Our candidacy was anchored on the theme of “Partnership, Multilateralism and Representative Approach to Sustained Global Peace and Security” and Sierra Leone was elected by an overwhelming majority of the United Nations General Assembly, running as an endorsed candidate of the @_AfricanUnion.
Our return to the @UN Security Council is a generational accomplishment and a testament to my SLPP Government’s transformation of Sierra Leone’s international reputation and standing and our immense foreign policy gains over the past 5 years.
Our presence on the #UNSC represents our unique success as a democratic and peaceful country of resilience and unbounded optimism. One that successfully transitioned from war to peace while working in partnership with the United Nations. A country no longer defined by the stigma of the past. A beacon of hope and fortitude. A place of great belief that the future will be better, more just and more peaceful because of the investments we are making today in an inclusive and sustainable future.
As Sierra Leone accedes to this primary global decision-making organ on peace and security matters at the United Nations, let me, on behalf of every Sierra Leonean, express our profound gratitude to our #African brothers and sisters and their Governments for their unwavering and unconditional demonstration of solidarity. Sierra Leone’s success is #Africa’s success.
I also thank the member States of the @UN for their overwhelming support and trust in the people and Government of Sierra Leone under my leadership.
On this momentous day, I call on every Sierra Leonean to hold their head high, celebrate, and be proud of Sierra Leone’s historic achievement at the heart of the international system.” He said
