The first APC Diaspora Biennial Tour started in November, 2013 and then included the UK , Germany , Holland and the USA .


The objective of the tour as envisioned by H. E. President Koroma is to make a biennial assessment tour of the APC Diaspora which is growing in leaps and bounds , address issues and concerns affecting them and to put executives in place by election or selection that would serve for 3 years .

 

6 candidates for the position of branch Chairman standing with Leonard Balogun Koroma APC National and International Elections Coordinator and Diaspora Coordinator

 

The election / selection process is in conformity with the enduring December 5 , 1995 constitution of the APC party .

 

The conventions saw a mix of voting by the aspirants in the UK and Ireland branch , voting by the accredited delegates in Germany , elections by consultations in Holland , Belgium and Canada and voting by the 16 Chapter Presidents in the United States of America .

 

Phase 3 will cover Australia , China and the official launching of APC Scandinavia covering Sweden , Norway , Denmark and Finland .

 

The Chairmen of the 6 diaspora branches covered are as follows ;

 

UK/ I branch - Comrade Mustapha Koroma

 

Germany branch - Ahmed Salim

 

Holland branch - Simon Sesay

 

Belgium branch - Abdul K Kargbo

 

Canada branch - Mohamed Son Samura

 

USA branch - Unisa Kanu

 

The conventions were preceded by massive registration drives in all the branches resulting in a significant increase in the partys diaspora branches with a corresponding increased fund raising capacity .

 

Since 2012, and with the appointment of a Diaspora Coordinator , the APC has inevitably catapulted itself into a truly globalized party with new branches and. chapters emerging all over the globe .

 

The APC Diaspora Coordinator Forums founded by the Diaspora Coordinator , Leonard Balogun Koroma have proved to be a vibrant means of communication between APC Diasporas worldwide and has galvanized the partys growing global membership .

 

 

Having successfully completed this phase of the diaspora tour , the delegation is looking forward to embarking on phase 2 which will cover the APC African diaspora countries of Guinea , Liberia , The Gambia , Nigeria , Ghana and Addis Ababa .

 

Phase 3 will cover Australia , China and the official launching of APC Scandinavia covering Sweden , Norway , Denmark and Finland .

 

 

APC members in Paris , Spain and Italy are also working and preparing for the official launching of their branches .

 

With the near conclusion of the APC Diaspora Tour and conventions  , arrangements are being put in place for the holding of regional , constituency and district party conventions culminating in the national delegates convention to be held at a date , time and venue to be determined by our party chairman and leader , His Excellency Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma .
