As the Cabinet Minister responsible for a government ministry, Hon. Dr. Sylvia Blyden is fully authorised to request for a service passport to be issued to anyone traveling overseas on an official government delegation from her ministry if she believes it is pertinent to do so. She enjoys that discretion.
She used correct procedures to formally request for relevant members of her government delegation to be issued with government service passports. They are traveling in the service of Sierra Leone government.
The people making noise over this issue are just idle and full of envy. Some of them might believe they and the Honourable Minister are on the same level. They don't realize that they are ordinary citizens whilst she is a sitting member of the highest executive body in Sierra Leone: The ministerial cabinet. Detractors need to check their hate before they wreck their hearts.
Infact, their torment is needless. Let them relax. Life is short. Don't stress it on Hate. See you all soon. For now, see me signing off from Geneva, Switzerland with much love to all my compatriots back home.
