As he officially takes over the leadership of the Ministry of Basic and Senior Secondary Education (MBSSE), Conrad Sackey has vowed to consolidate and accelerate gains made by his predecessor Dr. Moinina David Sengeh.

He said unlike other ministers, his job is the toughest because he is succeeding the best performing minister in the last administration, noting that he will do all he can to fit in the shoe of his predecessor who is now the Chief Minister.

“My predecessor has built a solid partnership with a number of partners nationally and internationally. I am new, and those partnerships are based on David’s relationship. I need to go back to those partners in my first 100 Days in office to reinforce the fact that we will be consolidating the gains that have been made by Dr Sengeh. Where there are new trends and imagine issues, we want to respond to those as quickly as possible,” he said.

He said consolidating and accelerating gains made by his predecessor will require him having bilateral engagements with these partners which he said have started already.

He said Education Sector Plan 2022-2026 which was launched by President Julius Maada Bio in September 2022, at the Freetown International Conference Centre, Bintumani Hotel, Freetown is going to be his Bible.

In his emotional farewell speech, the former minister of MBSSE (now Chief Minister) thanked the leadership and staff of the MBSSE for their support during his reign as Minister, admonishing them to provide the same support to his successor.

The new Minister of Basic and Senior Secondary Education hails from a family that has produced four generations of teachers. He has held prominent positions in Education that prepared him for this new role. They include but not limited Chair of the Sierra Leone Teaching Service Commission; Chief Executive Officer of the Windsor Fellowship, a national education charity; Head of Information and Advice at Anglia Ruskin University; Strategic Manager, London East Connexions Partnership, a sub-regional partnership that coordinated integrated student support in Education; and an Additional Inspector of the Office of Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills in the UK.

He holds a MA in Education from University College London, Institute of Education; B.Sc. (Econ) Hons from Fourah Bay College, University of Sierra Leone; and is a Chartered Director, Institute of Directors, UK. He also has a number of professional qualifications in Educational Management, Teaching, Careers Guidance and Company Direction.

He currently serves as a Board Member of the African Federation of Teaching Regulatory Authorities (AFTRA), a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, Member of Institute of Directors, and a 2008 Travelling Fellow of Winston Churchill Memorial Trust.
