A ceremony which both presidents lavishly praised the developmental strives of the other, saw His Excellency President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma of Sierra Leone on Monday 31st July, 2017, decorated his Ivorian counterpart, His Excellency Alassane Ouattara.

 

Known as the architects and the benchmarks of development in their respective countries, a joint press conference and decoration ceremony of President Alassane Ouattara took place at the Sierra Leone State House Conference Room after the bilateral meeting between the two leaders. The insignia was being conferred in recognition of President Ouattara’s contribution in strengthening excellent bilateral ties between Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast and his relentless efforts in fostering cooperation and collaboration at multilateral level within the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the African Union, and the Mano River Union (MRU).

The two leaders exchanged similar views on the further deepening of existing bilateral relations to promote the national priorities of the people of both countries.

 

President Ouattara, during his remarkable statement, paid tribute to the people of Sierra Leone for showing a high degree of resilience in the face of the unprecedented Ebola epidemic. Notwithstanding the distressing toll of the Ebola epidemic on the economy of Sierra Leone, he commended the people of Sierra Leone especially the leadership of President Ernest Bai Koroma for turning things around for the better.

President Ouattara expressed hope and confidence that the bilateral relations between the two countries would be strengthened to maximize benefits for the people of both nations.

 

He expressed his sincere gratitude and appreciation to President Koroma for his role in not only resolving the political impasse that ensued in Ivory Coast in the aftermath of his electoral victory, but also his personal contribution towards Ivory Coast’s membership of the United Nations Security Council for the period 2018/2019, for which he appealed to Sierra Leone for continued support at that level.

 

In broad and lovely smile, whilst appreciating his Ivorian counterpart, President Koroma said that Ivory Coast and Sierra Leone have strengthened bilateral ties to the next level as well as agreed on further deepening multilateral relations. He heaped praises to the leadership role of President Ouattara not just in Ivory Coast but also in the sub-region. According to President Koroma, “the basis for democracy is peace and security,” saying that his Ivorian counterpart has done a lot to bring peace to Ivory Coast.

 

The ceremony ended with the President Koroma presenting a portrait showing the old Fourah Bay College building, and the ceremony was graced by former Head of State, Valentine Strasser; former Vice President, Solomon Ekuma Berewa; Vice President Honourable Victor Bockarie Foh; government ministers, Members of Parliament and many others.
