Chairman of the APC Germany Branch and European Alliance, Mr. Mohamed Bangura has commended President Koroma for the appointment of Ambassador Victor Bockarie Foh as Vice President of Sierra Leone.


The swearing-in ceremony attracted ministers, parliamentarians, government officials and diplomats last week at State House in the capital Freetown.


Mr. Bangura described the diplomat turned Vice President as a diehard supporter of the ruling APC party pointing out that President Koroma has chosen someone who has a wealth of experience to assist him in the day-to-day administration of the country.


“We are supporting the newly appointed vice president for the fact that both President Koroma and Vice President Foh will work together assiduously to continue the ongoing infrastructural and socio-economy development of Sierra Leone,” he informed.


He pointed out that VP Foh has work hard to bring back the APC party into power under the leadership of President Ernest Bai Koroma, noting that majority of the APC membership appreciated the appointment of Victor Foh to the second highest office of the land.


Chairman of the APC Germany Branch and European Alliance recalled that since he took over as Chairman of the APC Germany branch and European Alliance, his relationship with the Sierra Leone diplomatic missions across Europe and Asia including the Sierra Leone Embassy in China where Ambassador Foh served diligently has been very cordial, adding that the aforementioned ambassadors and high commissioners have so far been supportive in strengthening the party both locally and internationally.


Mr. Bangura noted that Vice President Foh has demonstrated his commitment to the party and the country in particular when he said, “I am so happy for the appointment of Victor Bockarie Foh and I believe he will work hard towards the President’s developmental agendas including the agenda for prosperity.”


The APC Chief emphasized the need for unremitting efforts in order to build up the gains his party has so far made after seven years of governance.


He stressed that other party members in the Diaspora should emulate the good work of Ambassador Victor Foh who is now our new Vice President of Sierra Leone.


He reiterated his engagement with his party members across Germany and Europe, in what he called, “The establishment of more chapters in various parts of Germany and Europe, for a formidable and dedicated force.”


“We are making every effort to form many branches in Germany and Europe. This is because we want to bring everyone onboard and work towards the interest of our country,” he said.


Mr. Bangura has called on all Sierra Leoneans to put aside tribal and ethnic sentiments and work towards developing the country’s economy and infrastructure.
