The Rt. Hon. Speaker of the Sierra Leone House of Parliament, SBB Dumbuya has on Tuesday 9th May 2017, described Dr. Nana Claris Pratt as “a national celebrity and an international icon”.

 

He also referred to her as “a kind-hearted woman who is highly principled and uncompromisingly strict”. The Speaker made these statements during the debate and ratification of the Fourth Report of the Parliamentary Committee on Appointments and the Public Service, for which the Parliament of Sierra Leone approved two, amongst which a Dr. Pratt, as Chairperson, National Protected Area Authority (NPAA).

Seconding the motion, Hon. Gladys Gbappy-Brima referred to Dr. Pratt as her mentor, a front-runner of women’s empowerment, and founder of a lot of women’s organizations and institutions in the country.

 

She also regarded the nominees as good people that have been appointed by President Koroma to serve in various capacities, the reason for which the “walls of Parliament are smiling”. Having regard for the extensive qualifications and experience of the nominees, she called on them to employ teamwork in the execution of their duties aimed at bringing sanity to the environment and improving the conditions of mining communities, with the view of “changing the developmental dynamics of the country”. 

 

Acting Minority Leader, Hon. Sidie Tunis said that educated and highly placed people in our society that are responsible for the depletion of our environment should be “named and shamed”.

 

Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Leonard Fofanah described the debate as “a spirited one” and encouraged nominees to do well in their respective nominations, otherwise “Parliament may recall them for poor performance through a vote-of-no-confidence”.

 

Dr. Nana Pratt was together with Brigadier General Usman Turay approved by Parliament for the protection of the environment and the enhancement of the minerals sector of Sierra Leone. Brigadier General Usman Turay, was approved Member, Minerals Advisory Board. These nominees will enter their official duties after President Koroma has administered and subscribed them to an oath office.
