SIERRA LEONE STUDENTS IN VENEZUELA WRITE TO HON. DR. SYLVIA OLAYINKA BLYDEN

 

The Sierra Leonean Students Association,

Caracas,

Venezuela.

10th. February, 2017.

 

Dr. Sylvia O. Blyden,

Honourable Minister of Social Welfare Gender and Children’s Affairs,

Freetown, 

Sierra Leone,

West Africa.

 

Dear Ma,

 

LETTER OF THANKS AND APPRECIATIONS TO YOU ALL CONCERNED AND THE GOVERNMENT OF SIERRA LEONE


We are very grateful to acknowledge, appreciate and say a very big thanks to you specially Dr. Sylvia O. Blyden our Liaison Officer who also doubles to be the Minister of Social Welfare Gender and Children’s Affairs of the Republic of Sierra Leone; for concerted efforts you applied on our behalf as students to always get out stipends in Venezuela. This particular one for the academic year 2015/2016 you went all out not as a minister but as an ordinary citizen. At the expense of all your busy schedules and challenges as a minister of the above named ministry you continued to be on your legs as our only hope to see that we are not left behind at all and you achieved the goal of satisfying our desperate needs to have those monies. We wish and pray that Sierra Leone would one day have so many people in government offices like you; brave, hard-working, honest, kind, open minded and reliable. No words to describe your qualities as a leader.

 

Something to confess and comment on about you if you give me the permission to do is that I admired your patience with me as the Acting Secretary General of the students with all my torments through texts and audio records explaining our desperate socio-economic situations we are facing presently in the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela. I was always encouraged by your advices, updates and hopes you continued to give me until they all became success stories because it never happened once or twice but more than that. My messages never respected time and privacy and sometimes I felt guilty in many occasions and apologized but you never accepted any of my apologies nor were you for a moment molested with me but went on spear-heading our struggles to succeed, survive and make us feel belonged to Sierra Leone irrespective of the distance. 

Hon. Dr. Sylvia O. Blyden MSWGCA

 

I personally concluded that if all civil servants would have had the qualities of being patient and perseverant in their respective offices Sierra Leone would have been a safe and sweet country to live.

 

We also register our thanks and appreciations to His Excellency the President of the Republic of Sierra Leone Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma for his attention through Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden as his special representative on our behalf here and most importantly for His Excellency’s wisdom to identify and making her part of his Government. Our thanks and appreciations extend to all parties involved like the ministers of the ministries of Education Youths & Sports, Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Relations not forgetting His Excellency Ambassador Bockarie Stevens in the United States of America, the Accountant General and the Bank Governor of the Bank of Sierra Leone both in the Ministry of Finance.

 

To conclude on this issue of thanks and appreciations I will just summarize what would have been a voluminous book if I was to explain how we felt collectively or individually when we finally received the good news of the last break-through at such a desperate time that we were happy and very grateful. Time will not allow me to do that. I finally end up saying thanks to you Dr. Blyden again.

 

My regards,

——————

Amadu Lamarana Leigh

Acting Secretary General.
