2016 FREETOWN, SIERRA LEONE

 

THEME: “Innovative Farming Practices, Generating Strong And Quality Yields,

Promoting Natural Resource Conservation—While Ensuring Strong Farm And National Economics.”

DATE: October/November

 

APOLOGIES: WASAE 2016 CONFERENCE; FROM REV. MUSA J. JAMBAWAI.

 

Dear Noble Colleagues,

 

I regret to inform you that the WASAE Conference that was proposed to be held in Sierra Leone in October/November 2016 is now cancelled.

 

This is due to the Ebola situation in Sierra Leone. For the past two years (from 2014 to 2016) our movement within Sierra Leone had been greatly restricted. This was the precious period I could have moved about in and out of Sierra Leone to plan for the 2016 WASAE Conference.

 

I have also found from some of our colleagues that people are still skeptical about coming to Sierra Leone, even though the WHO has declared Sierra Leone "Ebola free." I fully understand their feeling, instead of blaming them.

 

I still continue to appeal to WASAE Members in the various member countries that we need to make more effort to revive WASAE. It is a noble institution with many golden opportunities to promote our wonderful profession. We need to work very hard to feed the sub-continent.

 

LET US COME TOGETHER AND PUT OUR SHOULDERS TO THE WHEEL.

 

Yours in Christ Jesus,

Musa.
