The Guinean Military Leader Col. Mamady Doumbouya will arrive in Freetown today on a one-day bilateral state visit.

According to reliable diplomatic sources, the Guinean military strongman will be received by a high-powered delegation comprising senior Government officials including the IGP and CDS at the border town of Gbalamuya, Kambia District.

They will later head for State House in Freetown where both Heads of State will hold bilateral discussions on the peace and tranquility of both sister countries.

It would be recalled that on Monday, 11 October 2021, President Julius Maada Bio departed Sierra Leone for Conakry, Guinea on the invitation of the Military Head of State, Colonel Mamady Doumbouya.

During the one-day working visit they discussed security co-operation issues between the two neighbouring countries, the restoration of constitutional order in the Republic of Guinea and the ECOWAS democratic transition roadmap.

It should be noted that although the Republic of Guinea was suspended by ECOWAS from all Community activities due to the military coup, ECOWAS member states are not prevented from engaging the Republic of Guinea on bilateral issues.

The Guinean Head of State will depart Freetown for Guinea today, at the end of his one-day working visit.
