‘Tayyib Bah belonged to a community’….

Ibrahim El-Tayyib Bah is gone; he passed away on the evening of Friday 17th June 2011 at the Choithram Hospital, Hill Station, after a prolonged illness. 

His remains were laid to rest at the Goderich Village Ccemetery on Sunday 19th June after a well attended funeral service at the Fullah Central Mosque in Goderich. 

At the grave side, a Muslim cleric, Sheikh Allie Kallay offered some words of consolation to the bereaved relatives and friends. 

He however described the deceased as a man who was sociable and interactive. 

“Tayyib belonged to a family…he belonged to a community and was very mindful of his dealings with people…,” Sheikh Kallay said, adding “Tayyib was dedicated to a cause he believed in, and as President of SLAJ, he served his association diligently”. 

While praying for the departed, Sheikh Kallay said “as we turn our backs to go, Tayyib would hear our footsteps, but would follow us no more. By Allah’s command, the good angels would restore his life and from thence he will be asked to account for his deeds while on earth. 

Sheikh Alie Kallay is himself a journalist and radio producer at Voice of Islam FM 102 in Freetown. He however told mourners that upon death one would be judged by his or her deeds. 

He admonished all to be God-fearing and tread on the path of righteousness for to have mercy on them. 

The funeral ceremony was attended by imminent personalities in the Goderich community including tribal and religious leaders. 

Also in attendance were cross section of members of the Sierra Leone Association of Journalists (SLAJ) led by the President, Umaru Fofanah and representatives of the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP) of which the late Ibrahim Tayyib Bah served as National Publicity Secretary. 

The late Ibrahim El-Tayyib Bah is survived by his wife Zainab, and children.
