A Presidential Preface to “Sierra Leone: The Turn Around: Three Years of Transformative Achievements by The Ernest Koroma Government”,
Nov 12, 2010, 17:11



On assumption of office in September 2007, I promised a progressive turn around for Sierra Leone in three years. I articulated my vision and firmed up the people's aspirations for this turnaround in 'An Agenda for Change.'

The Agenda for Change prioritizes four key areas: enhancing national electricity, develop­ing the national transportation network, enhancing productivity in agriculture and fisheries, and sustaining human development - health and education. September 17, 2010 is the third anniversary of my assumption of office.

As an accountable, democratic and transparent administration, my Government is in this document reporting on the positive transformations we have engendered in the country since our assumption of office three years ago.

My Government is not only about intentions, it is about actions - because it is at the level of actions and implementation that we create positive impact for the people of this land that we love.

We stated our intentions in the Agenda for Change, and our focus is now on successful implementation. From agriculture to roads, energy, health, education, investment, mineral resources, decentralization, job creation and other sectors, transformative action is now vis­ible all over the country.

His Excellency Dr Ernest Bai Koroma
