SLFA PRESIDENT MADAM ISHA JOHANSEN WITHDRAWS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDACY AHEAD OF SLFA EXECUTIVE ELECTIONS

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE FROM SLFA
PRESIDENT
SLFA PRESIDENCY CANDIDATURE
WITHDRAWAL

Dear football family,
Dear friends,
Dear Sierra Leoneans,

01 June 2021
As a recently elected FIFA Council Member, I will be required to play a higher level and more active role as a
Global Ambassador for football and for FIFA.

Building on several years of experience in using football as a tool for change, development, peace and unification, I will be working closely with FIFA in diverse areas including football as a force to unify and bring peace, women in football leadership and promoting women's football. Additionally, I will continue acting as
an ambassador for Africa and Sierra Leone in FIFA and for FIFA in Sierra Leone

My new role will require extensive global travelling and consequently increased demands on my time. After
much deliberation and soul searching, it is with sadness that I have decided to announce the withdrawal of my candidacy for President in the up-coming Sierra Leone Football Association elections.

I hereby offer the new SLFA Executive and Staff my best wishes for the future and assure my full support from within FIFA.

I want to thank all of my supporters and well-wishers from across the country for their unwavering loyalty, integrity and for the years of dedication to Our cause and vision in changing Our narrative and raising the game of football in Sierra Leone

Whilst I pride myself in the belief that I have played a significant role in restoring integrity, compliance and good governance in our nation's football, my fervent prayer is that we do not lose what we fought so hard to build.

As long as we continue to respect the rules of compliance and good governance, I pledge to expend every effort to ensure the delivery of football development programmes and infrastructure in Sierra Leone, to the deserved benefit of our children and our Nation.

I remain your mother, sister and friend in football.

Better Together!

SL-Guinea Border reopens

Sierra Leone - Guinea Border reopened Today

Sierra Leone, Guinea Sign Communique, Commit to Mutual Security, Public Health and Socio-Economic Interests

Conakry, Republic of Guinea, Tuesday 16 February 2021 – His Excellency President Dr Julius Maada Bio has concluded his 2-day working visit to Conakry where the two countries committed to reopening on Thursday 18 Feb the land border that was closed since early last year due to COVID-19.
The communique states that: “Based on mutual reassurances and enhanced mutual confidence…the President of the Republic of Guinea Professor Alpha Conde has reviewed the security situation in his country and has agreed to reopen its borders with the Republic of Sierra Leone effective from Thursday 18 February 2021 at 8:00 hours GMT”.
“The two leaders also agreed to reactivate the Joint Technical Committee on Yenga, which shall commence sittings in Nongowa, on 3 March 2021. They also agreed to implement the agreement to Joint Border Patrols along the common border areas from 5 March 2021,” the document reads, adding that the two foreign ministers would immediately restart the holding of the Joint Commission of Cooperation meetings between the two countries.
The communique also contains a raft of bilateral agreements to cooperate with each other on security, defence, public health, ICT, mining, justice, transport, private investments, and cultural exchanges. The Heads of State further pledged to use their good offices to provide the necessary capacity to address the current and emerging public health emergency such as COVID-19 and EBOLA in the two countries.
“The two Heads of State expressed their satisfaction with the strategies by the two countries in the COVID-19 pandemic and reaffirmed their determination to coordinate their efforts in obtaining vaccines for their respective populations,” the document reads.
At the subregional level, President Bio and President Conde welcomed the latest decisions for the return of Mali to constitutional order, in accordance with the provisions of ECOWAS Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance and reiterated their continental commitment to always defend the African interest.
“They also welcomed the decision of the African Union Heads of State and Government for launching the first operational stage of the African Continental Free Trade Area Agreement…and commended the implementation of the 2063 agenda and other reforms initiated at the African Union,” the communique adds.
President Bio, whose government delegation also included deputy leader of the main opposition All People’s Congress in Parliament, Alhaji Ibrahim Ben Kargbo and former APC Minister of Public Affairs, Information and later Mines, Alhaji Alpha Sahid Bakar Kanu, will return today Tuesday 16 February 2021.

chericoco.

I think Honorable Chernor Maju Bah aka Chericoco have a point here. Lets know what you think.

'CHERICOCO' SHOCKED ABOUT THE FIRST SHIPMENT OF #IRONORE BY #KINGHOMINING.

The leader of the opposition in Parliament, Hon. Chernor Maju Bah (Chericoco), told the speaker of Parliament and colleagues, that he was shocked, when he read the report from #reuters, that the first shipment of iron ore by Kinghor Mining took place last Friday.

"There is no way to ship iron ore without having an agreement ratified by this house. It shouldn't happen. We don't have the details. We don't know the quantity. We don't know the conditions in which they will take over," says Chericoco.

Addressing the speaker, Hon. Chernor M Bah said, "They have not mined a single ore, yet still they've exported ore. On what conditions, Mister Speaker?" he asks.

The issues raised by Chericoco are very important, to be fair. I am happy that we have started exporting iron ore again, that can only help boost the economy. However, we need to know the details.

He is urging the speaker to get the minister of mines to come to the house to explain to them the terms & conditions entered so far.

"...they must stop all shipment until we get an agreement ratified by this house. It is unacceptable, " he said.

It's only fair to invite the Minister of Mines to explain to parliament what the Honourable member is asking.

What do you think?

Covid19 measures

COVID19 PANDEMIC GUIDELINES REINTRODUCED TO STOP THE SPREAD.

Sierra Leone has introduced a raft of measures in response to the rise in new Covid19 cases. Effective Monday 25 January – and lasting initially for two weeks – there will be a 10pm to 05:00am curfew, a weekend ban on restaurants and bars, no movement into and out of the Western Area (where the capital city and epicenter is) except for essential travelers who will require an electronic pass subject to a NEGATIVE Covid19 test result. It is not clear who pays for those tests. There is also a pledge to fully implement the mandatory wearing of face masks in public buildings and public transport. -Umaru Fofana
