During his introduction to (ACP) States, Ambassador Musa recalled President Julius Maada Bios’ visit to the Secretariat last year where he spoke of his support for the vision of the ACP Group of States and shared with them how his engagements with the ACP-EU have been successful over the years.

He added that President Bio, being the Coordinator of the African Union Committee of Ten Heads of State and Government is working on the reform of the United Nations, and has always seen the continent’s geopolitical realities as not favorable for Africa which compels for a comprehensive reform of the whole Security Council.

He said: “Africa is the only region without representation in the Permanent Category of the Security Council. We count on your support in our collective endeavor to transform the United Nations. The New Direction Government in Sierra Leone, under the leadership of His Excellency the President, Julius Maada Bio has an agenda and a model to transform the lives of Sierra Leoneans. The main components of the model are investing in human capital development, ensuring efficient and effective management of the economy, investing in Science, Technology and Innovations and promoting good governance.”

He briefed the large gathering on President Bio’s flagship Free Quality Education program and the impact it has created within the shortest time.

He also explained how the government is winning the fight against corruption and how the introduction of the Treasury Single Account has enabled the government to mobilize more revenue to support its priority programmes.

Ambassador Musa also spoke on government’s effort in strengthening democratic institutions, opening up democratic spaces and promoting democratic dialogues.

“We believe that the new direction model will transform the country, promote the creation of wealth for the people of Sierra Leone and reduce poverty and suffering. I am joining the Committee of Ambassadors at a critical time when negotiations on the future relationships with the EU have reached a critical stage,” adding that the ACP Group of States has a track successful track record of dealing with simple and complex issues. He further said: “Working together will make us stronger and more effective in achieving our social, political objectives and outcomes and I have come prepared and ready to play an active part in the ACP activities”, he maintained.
