PRESIDENT KOROMA WAS ETHNICITY-BLIND, INCLUSIVE IN HIS APPOINTMENTS : HERE ARE MANY MENDES AND SOUTH-EASTERNERS HE APPOINTED IN GOVERNMENT ( UNLIKE TRIBALISTIC PRESIDENT BIO WHO APPOINTS ONLY MENDES )
By Kabs Kanu
PRESIDENT ERNEST KOROMA WAS REALLY AN OUTSTANDING AND INCLUSIVE LEADER , WHO WAS BLIND TO TRIBE, REGION OR ETHNICITY. MAY GOD BLESS PRESIDENT KOROMA .
Unlike President Bio, who is tribalistic and appoints only Mendes to top government posts, President Koroma was a true national leader who gave opportunities to mendes and people of South-Eastern origin abundant opportunities to serve in government.
President Ernest Koroma was not tribalistic or regionalistic. He appointed people based on their qualifications and suitability for the jobs.
I have said that once God keeps me alive, I will always refute wrong information not only against previous governments but anything to do with Sierra Leone. The reason is that I have lots of information archived in my newspaper and elsewhere .
Today, after accusing President Bio of being tribalistic in his appointment, angry SLPP supporters retorted that President Koroma did the same.Some of them , like one YAHYA KALLON, challenged me to name the mendes and south-easterners President Koroma appointed in his government. . This was a silly challenge because there are abundant names of mendes and south-easterners that President Koroma appointed to key government positions.
This is what you call a President of a country, unlike President Bio who is not fit to be called a President but a clan or tribal chief.
