According to President Juluis Maada Bio, who is a retired Brigadier, “I am saddened about your sudden departure, because you have contributed in advancing both bilateral and multilateral cooperation between Nigeria and the Republic of Sierra Leone in particular and the World in general.

“Diplomat, you will be leaving behind a very big vacuum as you end your tour of duty and I hope your successor will build on your sterling achievements.” Said President Maada Bio.

In his response, High Commissioner Henry Omaku said, “I come to the presidential palace to formally notify you and bid you farewell at the end of my successful tour of duty as a Diplomat from Nigeria to Sierra Leone.”

He disclosed that the citizens like consuming a meal mixed with cassava leaves.

He said that their are over three thousand registered Nigerians living in Sierra Leone

On his plan when he settles down in Nigeria, the Diplomat said, “As a public servant, a business and now a Diplomat, I have gained more experience at the global level for me to continue making more developmental sacrifices for national and international upliftment.”

The Diplomat calls on Nigerians to respect each other irrespective of ones class and background to support the Renewed Hope Initiative of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration for the betterment of our beloved nation, Nigeria.

It could be recalled that, Amb. Henry John Omaku was assigned by former President Muhammadu Buhari in 2020 as Nigeria’s High Commissioner to the Republic of Sierra.
