I would want to caution that whatever difficulties there are bordering on this relationship, we desist from going public until the relationship is orderly mended. It is not impossible. Let us urge ourselves to handle the matter thoughtfully to prevent potential state embarrassment. Investor appetite for Sierra Leone is still lukewarm. It is strongly advisable to bring both companies to the table for resolution and avert any subsequent legal entanglements.”
