President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma spent the start of Sierra Leone’s 54th Independence Anniversary day of Monday 27th April 2015 with the people of the Moa Wharf community in the capital city. The Moa Wharf has been a location recording recent cases of Ebola in Sierra Leone.

 

During his visit, the Head of State urged the residents not to relax in their efforts to end the Ebola crisis, especially so as the country has now registered Zero Ebola cases for two consecutive days. He added that it is the responsibility of every Sierra Leonean to end Ebola at the community level.

 

The president pointed out that it is collaboration at the community level that will provide the answer to end the outbreak and therefore encouraged all to enhance this joint effort to bring an end to this sad chapter of Sierra Leone’s history.

As he expressed appreciation to NERC and MOHS for their tremendous efforts in containing the outbreak, he reiterated government’s commitment to end the epidemic and restart the development trajectory of the country.

 

“We will put in place a new development strategy from the lessons learnt to continue the transformation of the country and change the lives of the people,” President Koroma said.

He lauded the community efforts particularly the youth and women’s groups for their supportive role to end the fight and encouraged them to remain vigilant in their efforts to finally defeat the disease.

 

The CEO of NERC Major (Rtd.) Alfred Paolo Conteh also urged the Moa Wharf community to continue the house to house efforts and to always comply with medical regulations.

The Western Rural Ebola Coordinator used the opportunity to appeal to the youth and particularly to the womenfolk to continue to be effective contact tracers and surveillance officers to win the war against the now receding virus.

 

The visit of the Head of State to the community was highly welcomed by residents; especially as it was done on the National Independence Day.
