The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the People’s Republic of China to the Republic of Sierra Leone His Excellency WANG Qing has confirmed a courtesy call he will pay on Wednesday, September 7th at 10 am to the Management of the University of Management and Technology (UNIMTECH) at Kissy Dockyard in Freetown.

The Ambassador’s visit is in response to an invitation to the Chinese Embassy by Prof Osman Sankoh (Mallam O.) who recently joined UNIMTECH as Deputy Vice Chancellor for Administration, responsible also for Research, Innovation and Development. Mallam O. intends to showcase UNIMTECH as a shining example of private investment in the tertiary education sector to augment the Government’s efforts to provide quality tertiary education to the people of Sierra Leone.

It will be recalled that Prof. Sankoh’s strides for institutional transformation have been demonstrated at Statistics Sierra Leone (Stats SL) where he was Statistician-General and CEO for 5 years and at Njala University where he was simultaneously the Acting Vice Chancellor and Principal for 1.5 years.

It is worthy of note that the Chinese Embassy provided support to both Stats SL and Njala University during Prof. Sankoh’s tenure.
