Cro Jimmy Hails Illustrious Son Gibril Sesay as Minister of State
Cro Jimmy, a small community sandwiched by Fourah Bay in Freetown has celebrated the 'Home Coming' of an illustrious son.
Dr Mohammed Gibril Sesay (pictured) has been identified by President Ernest Bai Koroma to serve as Minister of State 1 in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation in a recent Cabinet reshuffle.
Platinum Media was not part of the Home Coming event at the East End of Freetown but information gathered revealed that the people of Cro Jimmy were in high spirits celebrating another milestone in the political life of man whose intellect has immensely contributed to the development of Sierra Leone.
The unassuming guy but extraordinarily smart academic was prior to his appointment, head of the Research Unit at State House.
He is undoubtedly one of the finest presidential speech writers of our time. His unquestionable loyalty to President Koroma coupled with his solid belief in the ideologies of the ruling APC has earned him the reputation of a master dribbler who can handle both academic and political careers with unpunctuated ease.
An insatiable appetite to contribute to education has seen him enviously managing his busy schedule for a part-time teaching role at the University of Sierra Leone.
The home coming event at Cro Jimmy was reported to have attracted thousands of residents who marveled at the traditional "bubu" dancing skills of our new Minister of State - a show of cultural attachment to his native Port Loko, the home of Bubu.
According to one observer, Gibril Sesay is another player long needed to take the field to help score those match winning goals in the Prosperity Football League ably captained by President Koroma, the political Messi.
