Former President Koroma Continues to Excel Globally
By Abdul Bero Kamara
Former President Ernest Bai Koroma is no more the President of the Republic of Sierra Leone, but he still continues to excel and amaze people both at home and abroad.
For the past two years after he left office he has been so busy travelling in and out of the country on international assignment.
On one occasion, if he is not leading a mission to monitor an election in another country, he will be out there as a special guest speaker for some high profile event .
Evidently, political analysts would agree with me that the former first gentleman has a very tight schedule now than before, also it is observed that it is more difficult to see him now as compared to when he was president.
In April 2019, Former president Ernest Bai Koroma, was in Portugal where he spoke as guest of the 2019 Horasis Global that took place in Cascais, Portugal.
This three-days event which kicked off on the 6th April 2019, was co-chaired by the former President of the European Commission – José Manuel Barroso.
The annual Horasis Global Meeting brings together business and public leaders to discuss economic, political and social issues that are having global impact; and that week’s event focused on “Catalysing the Benefits of Globalization”.
In November 2019 Former President Koroma was invited as a guest speaker at the 8th Zik’s lecture series which was held at the prestigious Nnamdi Azikiwi University in Anambra state Nigeria.
Amidst his tight schedule less than a week later he travelled to Namibia as leader of the AU election observer’s mission.
Currently he is in, Lome the capital of Togo as head of an AU observer’s mission to monitor a presidential elections that is scheduled for today 22/02/2020.
It also worth noting that he has being asked by the AU to be part of the AU elections monitoring team for the US presidential election scheduled for November 2020.
As Sierra Leoneans we should all be proud of our former president for the wonderful job he is doing across the world, and for making us proud as Sierra Leoneans.
For those who think they are on a mission to bring the former president down, should start reconsidering their evil though because a man that God had blessed no man will be able to bring him down.
