“As I speak, concrete measures have been put in place to develop and advance the capacity of staff of the authority, who would be conducting registration processes of marriages, births and deaths, or multipurpose identity cards, as it is a modernized system recommended for international best practices,” Mr. King said.

He urged every Sierra Leoneans to cooperate and give the authority support and wherewithal, so as to enable the National Civil Registration Authority  surmount numerous challenges ahead, and at the same time assist the central government in the national budget planning exercise and allocation to various regions in the country.
