Eight prominent Sierra Leoneans including six judges of the Judiciary of Sierra Leone, on Tuesday 9th December 2014 appeared before the Appointment and Public Service Committee in Parliament for interviews. The Presidential Nominees were vetted at the Parliamentary Committee Room No.1 on strict requirements including educations, track records, asset declarations, pertinent working experiences and visions for next offices.

 

Addressing the nominees, the Majority Leader in Parliament, Hon. Ibrahim Bundu who serves as Chairman of the Appointment and Public Service Committee said it was a constitutional requirement for all Presidential Nominees to be vetted by the Honorable House for approval before taking ownership of their newly appointed offices. He said the interview was not an intimidation but procedure. According to Hon. Bundu, they were going to interview the nominees on information presented by themselves and what the general public had sent to parliament about them.

 

First to appear before the committee was renowned private sector investor, Mr. Oluniyi Robbin-Coker as proposed Board Chairman, Sierra Leone Investment and Export Agency (SLIEPA). Mr. Robbin-Coker, a former Minister of Energy was pronounced as someone with wealth of experiences centered on the private sector. The Nominee told the panel that he will use all his expertise to tackle the challenges that are ahead in the post Ebola era to marketing Sierra Leone to investors.

 

Ambassador Alieu Ibrahim Kanu faced the committee as nominee for Chairman Independent Media Commission (IMC). The Presidential Nominees assured that he will use his diplomatic and legal experiences to take IMC to a better status. When asked by Hon. Ibrahim Bundu to rate the media in present days Sierra Leone the Ambassador figured 65%.

 

Hon. Justice Vivian Margret Solomon was another Presidential Nominee who appeared before the committee for the position of Supreme Court Judge. She was advised by Hon. Veronica Kadie Sesay to be a mentor to young female lawyers to take her footsteps. The MP also appealed to her to treat women’s issues with the utmost desire and passion.
