By Jarrah Kawusu-Konte

His Excellency the President, Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma, has called on all Sierra Leoneans to be disciplined. He was speaking on Friday February 8th 2013 at the 52nd annual meeting of the Ahmadiyya Mission in Sierra Leone held in Bo City.

The Head of State thanked the people of Bo and more especially the Muslim community for their efforts in the just concluded elections in November last year. “In my second term, I hope to implement the “Agenda for Prosperity”, but prosperity will not come from the Heavens, wake you up and deliver prosperity on a silver platter”, he said, adding that “discipline is needed to make this happen”.

Without discipline, he went on, progress will not be made, saying the Muslims are an example of a disciplined institution, particularly in their behaviour during the Convention, and the way they comport themselves during prayers.

Earlier, the President said the Ahmadiyya Mission continues to play a pivotal role in spreading love all across Sierra Leone, adding that the nation appreciates the good work they are doing in the health and educational sectors in the country.

President Koroma also said that the Ahmadis have contributed immensely in spreading the truism that Sierra Leone is indeed a religiously tolerant country in the world.
