that credit for the success of the launch was to be given to her deputy minister's able lead of the process and also to the First Lady.

 

Meanwhile, Hon. Blyden also discussed a variety of issues with the AU Commissioner including pertinent issues around Ebola Survivors.

 

Dr. Kaloko is due to return back to the AU in Ethiopia on Thursday 18th August 2016.
