🇸🇱 🚩 *PRESIDENT ERNEST KOROMA’S HANDING OVER NOTES TO MARK EVENT OF INAUGURATION OF H.E. PRESIDENT JULIUS BIO, WILL BE RELEASED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC FROM SUNDAY ONWARDS*
In 2007, former President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah prepared a Statement to mark the occasion of the official inauguration of his successor, President Ernest Bai Koroma. The Statement was never orally delivered as a speech by mouth but rather was printed as a written statement and published extensively; primarily inside the Awareness Times Newspaper of Dr. Sylvia Olayinka Blyden, OOR.
According to Dr. Blyden, when the former president could not deliver the Statement by mouth as it was so lengthy, he had asked her to kindly help him out to publish it inside her newspaper which she did; thus popularizing and immortalizing the Handing Over written words of the former President. Contrary to some misinformation, former President Kabbah never delivered a Statement at the Inauguration of President Koroma. We repeat:- PRESIDENT KABBAH NEVER DELIVERED A STATEMENT AT PRESIDENT KOROMA’S INAUGURATION. Rather, we can authoritatively remind all that it was the Awareness Times Newspaper alone which exclusively published the Tejan Kabbah Handing Over Statement inside the Inauguration Special Edition of Awareness Times. That was in 2007.
Now in 2018, it is the turn of President Koroma to hand over to the new President of Sierra Leone and Koroma has also prepared a Handing Over Statement. However, the ruling SLPP Government informed the outgoing President Koroma that he would not be allowed to deliver any Statement by mouth at the Inauguration of President Julius Maada Bio. The programme prepared did not have any segment for the former President to speak.
Given the importance of preparing a Handing Over Statement in line with that of his predecessor, the former President Dr. Ernest Koroma yesterday Friday 11th May 2018 visited the new President H.E. Dr. Julius Maada Bio at State House and handed over to him a 36-paged Handing Over Notes.
SEA MEDIA GROUP has learnt that the Handing Over Notes detailing excellent service of President Koroma over 10 years, are so comprehensive, so convincing and so immaculately presented that they will definitely overshadow the current President’s as-yet-primordial efforts to build a legacy. We also learnt that as a result of not wanting to overshadow President Bio on his special day, the former president gave directives that the 36-paged Handing Over Notes should not be released until after the day of the Inauguration so as not to attempt to overshadow the Inauguration Speech which President Bio will deliver.
One of the volunteers at the Office of the Former President told SEA MEDIA thus: “This is our new president’s inauguration and also his birthday. Let us not spoil his birthday and inauguration celebrations. Let us allow him to shine alone in the spotlight. If we release Ernest Bai Koroma’s Handing Over Notes today, it will just completely overshadow President Maada Bio – completely and utterly overshadow him and this is his special day. Why spoil it?”.
Our source said that the 36-paged Handing Over document was already handed over to President Maada Bio on Friday and that Handing-Over event was already broadcast on many TV stations, on Youtube social media and over many radio stations. Click the following link to watch that news.
So, everyone already knows a Handing Over document exists, was prepared by Koroma and handed over to Bio yesterday Friday May 11th 2018. *The most important person who should read the Handing Over document is H.E. President Bio and H.E. President Bio has already received the 36-paged document over 24 hours ago.*
Additionally, SEA MEDIA has been reliably informed that 10,000 (ten thousand) copies of the 36-paged Handing Over Notes have been printed for distribution all over Sierra Leone. Apart from the hard copies, the electronic PDF version of the Handing Over Notes will be released over social media around the world.
It is however clear that the Office of Former President Koroma has, out of courtesy to His Excellency President Bio, taken a decision to delay the release the contents of the 36-Paged Handing Over Notes until after conclusion of the Inauguration celebrations. Therefore the earliest the information within the 36-Paged Handing Over Notes will be released, is on Sunday 13th May 2018.
There is already so much excitement and hype. All citizens are so eager to know what is inside the 36-paged Handing Over document which Former President Koroma handed over to H.E. President Bio but all are being urged to just be patient for now and wait until tomorrow. If you are an SLPP supporter, please forget about Handing Over Notes and just go and enjoy at one of the various Inaugural Balls and parties being held. If you are an APC supporter, please hold your head up high and be proud of the service which President Koroma and the APC-led Government rendered to us all. The document is a delicious preparation to satisfy you all. It is a historic document. A legacy of legacies – an ENDURING LEGACY! Sit tight and wait to enjoy it.
Accompanying this update is a photo of some of the cartoons containing thousands and thousands of printed copies of the fantastic, wonderful Handing Over Notes of APC’s Former President Ernest Koroma to SLPP’s H.E. President Julius Maada Bio. 10,000 copies are already printed and packaged in cartoons; to be shared nationwide to all corners of Sierra Leone. Thank you.
