The General Overseer of Flaming Evangelical Ministries International has been recognized by the Commonwealth University.
Bishop Frederick Abu Sidique Koroma received the Doctor of Humanities Honoris Causa in March this year, having complied with all the requirements of the faculty of the university.
The Man of God also received a Master Class Certificate in Leadership and Management from the London Graduate School.
These recent awards would be among other national and international awards already received by him during the past years because of his work, especially in providing food for the needy, orphanage facilities to many children and offering deliverance to many Sierra Leoneans, both at home and abroad.
Bishop Abu Koroma told a presser at his office yesterday that he was delighted to have received such an award from one of the world’s best known universities.
“I felt honoured to be singled out among the lots to receive such an award without any lobbying. I am also gratified that my work is not only limited in Sierra Leone but overseas as well,” he said in a joyous mood.
He stated that when he started his religious work way back in 1979, he had a vision of transforming lives, which should not only be limited to Sierra Leone, adding that he was running pragmatic ministry that is ministering the word of God.
“We dedicate our services to humanity. We offer scholarships to pupils in primary and secondary schools and students in universities and colleges,” he noted.
Also speaking was the Dean, Faculty of Social Sciences and Law at Fourah Bay College, University of Sierra Leone, Dr. Danton Bendu, who stated that Bishop Koroma is not discriminatory at all in offering his religious and charitable services.
“He has impacted all of us. He has contributed immensely to religious and socio-economic development of this country. We are happy that his efforts have not been dumped,” he said.
A thanksgiving service to celebrate Bishop Koroma’s recent recognition has been slated for this Sunday, where he would be decorated by academic gurus.
