SIERRA LEONE'S π…πˆπ‘π’π“ π‹π€πƒπ˜  WINS AFRICA WOMAN OF THE YEAR AWARD  2022

The Voice Achievers Award Company on Saturday 20th August at the Sir Dawda Kairaba International Conference Center awarded the First Lady of Sierra Leone Dr. Fatima Maada Bio the African Woman of the year 2020.

The Voice Achievers Awards is established in the Netherlands and it has become a global event attended by hundreds of people. 

Organisers of the event said Dr.Fatima Maada Bio epitomises bravery, intelligence and servant leadership, as evident in the massive impact being recorded by her humanitarian and official work across the globe.

They highlighted the rich academic background of the First Lady including her graduation from the Roehampton University with BA Honours in Performing Arts, which qualifies her as an International Actress and Script Writer.
Mrs. Bio, they said, has led numerous gender, philanthropic and child welfare campaigns even before she became First Lady.

The First Lady has won the prestigious Best African Woman Actress Award, which she has been using to empower women and girls in the United Kingdom and Africa. 

Receiving the award onbehalf of the first Lady, Sierra Leone's High Commissioner  to The Gambia H.E Lucretia Mariam Shereef said  the first Lady would have love to be present but she was unavoidably absent due to situations beyond her Control.

H.E Shereef thanked the organisers for recognising the hard work of the first Lady of Sierra Leone.

She said Fatima Bio is on record to have hosted one of  the biggest peaceful protest marches against gender and child abuses - a campaign that was not only attended by her counterparts in the region but raised international attention to the issue of rape and gender abuses. This marks the start of her flagship Hands Off Our Girls Campaign.

She described the Hands Off Our Girls Initiative as the biggest and most impactful child rights campaign that led to a presidential declaration of national emergency on rape and sexual violence and the ultimate review and strengthening of the Sexual Offences Act.

She also played a major role in the establishment of the first ever Special Court that is now being used to prosecute rape offenders.

She also highlighted the launch of the free sanitary pads distribution campaign spearheaded by the First Lady as an offspring of the Hands Off Our Girls Campaign and to complement the Free Quality Education Initiative of the Maada Bio led Government of Sierra Leone.

High commissioner Shereef said the first Lady is currently constructing an ultra modern 500 beds hospital, which will become the biggest hospital ever constructed by an African First Lady, a nursing school, center of excellence for rape victims and an administrative block.

She pointed out that the First Lady has constructed an ultra modern vocational school for police wives and provided livelihood support through the national food basket.

H.E.Shereef went further to reiterate that the African Union appointed Mrs Bio as Champion for Sanitation and Hygiene.

The United Nations, she said, has also honored the First Lady as the Champion for the UNAIDS Education Plus Initiative alongside President Macky Sall of Senegal.

"Her philanthropic character is inborn and she is a fantastic role model that leads by example," She stated

Dr. John Idriss Lahai, the whistle-blower for fake degrees is "Social Medially dead". If you recall, in the year 2022, Dr. John Idriss Lahai, a whistle-blower who exposed a phony degree, attracted the attention of every patriotic Sierra Leonean. His activity came to light after it was found that numerous Sierra Leoneans had received honorary PhDs from a Waterloo, Western Rural District postsecondary institution that was not accredited. Even well-known Sierra Leoneans, including the previous Inspector General of Police, were given honorary PhDs by the university known as Dominion University. When it was determined that the aforementioned university lacks the integrity to grant such a credential, the IG subsequently declined the offer.

He accepted the cash and fled without telling them where he was.  The m
