General Sekouba Konate – Will visit Sierra Leone
General Sekouba Konate, the interim Head of State of the republic of Guinea, will pay a courtesy call on his Sierra Leone counterpart, Dr Ernest Bai Koroma on Tuesday. General Konate will call on the Sierra Leone President at his official state house premises where it is expected they will discuss matters of bilateral relations between the two countries. General Konate will also be conveying his government’s gratitude for the pivotal role the Sierra Leone leader played in ensuring Guinea’s stability and peaceful transition of power during the recent elections, and would urge the Head of State to provide more needed support in the forthcoming run-off of the elections expected to take place at the end of this month
President Ernest Bai Koroma has been very instrumental in establishing a credible election process in the West African State. As Guinea’s neighbour and friend, the Sierra Leone president is fully aware of the need for a stable government in Guinea, as any instability in the country will affect the entire region. He has worked with other ECOWAS heads of states in finding a lasting solution to Guinea’s recent political turmoil. President Koroma will urge the Guinean leader to continue lead his country towards the path of democratic elections and transition to civilian rule.
