He further explained the long standing relationship between the Freetown City Council and the Hull City Council and their contributions in supporting developmental strive over the years.

“we are going to Hull City simply because Hull won the city of culture in UK for the year 2017, since they won the ticket to hold the city of culture in UK, it is no secret that Freetown City Council, some thirty years or more twined up with the city of Hull, and since then we have been working in close relationship.” Franklyn Bode Gibson confirmed.

He furthered that William Wilberforce was a philanthropist that advocated for the abolition of the slave trade, adding that Wilberforce was from Hull city and it was one of the reasons that called for the twining of the two cities.

He reiterated that the Hull City Councils supported the Freetown City council in the reestablishment of local governance in 2004 and 2005 by empowering the council with garbage trucks and other equipment, pointing out that the two cities want the cordial relationship to flourish.

A member of the delegates, Ernest Brewah popularly known as Vamboi promised that they will showcase the best parts of Sierra Leone’s culture in England. He said the Hull City has been part of Sierra Leone’s history as he referenced the abolition of the slave trade.
