The President, Alhaji Dr. Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, on Tuesday 27th September 2005, inaugurated the newly completed Wilberforce Barracks Water and Sanitary Conditions Improvement project.
The Wilberforce Barracks, which is the largest Barracks in the country, constructed during the colonial period had suffered neglect and abandonment over the last few decades.

PRESIDENT KABBAH RETURNS FROM UNITED NATIONS GENERAL ASSEMBLY

President Kabbah at  high-level meeting of the 60th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York
The President, Alhaji Dr. Ahmad Tejan Kabbah, has returned to Freetown after attending a high-level meeting of the 60th session of the United Nations General Assembly in New York, from 13th to 16th September 2005.
In his address to the General Assembly President Kabbah said, "While we are preoccupied with institutional reforms, and while we acknowledge its weaknesses, we should not allow the controversies of recent years to drown the positive impact the Organization has made in the lives of millions of people throughout the world. Let us think about the tremendous work of UNDP, UNICEF, WHO, ILO, UNHCR, OCHA, FAO and other organizations and agencies of the United Nations system. This sixtieth anniversary of the United Nations is therefore a time to celebrate all that the United Nations has achieved and is trying to achieve.
One such achievement is in the area of peacekeeping. In three months' time the people of my country will be saying goodbye to UNAMSIL, the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Sierra Leone. UNAMSIL is obviously a success story. We must tell it. We must applaud it. UNAMSIL has made a significant contribution to peace and security in Sierra Leone, and to some extent to stability in the West African sub-region as a whole.
I am pleased to inform this august Assembly that the mission of UNAMSIL should be considered accomplished. With the assistance and cooperation of UNAMSIL and the British-led International Military Advisory and Training Team (IMATT), the Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces have now assumed their full constitutional responsibility for the security of the State".
President Kabbah also addressed the Columbia University's 3rd Annual World Leaders Forum in Connecticut

Delivering his last address as leader of the party during the convention at Makeni, President Kabbah extended profound gratitude to all those who supported him and insisted on him being the Party's flag bearer for the 1996 and 2002 elections. He stated that the successes which they achieved together are shared with all members of the Party.

Among other things he paid tribute to those who laid down their lives during the war to liberate the country and also remembered his late wife Lady Patricia Kabbah, as a great pillar of support in his ascendancy to the leadership of the party and subsequently to becoming President of Sierra Leone in 1996.
