Sierra Leone President Sacks 3 Top Govt Officials Over 2017 Hajj Scam

Sierra Leonean President Ernest Bai Koroma has sacked three top officials in his government over a major scandal involving arrangement of this year’s pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.
Sierra Leone President Sacks 3 Top Govt Officials Over 2017 Hajj Scam
Those sacked are Alhaji Sheka Kamara, Special Assistant, Social Affairs, Office of the President; Mr. Nurideen Sanko Yilla, Special Assistant, Political Affairs, Office of the President; and Alhaji M A Bah, Minister of State, Office of the Vice President.

They are part of the Hajj Committee headed by Vice President Victor Bockarie Foh tasked with overseeing selection of intending pilgrims to benefit from government funding.

It costs roughly $5000 for a return ticket to attend the Hajj in Saudi. Very few Sierra Leoneans can afford that.

Therefore, the government, with support from donors, usually provides scholarships to poor pilgrims who are supposed to be selected through stringent criteria.

However, instead of doing things the right way, they decided to monetize the program.

There were reports on social media on Saturday that the Hajj Committee of 2017 were been accused of asking people to pay half of the cost ($2,500) to get their names included in the list.

The report also said non-Sierra Leonean nationals from Guinea and Mali have had their names included in the list, apparently have paid for the price.

The Presidency has announced an inquiry into the scam and ordered the officials, who currently are in Saudi Arabia, to return back to Sierra Leone.

“After taking the statement of Thompson, the PRO said the police proceeded to the residence of Misbau Amadu with the intent of inviting him to the station to help investigate the claim but he was not available.

“Thompson said at about 9: 00 pm last Thursday, Misbau came to his (Thomson’s) house, armed with a knife to attack him for reporting the case to the police. In the course of the fight, Thompson said he overpowered Misbau and stabbed him in self-defence.

“‘The matter is still under investigations’ Inspector Kwabena Danso posited. Meanwhile, crisis has allegedly broken out in the area, with many Nigerians being attacked.”

The incident , however, led to xenophobic attacks against Nigerians living in Ghana, with five persons killed already along Santa-Maria, somewhere not far from the town.

Ex Education Minister Ezekwesili: How to Get Rid of ASUU Strikes

According to the former Education Minister, Obiageli Ezekwesili, the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU, from the federal government are unrealistic with the current condition of the country.

Ex Education Minister Ezekwesili: How to Get Rid of ASUU StrikesSpeaking with newsmen on Sunday, she said the lasting solution to the crisis bedeviling the education sector could only be found from strong analysis of the issues raised by ASUU and evidenced based policies.

“Money is not limitless and yet everyone must acknowledge that investment in education is crucial and it is key.

“There are, however, some fundamental reforms that the sector needs in order to ensure that it is not about the size of the funding but about the productivity of the funding.

“You cannot simply express a desire, it must be founded on reality and that means you must know what can be achieved within a given period,” she said.

The minister says a structural and policy change which allows public and private investments should be integrated into the university system.

She said she was a key member of the ASUU negotiation which started in 2007.

“Even though that period was short, one of the major issues for me was for us to make sure that we were being evidenced based in the way we were solving the problem,

“We considered issues like the existing model in countries similar to us in emerging economies,’’ she said and added that they also considered what could be done by the public and private sectors about university funding among others.

“Those are the kinds of evidence that we had and on the basis of which we hinged our negotiation at that time,

“It was a very short period and then we had to leave and the next government that took over had to continue.

“I do not know the basis of the final agreement they reached with ASUU, but if it was not anchored on analytical evidence, I am not surprised that there has been inability to implement it.”

She then called on both the Federal Government and ASUU to return to the negotiating table and work on the basis of analysis and evidence to find lasting solution to the dispute.
