Global Education Summit

President Bio Addresses Global Education Summit in UK

Thursday 29 July 2021 - His Excellency President Dr Julius Maada Bio today addressed the Global Education Summit, the biggest of such events to encourage donors to raise $5 billion in the next 5 years, along with commitments from partner countries on domestic financing for education.

The President is one of only four African leaders participating in the 2021 Global Education Summit: Financing GPE 2021-2025 being co-hosted today by the President of Kenya, Uhuru Kenyatta and the UK Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.

β€œI want to start off by saying that access to quality education is a fundamental human right. Besides, my government, has already stated the human capital development piece of it. But also, we want to make sure that human capital development is inclusive. For women or girls in particular, there is, of course, gender disparity, especially in the schools.

β€œAnd certain norms and discrimination have not allowed the girls to be able to continue to do their education. So, we have to take care of that. And, again, when you think about the number of girls who dropped out of school, I thought that it would be a big failure, on my part as a leader who is very passionate about education, to leave any girl behind,” he said.

The President also addressed the question of why did Sierra Leone recently overturn a law so that pregnant girls would never again be banned from classrooms. Julia Gillard, who is chair of the Board of Directors of the Global Partnership for Education, also asked the question of how did that action change the lives of girls across the country and increase access for all girls to quality education?

President Dr Julius Maada Bio said his government’s policy was to make sure that all girls, irrespective of the fact that they were pregnant, or not able to continue school, go back to school after childbirth.

β€œIt was for this reason that we brought in this new policy. What has it done? Well, of course, it's been difficult, we are trying to narrow the gender disparity gap, especially for pregnant girls. So, we had to bespeak this particular policy to make sure that those gender norms that militate against pregnant schoolgirls are taken care of. That is why we did this.

β€œWhat has it done? It has given confidence to girls, not to be pregnant, but to know that when they are pregnant, they still have another chance. That's a huge number in Sierra Leone. Last year alone, from school census, we had about over 2000 girls who were registered pregnant schoolgirls. Normally, all of them will drop out of school, but because of this policy they have the chance to continue school. And our policy is about making sure that they stay in school as long as possible, and that they can return to school after childbirth.

You know, on a lot of occasions, we have put the burden on the girls, little girls in their formative years. We look at them to be sexual gatekeepers, who would have to say no. That is victimisation. We are being unreasonable. And of course, after they get pregnant, we accused them again. And that means secondary victimisation. What our policy has done is, it has gotten rid of the secondary victimisation.

We are doing everything to prevent early pregnancy. My wife is a big campaigner. She goes all over Sierra Leone. β€˜Hands Off Our Girls’ is a campaign on her part, which means we don't want anybody to tamper with these girls. But should they fall victims, we should not secondarily victimise them. And that is what this policy is about,” he said.

Covid restrictions

*BROADCAST TO THE NATION BY HIS EXCELLENCY, DR. JULIUS MAADA BIO, PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SIERRA LEONE ON THE THIRD WAVE OF COVID-19*

*_FREETOWN – 1st JULY 2021_*

Fellow Sierra Leoneans,

Let me start by paying tribute to the memory of fellow citizens we have lost to COVID-19, their relatives and community members. I also thank our healthcare workers, security forces, frontline workers, experts, and our partners who have stood by us as we battle this deadly pandemic.

But above all, I want to commend you, my fellow citizens, for your great patience, cooperation, and compliance with public health advisories and measures since the index COVID-19 case on 31st March 2020.

Together as a nation, and in peace, we have coped with financial and social constraints, restrictions on movement, and the general global uncertainties and anxieties caused by this pandemic.

We did not renew the state of emergency once it elapsed. We eased restrictions on worship and travel and completely lifted the curfew. We did so then based on our assessment of COVID-19 infections.

So far, we have kept our children in schools and colleges at all levels; kept hospitals and all Government offices open; kept public services running; kept congregational worship centres open, kept businesses open; and, supported the most vulnerable of our citizens throughout this period. Our Quick Action Economic Recovery Programme has mitigated the impact of the pandemic and maintained our economy on an even keel.

All Covid-19 emergency response pillars from the national to district levels have remained active. All our policies as a Government have been well-thought-out to minimise the economic and other burdens of the pandemic, to save lives, and to protect livelihoods.

International partners and institutions have unreservedly praised our competent handling of the first and second waves of the pandemic as we kept case fatality ratios at under 3%.

However, according to the World Health Organisation, the third wave of COVID-19 is here and the Delta variant has been recently detected in Sierra Leone. That variant is easily transmitted and it is very deadly.

More people have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last few weeks. More people have been hospitalised and 72% of beds in treatment and care centres are occupied. More people are dying and the Western Area is the epicentre of the latest wave of COVID-19 infections.

We have assessed the data. We have carefully examined the patterns of infection. We have closely looked at the trends. We believe we must take urgent and necessary steps to stem this third wave of the COVID-19 pandemic in Sierra Leone and thus save lives and protect livelihoods.

I, therefore, announce the following interventions:

a) A nationwide curfew is imposed for a period of one month effective Monday 5th July 2021 from 11pm to 5am daily.

b) Congregational worship in churches, mosques, and other religious places is suspended for a period of one month effective Friday 2nd July 2021.

c) Restaurants and bars are encouraged to use takeaway services and they shall close at 9pm daily.

d) Attendance at funerals, weddings, and other social events shall be limited to no more than fifty persons.

e) Drivers and passengers are strongly urged to get their COVID-19 vaccination prior to all intra and inter-district travels.

All prior NACOVERC measures and advisories on proper face- masking, handwashing, and social distancing remain in full force.

NaCOVERC will enforce these measures strictly. I, therefore, call on all citizens to cooperate with these interventions. These measures will be reviewed from time to time based on scientific data and expert advice.

COVID-19 vaccines that are available in this country are safe and efficacious. They have been approved by our Pharmacy Board and the World Health Organisation. I, senior members of Government, over a hundred thousand citizens have been fully vaccinated. This vaccine will protect you against COVID-19 and protect your life. I, therefore, strongly urge every eligible citizen to take the free COVID-19 vaccines that are widely available throughout the country.

I thank you and God bless Sierra Leone.

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.
