NaCSA Commissioner Pledges Sierra Leone’s Support To The Global Refugee Challenges


NaCSA Commissioner Pledges Sierra Leone’s Support To  The Global Refugee Challenges

 Geneva, Switzerland Thursday 14 December 2023 The Commissioner of the National Commission for Social Action (NaCSA), Ambassador Ernest Mbaimba Ndomahina, has on behalf of His Excellency President Julius Maada Bio, pledged to the global supports for refugees to effectively and efficiently address the numerous challenges faced by refugees around the world at the ongoing Second Global Refugee Forum (GRF) 2023 at the Palexpo Complex in Geneva. 
The Global Refugee Forum is held every four years, and is the world’s largest international gathering on refugees. It is designed to support the practical implementation of the objectives set out in the Global Compact on Refugees: Ease pressures on host countries, enhance refugee self-reliance, increase access to third-country solutions and improve conditions in countries of origin. 

In his statement, the Head of Sierra Leone’s Delegation, Ambassador Ernest Mbaimba Ndomahina, Commissioner of National Commission for Social Action (NaCSA), highlighted the progress made by the Government of Sierra Leone, shared the experience and good practices in handling refugee issues, and outlined some of the challenges and opportunities ahead.
"Today", Commissioner Ndomahina said, "the world is becoming less safe because of conflicts and instabilities coupled with the threat we face from the climate crisis. These and many other societal factors are pushing people, families, and whole communities out of their homes, and more often now than ever before, forcefully".

It could be recalled that Sierra Leone transitioned from itself being a refuge source country with over half of its population leaving for other countries between 1991 and 2000, to becoming a host country for refugees. 

Sierra Leone in collaboration with the UNHCR, the ECOWAS Commission, and other international organizations successfully implemented the physical and legal reforms for the protection of refugees and asylum seekers. 

To contribute to the strengthening of global refugees mechanisms, Commissioner Ambassador  Ndomahina on behalf of the President and people of Sierra Leone pledged to:
1: Implement the adopted National Action Plan on Statelessness to ensure that by 2026 80% of persons identified at risk of becoming stateless persons are regularized.
2: Foster increased access to social rights through access to documentation and inclusion into the Productive Social Safety-Nets and Youth Employment Project to at least 1,500 persons by 2026
3: Mobilize millions of dollars to implement 93 socio-economic infrastructure projects identified in 19 refugee host communities for the full implementation of “Tenki Salon” project by 2024-2026 to foster a sustainable inclusion of refugees in host communities in the South-eastern and North-western Regions
4: Secure sustainable access to land in order to reinforce social inclusion for 3500 forcibly displaced in protracted situation by 2025/26

Commissioner Ndomahina calls on the UNHCR, ECOWAS and other international organizations to support the Government of Sierra Leone to access funds from global donors and international agencies for the full implementation of the “Tenki Salon” project and other pledges tendered for a sustainable phase-out of the remaining caseload of refugees with an effective and efficient road map to compensate host community based programmes,  a critical part of the five Game Changers of His Excellency the President, Dr. Julius Maada Bio’s immediate priorities.
Commissioner Ndomahina assured world leaders that, through NaCSA, Government will continue with its efforts  end statelessness and to ensure the regularization of the status of all persons of nationalities other than Sierra Leoneans.

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 then began to draw attention from people from all

A scammer from Sierra Leone has been captured by Guinean police.

  The person in the picture is actually Abdulai Jalloh, despite the fact that he is identified as a lecturer from Njala University under the name of Dr. Kanu. In early January of this year, he posted in a WhatsApp group in Kambia that he had scholarship chances and could help people acquire government pin codes, among other things, but that the offer was only valid for those from the South and east.   Someone sent him NLe1,500 for overseas study without realizing he was a scammer.  The scammer claimed that the entire application process for the scholarship cost 3,000 New Leone.  Later, the contacted person realized that he was not who he had been representing himself to be, and he immediately blocked the victim of his syndicate.  He once more perpetrated the same crime against Molai, another individual, and someone else.  In the pretense of an international scholarship, he demanded 3000 New Leones from each person. He accepted the cash and fled without telling them where he was.  The m
