The national chairman,Mr. Mathew Maggao, said that his entire membership is sure that ambassador Tejan-Jalloh will justify the confidence reposed in him and wished the new envoy well.

In reply H.E. Alhaji Sulaiman Tejan-Jalloh(photo, first from left) thanked the SLPP in the U.S. for the warm welcome accorded him and his family. He pointed out that he is a member of the SLPP and that makes him a politician on a diplomatic assignment.

He promised to make his contributions towards taking the party forward. H.E. Tejan-Jalloh outlined the developments( a good road network,new schools in every chiefdom, telecommunication and maintaining the peace) the SLPP brought to Sierra Leone since it took power in 1996.

Mr.Maggao said that his executive will ensure that they take the party to every corner of this country in-order to expand the membership and get more funds for the party. He encouraged the delegates to form two important committees(an out reach committee and a fund raising committee) to help that party reach its goals. He called on members to put the interest of the party and the country above their personal interests.

On the final day of the two day conference delegates ratified a constitution and used it to elect Mr. Momodu Sheku as National Secretary- General, Mr. Bumi Davies as National Organizing Secretary and Mr. Darlington Brima as Assistant Youth Leader.
