Bidding him farewell at State House recently, His Excellency Rtd. Brig. Julius Maada Bio asked the newly appointed Sierra Leonean Ambassador to the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Rashid Sesay to focus on government’s priority areas while out there.

Amb.  Sesay was reportedly asked by the President to engage business potentials in UAE in order to bolster the ‘New Direction’ agenda, particularly its free quality education flagship programme and at the same time use his experience and competence to strengthen the already existing bilateral relationship between the two countries while assuring him of the backing of the Foreign Ministry.

In response, the Ambassador designate to UAE commended President Bio for his positive strides whilst thanking him for appointing him as the country’s Ambassador to the UAE. He assured the President that he would adequately represent the country and ensure that the government’s priority areas are focused on.
