By: - Alhaji Mohamed Wusha-Conteh 27th August, 2018

His Excellency Julius Maada Bio, President of Sierra Leone, has emphasized that Sierra Leone commitment to the United Nations Charter and the building of a more secure world resonates with the theme of this year’s General Assembly debate. He made this statement whilst addressing the 73rd United Nation General Assembly in New York.

President Bio said Sierra Leone recently demonstrated its commitment to democratic governance with yet another peaceful transfer of power from an incumbent political party to the opposition, and thank the international community for facilitating and monitoring the electoral process. He further said the country stands ready to maximize its potential for development and called on bilateral partners to help deliver on the expectations of the people of Sierra Leone.

President Bio reiterated that the need for reform remains urgent and Member States must work to redress the historical inequalities done to African countries and called for a reform of the Security Council, pointing out that Africa is the only region without permanent representation and underrepresented in the non-permanent category and stressed that the United Nations will be undemocratic and discriminatory if Security Council reform is not addressed.

He maintained that the Government emphasizes is on job creation, access to quality education, youth empowerment, empowerment of women, combating corruption and fostering a culture of accountability and transparency.
