Permit me to observe all other protocols. The fact that this task is daunting cannot be overstated, but the fact that I have to accept the challenge is also an expression of the obvious. Strives have to be made to achieve enviable results and that is where I am grateful to the leadership of the Inspirational Leadership Movement (ILM) global, Sierra Leone chapter for organizing this all important seminar. 

Ladies and gentlemen, this morning, I have been tasked to speak on the topic ‘’the factors responsible for the decline of genuine academic competitiveness and how can our educational honour be restored?’’
