Stop Fighting Yourselves Minister of State Warns
The Minister of State, in the Ministry of Finance and Economic Development (MoFED), Foday B.L Mansaray has in a meeting held on Tuesday 11th July, 2017, at the Statistics office on A.J Momoh street Freetown issued a stern warning to staff of the institution to stop fighting themselves and be united in the discharge of their duties effectively and efficiently.
The minister made this call in the wake of negative hearings of infighting among staff of the institution over the last three months mainly as a result of the vacant position of Statistician General. He noted that Statistics Sierra Leone is a very important institution and has the full support of the government and therefore they should all focus on the advancement of the institution.
Mr. Mansaray also made it clear that he has never influenced any negative decision taken against any member of staff and therefore admonished everyone to allow things take their right course instead of casting aspersions for certain actions to be instituted.
He stated that, a transitional technical team comprising four Directors has been set to act as Statistician General on a monthly basis. The Directors includes the current Acting S.G, Andrew Bock Johnny, Ibrahim G. Kargbo, Abu-Bakarr Turay and Peter S. Bangura respectively furthering that the position of the Statistician General will be advertised and three names will be recommended to His Excellency the president Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma.
The minister also promised to look into concerns raised by members of staff bordering on the cut in their monthly salaries.
