John Bairoh, Chairman, APC Finland Chapter, on behalf of APC Branch/Chapter in Finland congratulated the appointment of Ambassador Victor Bockarie Foh by His Excellency the President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma to be the Vice President of Sierra Leone.
“Well done on a deserved appointment!” he said. “We see your appointment as a clear demonstration of President Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma’s recognition of your hard work, loyalty, dedication to party and commitment to the national service you have rendered to our nation. The action of our President also illustrates APC is not a party for one region or ethnic group in the country; it is for every Sierra Leonean.”

“We have followed with interest the great work you have rendered to our country and the APC party. You have been a full member of the APC party since 1970. You have worked with many members who regard you as an obedient and loyal person to the party. You have worked as an assistant Secretary General for the APC, and in this position you worked with His Excellency Edward Turay High Commissioner to the UK and former Secretary General of the APC who have high opinion of your work for our party. You also held the position of National Secretary-General of the APC for over 10 years in which you demonstrated courage and perseverance,” he noted.
He said Mr. Mohamed S. Bangura, Chairman of APC Germany Branch and European Alliance in the Diaspora who has high regards concerning the credentials of Ambassador Foh for the party explained the great work the newly appointed vice president has done for the party in the south of Sierra Leone.
“This gentleman (Ambassador Foh) has held different positions promoting the party in the area during his tenure of office. I believe what he said because I have worked with him as he continues to expand APC Diaspora in Europe. For example, the Finland chapter/branch would not have happened without his commitment,” he said.
Explaining the tremendous work for the Nation, he cited as an example, his excellent job as civil servant while working as Assistant District Officer and District Officer in the South, North and East of Sierra Leone (Kabala, Port Loko, Bonthe, Bo, Kono, Kenema, Kailahun and Kambia).
“I can recall one of your visits to Makeni while working as a District Commissioner you attended a meeting at the Provincial Secretary’s Office; during that trip you also visited my late parents who had high regard for you and also mentioned the work you had done for the party in the South. You know the country very well, you did not only work with bureaucrats but also with Paramount Chiefs, Section Chiefs, Local Administrators, Resident Ministers, and Members of Parliament who are very close to our people in helping running local and government administrations,” he told this press.
