State House Timber Deal… $5,500 per Container

Report reaching New Age indicates that Patrick Koroma, CEO CFS, who also doubles as the man authorized by State House to export over 5,000 containers of timber is receiving $5,500 as commission per every container export.

This, our findings reveal, is likely to seeing him milking billions and billions of Leones as at the completion of the export just like that.

The deal has been described as the latest of a bad deal by the ruling APC and has seen state house contracting him (Patrick Koroma) to export over 5,000 containers of raw timber, therefore increasing climate change risk in Sierra Leone.

Even though the New Age has proven that Office of the President has not officially removed the moratorium on the export of raw timber, confirmations are that state house was key to the award of such a bad concession to the named businessman.

That the order to have synergizing ministries the likes of Agriculture and Trade authorize Patrick Koroma export raw timber at the expense of society came direct from the state chief of staff.

This, of course, was confirmed in a telephone interview with the state house COS, Konton Sesay, who claimed government has approved the shipment of over 5,000 containers of raw timbers.

Though asked whether such order came from the express permission of the President, he (Konton Sesay) keeps away from making any comment but said, “you should talk to the President on that.”

Information reaching desk of the NEW AGE revealed how the state house COS wrote to both the Minister of Agriculture and Minister of Trade instructing them necessarily authorizes the export of containers of timbers to Patrick Koroma.

The surprise however was when Agriculture Minister, Prof. Monty Jones, in an attempt extricating himself from the deal, dyed-in-the-wool as he said “the order to export 5,000 containers of timbers came not from my ministry nor Trade but state house.”

He further also confirmed that the moratorium on timber was slammed by no less a person but the President, and has not been lifted.

That three people were given concession in 2016 to export timbers, but two have been dropped with Patrick Koroma scarcely permitted to do so.

Patrick, in an interview, confirmed he has been given the concession to export over 5,020 containers of unprocessed cut timbers, said: “it is probable the amount of raw timbers in bushes countrywide far outweigh the one approved for exportation”

Continued: “it was a concession authorized by State House on the recommendation of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Food Security.”
