Mr. Noah said that the two young and vibrant guests arrived at a time when the safety sector is suffering a big setback following the death of some military personnel in a road accident in Freetown while another accident which took the lives of some passengers heading for Bo drowned in a river after their vehicle somersaulted.
He said that when it comes to road safety, Mano River Union countries are way behind. He encouraged the Chairman to work hand in glove with them to ensure that safety standards are met.
Addressing the plight of customers, Mr. Noah called on employees to always work with integrity, conscience as his motive is for clients to have their services delivered within three working days instead of frustrating them.
In his remarks, the Chairman Board of Directors, Sheik M. Bawoh said that road safety campaign has always resonated with him as he is well informed about the sector. “I warmly appreciate this great honor, but I would be happy if such honor translates to results which I am here for. I am aware of the numerous challenges and tasks of the Authority in a country where lawlessness is considered as a right. But with our collective efforts, determination and dedication we will achieve the safety mandate of the New Direction”, the Chairman informed his audience.
Chairman Bawoh cautioned staff of SLRSA not to use their offices as political discussion grounds as the President keeps re-echoing that ‘politics is over’ but to now work diligently to deliver the needed results. He promised on behalf of his Board Members to institute open door policies and to always welcome ideas irrespective from whom it is coming from.
On his part, the Deputy Executive Director, Ibrahim Sannoh said they are on a mission to transform the sector and that their appointment by the President is a step in the right direction. He sternly warned that familiarization should never be a yardstick for elevation under his purview but encouraged all to work genuinely in order to be rewarded genuinely.
Earlier, the Road Safety Corps of the Sierra Leone Road Safety Authority mounted a guard of honor in honor of the Chairman and Deputy Executive Director.
