The newly appointed Deputy Executive Director of the Sierra Leone RoadSafety Authority (SLRSA), Ibrahim Sannoh has on Friday, 28th September 2018 joined Muslims at his Party’s national headquarters, Wallace Johnson Street in Freetown to observe the Jumah prayer.

 Jumah is an Arabic word for Friday congregational prayer that Muslims hold every Friday just after midday.  Muslims perform this congregational prayer in fulfilment of the Holy Quran which makes it mandatory.

Sannoh who is a devoted Christian said he performed this congregational prayer to demonstrate that we are one and equal in the eyes of God Almighty. He noted that, “as a child of God we must preach peace and continue to be united in the bond of love.”

Expressing his sincere appreciation to His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio for reposing confidence in young people of this country, he said, “President Bio believes young people are instrument of development.”

According to him, his appointment is a testament to this ambitious drive to empower young people. He disclosed that since independence, President Bio has appointed more young people to become Ministers, Directors and Mangers than any other President.

He said his visit was to pray with his Muslims brothers and sisters and finally thank the party leadership for providing the platform for him to diligently serve the Sierra Leone People’s Party in diverse positions.

Sannoh said, “My visit was deliberate. I cannot resume work without paying visit to my party office and recognize the good work of all supporters, members and the party leadership for your respective roles in bringing an overwhelming victory for the party.”

He confided in them that he is ready to deliver for national development and assured that, “we value you. You are our treasured commodity.” He inspired them to stand tall to confront the challenges ahead, but warned that they must not allow detractors to distract them.

According to him, they are all needed and at the same time qualified to serve in any Ministerial position or serve in his own capacity.

“Let us all be hopeful and pray for divine wisdom, knowledge and understanding for President Bio,” he reiterated, adding that, “Our President is on track and has put together a dedicated team to achieve the New Direction.”

The new Deputy Executive Director appealed to the Muslim worshippers to continue to pray for President Bio and his team to actualize the New Direction’s development trajectory plans.

During a conducted tour, he told the different youth groups that, “we inherited a battered economy but with dedicated commitment to national service, we are on track as salaries are paid on time and other successful development have been made.”

On his part, the Commander of Kundara Base, Ibrahim Sheriff popularly known as Bravo commended the new Deputy Executive Director, stating that, “you are the only person after being appointed to visit us in recognition of our good work to bring the party to political power.” He commended Sannoh on behalf of other young groups such as ‘Soja Team.’

Sannoh received a lot of commendations from the party supporters and members. The Ambassador to Senegal, Brima Koroma also commended the youngest SLRSA Deputy Executive Director for visiting the party office.
