The Aberdeen Creek Committee led by its Chairman, Dr Joseph Sam Sesay Monday 21st  March, 2016 presented recommendations to President Dr Ernest Bai Koroma at State House, Freetown. The Aberdeen Creek committee was set up by President Koroma to look into issues surrounding the Creek and consequently make prudent recommendations.


In his presentation, Dr. Sam Sesay made the following recommendations:


That the Aberdeen Creek be demarcated with concrete pillars to avoid any future encroachments; that encroachers be brought to book; that the Mayor of Freetown make available the list of people residing in the Aberdeen Creek with no legal permit; that a court for environmental crimes be instituted to specifically look into environmental issues, and that people living around the Creek be relocated to Mile Six.


Responding to this, President Koroma described the details of their submission as clear indication of hard work and dedication, and commended them for their effort. He welcomed the idea of paying a working visit to the Aberdeen Creek to be able to reach an informed decision within the week and also stressed on the need to fully enforce the law to ensure that the whole Creek is cleansed for tourist attraction. The president called on the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to quickly map out the disaster prone areas in the country to effect immediate actions on environmental issues.
