Do you remember those glory days and glory nights when we locked horns on the Cocorioko Forum with mind-bursting and animated debates on national matters ? Well, those days are returning. The Cocorioko Discussion Forum is back. We have decided to bring back the forum to create another platform for Sierra Leoneans to intelligently and decently discuss matters affecting their nation. This open forum will be linked to our Facebook forum which presently has 18, 000 users.
THE NEW COCORIOKO FORUM WAITING TO BE USED
The uniqueness of this forum rests on the fact that government officials, politicians and public figures and their press men and media promoters will be free to come here to defend criticisms levied against them by participants. Everybody will be given an opportunity to be heard. It will not be a one-sided forum with the expressed motive to damage the hard-earned reputation of other people. Nobody will be allowed to use our forum to settle scores . All discussions will be based on burning national matters and undue intrusion into the private lives of other people will not be tolerated . We want to set up a forum that will demonstrate that we Sierra Leoneans are capable of engaging in interesting, educative and fruitful discussion of matters affecting our nation. People have condemned the quality of public discourse among Sierra Leoneans . We want to bring a more enlightened, fact-based discourse that will serve the cause of our nation. If you believe that you are being defamed and your own side of the story is not being heard, come and be part of the Cocorioko Forum.
We are not here to compete with any forum or listserve. In fact, cross-postings will not be allowed on our forum. Our aim is to provide a balanced platform where people will be privileged to clean up their names or present their own side of the story. As we know, there are two sides to any story.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR a competent administrator /Monitor . This individual must live in the United States of America and to be accepted, he/she must produce a verifiable self-photo, a verifiable address and telephone number .
