As President Koroma Bags Another Award…”I will do more and more”…he says

As President Koroma Bags Another Award…”I will do more and more”…he says thumbnail

His Excellency President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma has challenged the Muslim community to do more in maintaining religious tolerance in Sierra Leone. He noted that the theme of the National Delegates’ Conference of the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs: “The role of Islamic Leaders in promoting Unity and Progress among Islamic Organisations/Associations in Sierra Leone,” is timely and well-conceived.

The President also said that the fact that Sierra Leone had been placed first for religious tolerance in the world is something to be proud of and jealously maintained. He noted that Sierra Leone will soon start sending our religious leaders to other countries plagued with religious intolerance to provide counsel for religious tolerance to prevail.

President Koroma used the metaphor of the house and the foundation that he had built a strong foundation for the construction of the house. He noted that anyone who comes after him in 2017, can only finish the house but will have nothing to do on the foundation, because he had constructed a very strong and durable foundation.

Delivering his statement, the Chief National Coordinator Alhaji Bobo Bah said that the conference was intended to foster unity, camaraderie and progress among the Muslim community all across the country. He called on all Muslims to vote resoundingly for President Ernest Bai Koroma to continue the good work he has started since 2007.

According to Hon. Alpha Abubakarr Sidique Kanu, who presided over the conference, President Ernest Bai Koroma is a believer rather than a Christian or Muslim. Sierra Leone is blessed because Allah has given us a President who is a believer. Little wonder Sierra Leone is number one for religious tolerance in the world, he said.

Alhaji Ayuba R. Sesay who spoke on behalf of the Principals of all Islamic schools in the country, the conditions of teachers and principals have hugely improved as a result of the salary increases provided by the government of President Ernest Bai Koroma more than any other government in the history of Sierra Leone.

Alhaji Mohamed Thaha Jalloh, President of the Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs paid glowing tribute to His Excellency Dr Ernest Bai Koroma for the remarkable work he has done for the past five years.

He went on to noted that President Koroma is a man of his word as he promised to deliver electricity in 100 days but delivered it in 90 days record time. Alhaji Thaha mentioned that most of the delegates only arrived this morning and came straight to Miatta Conference Center without even bordering to change clothes because the roads are good and tarmac.

He also observed that before now there used to be Alhaji Lungis and Abujas. Today, he said, there are no Alhaji Lungis and Abujas because through the astute, visionary and responsible leadership of President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma, Muslims can now travel to Mecca without let or hindrance or any form of inconvenience.

Haja Afsatu Kabbah who delivered a statement on behalf of the Women’s Representatives said the conference was meant to bring Muslims together as one voice, saying it’s always good to give praise where it’s due as man by nature was a political animal. She urged all Muslims to reelect President Koroma for a second term.
