The Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs, Lahai Lawrence Leema on Wednesday night 12th December received Sierra Leone Leadership Award for 2018 as the Emerging Best Minister of the Year at the Golden Tulip Hotel, Essential Kimbima, Aberdeen in Freetown.

Whilst receiving the Award, the energetic, articulate, meticulous and outspoken Deputy Internal Affairs Minister was welcomed with rousing applause and praises by the jubilant audience.

In his brief acceptance speech, Mr. Leema expressed delight at the honour bestowed on him and thanked the audience for their commendations. “Society is whole but also compartmentalized. Its compartmentalization fosters individual competition that comes with recognition, followed by motivation that inspires nation building,” the motivational, enthusiastic Deputy Minister said.

The inspirational statement by the industrious Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs was a reflection of his audience (business executives, NGOs & MDAs) and captures his acceptance for the “Best Emerging Minister of the Year Award.”

The Deputy Minister dedicated the award to God for His Grace, His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio for believing in him and appointing him to serve the nation in the capacity of a Deputy Minister, and to the grassroots from whom he emerged.
