The newly appointed Ambassador during a courtesy call on the Minister of Health and Sanitation, Dr. Abu Bakarr Fofanah on Monday September 8, 2014 at his Youyi Building office in Freetown noted the exit of investors from the country and other challenges within the health sector.

He said the Ebola issue needs to be well coordinated between all three countries Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia, adding that though there are geographical borders, yet the spirit of oneness remains strategic within nationals.

Ambassador Camara observed the strong ties and cordial relationship between President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma and his Guinean counterpart Prof. Alpha Konde, pointing out that their leadership’s fraternity and foot prints worth emulation.

He expressed the need for Dr. Abu Bakarr Fofanah and his colleague Health Minister to share experience at regular intervals with a view to strengthen their relations in the fight to contain the Ebola virus disease.

Health and Sanitation Minister, Dr. Abu Bakarr Fofanah described the Ebola threat as a collective responsibility for the survival of all, noting that a war in Guinea is a crisis for both Sierra Leone and Guinea.

He said border closure is not the solution to the current Ebola outbreak and lauded the efforts of President Koroma and his colleague Heads of State Prof. Alpha Konde and Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf for their commitment and strategic leadership in the fight to contain the deadly Ebola virus disease.

The destiny of the two countries, Dr. Fofanah said is tied together with peace and stability, and recalled the invasion of the Revolutionary United Front (RUF) when Sierra Leoneans seek refuge in Guinea and accorded warm reception and hospitality.

He expressed delight over the Envoy’s visit and encouraged him to always feel free to meet with him as he is a minister with an open door policy.
