This week, I am on a mission to reach out to our people in other parts of the country. I want to hear their views and how my office as the Ombudsman can support them seek justice and safeguard their human rights.
|Ombudsman M. Nicol-Wilson
I am on a familiarisation visits to our regional offices in Kenema, Bo and Makeni to assess their strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in championing administrative justice and human rights. My report will feed into a 100 Days Plan of Action, which will give the Ombudsman a new direction in advancing the cause or justice and Human Rights.
I have a special responsibility to serve the people of Sierra Leone from all walks of life and from all regions including the West, East, North and South. I believe Freetown alone is not Sierra Leone, hence the need to make justice and human rights accessible to everyone in the country regardless of where they live.
Earlier on my way to Kenema, I met with Paramount chief Bumbolie of Koya Chiefdom in Masiaka and his community people who warmly welcomed me and wished me well in my tour of the provinces (see photo with the Chief and the Ombudsman’s Executive Secretary, Dr Sheku Conteh).
I am here with my great team from the Office of the Ombudsman: the Executive Secretary, Principal Investigations Officer, Public Relations Officer...
I will keep you posted as I travel across the country.
