President John Dramani Mahama on Wednesday received the outgoing High Commissioner of Sierra Leone to Ghana, HE Osman Foday Yansaneh, at the Flagstaff House to announce the end of his tour of duty.

HE Osman Yansaneh who spent a total of 8 years in Ghana thanked the President and the people of Ghana for the tremendous assistance and support Ghana continues to offer Sierra Leone.

He mentioned President Mahama's personal involvement in the quest to help the country tackle the Ebola outbreak, peacekeeping services and the excellent services many Sierra Leoneans receive when transferred to the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital for referral services.

President Mahama in his remarks encouraged Ambassador Yansaneh to remain a good ambassador of Ghana wherever he goes, describing relations between Ghana and Sierra Leone as a very fruitful one.

Mr. Mahama noted that Ghana's intervention in the fight against the Ebola Virus has today yielded good dividend for countries like Sierra Leone, which has been declared Ebola free.
