ONS Abdulai Caulker; A Gem in Sierra Leone’s security sector !


By James Andersen

Mr. Abdulai Caulker is a seasoned security sector personnel with over 22 years of experience in the security sector of Sierra Leone unmatched to any security personnel in the country.

Without any gainsaying, Abdulai Caulker is one of the very few founding members of the Office of National Security (ONS), who played a significant but pivotal role in talent-spotting by recruiting the current crop of senior Directors at the ONS.

With an exemplary educational background, Mr. Caulker holds a Master’s degree in Educational Administration and has several professional certificates, including, amongst others, in Security Sector Reform, Personnel Administration and Management, Human Resource Development, Trade Craft, Agent Targeting, National Security Coordination and Management of Emergencies, Investigating Techniques and Research Methods, Ethics and Integrity, Policy Analysis, Conflict Analysis and Mediation, Early Warning and Early Response, Educational Law, Management and Administration.

Mr. Caulker has contributed immensely to ensuring that the ONS remains very strong thereby able to provide strategic leadership for the security sector of Sierra Leone.

Such contributions have accounted for ONS quota, in a very special way, to the governance and democratisation process of Sierra Leone.

Mr Coker has remarkably worked with several development as well as donor partners including UNDP, DfID, ADB, IMATT, ISAT among others and possesses the ability to facilitate grants on-behalf of Government and to oversee the successful implementation of targeted projects for sustainable development and national security.
