Mr. Koroma disclosed that, the only thing that can make his successor succeed as Chairman of the NCP is when he takes the NCP Act seriously, adding that there are enormous powers granted to the commission and that anybody that wants to challenge his authority, that person needs to read the NCP Act for better understanding.

“During my administration I encountered a lot of fighting; but being a lawyer I was guided by the NCP Act and as long as those in power enforce the NCP Act, I pursued them vigorously in the interest of our nation,” Koroma said when addressing his successor.

Privatization according to the outgoing chairman is a mode and process that was approved by the government of the late President Tejan Kabba. He added that since the late President Kabba proceeds from privatization processes have been paid to government exceeding $33,000,000 (thirty three million Dollars) with more state enterprises still to be privatized.

Responding, the new Chairman Umaru Napoleon Koroma said he accepts the challenge to help propel the development trajectory as the country marches towards middle income level status by 2035.

He disclosed that the report will serve as a major reference as he begins the business of transforming the commission in line with the New Direction of the President.

“I am grateful to the outgoing chairman for this invaluable report which will be read line by line for better understanding of the intricacies,” Koroma said.
