Hon. Sulaiman Muluku Sesay was yesterday sworn in by Parliament to represent constituency 33, Bombali district as their new MP.
That seat was occupied by the country’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom/Northern Ireland, H.E Edward M. Turay after he was taken from Parliament and appointed. The new MP was the Board Chairman of the Sierra Leone Postal Service.
Hon. Ansu KaiKai of SLPP described him as one that should contribute to the development of the country and called on him to advocate for his constituents and to meet their needs. Hon. PC Banya said even though he had known him for a year, he was somebody that does not discriminate among tribes.
Hon. Elizabeth Lavalie warned him not to allow the euphoria to overtake him and to always remember the oath he took to uphold the Constitution and to do his Oversight functions. The Deputy Majority Leader, Hon. Suffian Kargbo told him that wanting to become an MP was different from becoming an MP. The Speaker also congratulated him and told him to always remember that he was under oath to put aside all private interest, prejudices and passion and affection.
Hon. Suffian Kargbo tabled on behalf of the Attorney General and Minister of Justice, The Commercial and Admiralty Court (FEES) Order, 2010, The Constitution of Sierra Leone, 1991 (Act No 6 of 19191) and the Constitutional instrument No. 8 of 2010.
Energy Minister, Professor Ogunlade Davidson also tabled The ECOWAS Energy Protocol No. A/P4/1/03 (WAPP), The International Renewable Energy Agency Statute (IRENA).
