THE SLP MOVES IN THE DIRECTION OF DIVINITY
The Sierra Leone Police (SLP) is blessed with not just a leader but a Visionary Leader who believes in the divinity of God.
The Sierra Leone Police has been stewarded by several inspectors general with different leadership styles and objectives; but the leadership style of the present Inspector General of the SLP, Dr. Ambrose Michael Sovula is distinct from his predecessors in the sense that he allows the Al mighty God to direct, guide and lead him through his management and leadership style.
It’s against that backdrop that he was able to professionally and spiritually convinced his Executive Management Board to think divinely and spiritually through which the Sierra Leone Police will “spiritually grow”.
First in the history of the SLP to organize a national “divine Thanks-Giving service” for its personnel.
The practicalization of the present IGP’s divine inspiration came into manifestation on Friday 28th January 2022 at the SLP’s Masjid, Kingtom where prominent and dignified personalities including the Minister of Energy and Power, Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Deputy National Security Coordinator, the IGP and team, Deputy Director of Correctional Service, head of the National Fire Force, and heads of other institutions were present to thank God Almighty for taking the SLP to this far.
The replication of thanking God Almighty by personnel of the SLP was done on Sunday 30 January 2022 at the St. Paul II Quasi-Parish Church, Regent – Grafton Highway where His Excellency President Dr. Julius Maada Bio joined personnel of the SLP to thank God.
Addressing the congregation (which comprised of ministers, the Mayor of Freetown and reps. from MDAs and civil society organizations and the Fourth Estate), His Excellency the President Dr. Julius Maada Bio said he was very pleased to be part of such a remarkable event.
In a very frank and sincere mood, the President applauded our IGP for such a Godly initiative, to bring the rank and file of the SLP together to show gratitude to God Almighty.
In a very short but “touching statement”, the Inspector General of Police, Dr. Ambrose Michael Sovula who was excitedly excited, said “this Thanks-giving” will continue and it will be done annually.
He called on his EMB members and the rank and file of the SLP to “believe and trust in God”.
