President Koroma extols 'decisive' Mahama

President of Sierra Leone, Ernest Bai Koroma has praised President John Mahama’s performance as Chairman of the Regional Body, Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), describing him as a decisive leader.
According to him, President Mahama as Chairman of ECOWAS “has hit the ground running."
The Sierra Leonean President says Mr. Mahama has shown some difference because the just concluded meeting of ECOWAS heads of states “is one of the best organized and most productive” they have had as a sub-region.
“If we continue with this kind of leadership in ECOWAS, I am sure we will go a long way in achieving the protocols that we have set out in addressing the specific issues that are now affecting the sub-region,’’ President Koroma indicated.
He further indicated that although the tenure of President Mahama has also been plagued with many challenges such as; Boko Haram in Nigeria and the scourge of Ebola in the sub-region, the ECOWAS Chairman has so far shown commitment to addressing the challenges.
President Mahama has convened meetings to help address the many challenges the sub-region faces since he was elected by colleague Heads of States to chair the Regional Body ECOWAS.
He has chaired a session to help address the Boko Haram problem in Nigeria and the security challenges in Mali.
President Bai Koroma in an interview with the press after the 45th session of ECOWAS in Accra stated that President Mahama’s decisiveness is the kind of leadership the regional body needs for growth and development.
President John Dramani Mahama has been elected Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States for one year.
His election was during the 44th ordinary session of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government in Yamoussoukro, La Cote d’Ivoire. He took over from President Alassane Ouattara of La Cote d’Ivoire.
