By Abubakarr Harding

Victor Bockarie Foh and Alhaji Alpha Kanu, Former Vice President and Resident Minister, Northwest Region and also Presidential Spokesman, respectively over the weekend thrilled the Sierra Leone People’s Party (SLPP) members and supporters in Sembehun 17 in Bo District.

The occasion was part of His Excellency President Brig (Rtd) Julius Maada Bio’s four days working visit to towns and villages in the Southern Region, engaging his people on his achievements since 2018 and warning young people against drug abuse.

Addressing a mammoth crowd in Krio, erstwhile Vice President, Victor Bockarie Foh, who served the then APC Government in that capacity said: “we like Maada Bio because he makes this country peaceful. Maada is a man of peace. If God gives me power, I will give Maada Bio the symbol of unity. All hands on deck. He changed the North, South, East and Western Area. What else do we want? Let’s vote for Maada Bio. We like Salone, we admire Maada Bio as our President. Anyone who wants development in this country should vote for Maada.”

In his speech at Sembehun 17, President Bio said the purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows, adding that a country where education is valued not as a formality but as a pride will never be poor.

He said it is on that conviction he has taken such a huge burden to massively invest in the children of Sierra Leone through education.

President Bio told the cheering parents and children that no other investment yields more dividends as investment in education.

He concluded that an educated workforce is the foundation of any community, country and the future of every economy.

The Resident Minister Northwest and also Presidential Spokesman, thrilled members and supporters of the SLPP and called on them to vote massively for President Bio on the 24th June, 2023 Presidential election so that he would continue with his development strides across the country.

Dr Kanu announced during his vote of thanks today after taking the oath of office before his Excellency President Dr. Julius Maada Bio. He is now Resident Minister North-West with a full cabinet position.

Dr Kanu compared his appointment to the King James Version of the Bible, “and he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” In the Matthew 4:19 verse, Jesus called upon Fishermen Simon Peter and Andrew to join him during the formative stages of his preaching in Galilee.

The new Resident Minister North-West recalled that during his confirmation in the well of Parliament, reference was made that there are 20 Alpha Kanu’s in the APC, he told President Bio that the authentic Alpha Kanu will serve the government of Sierra Leone with diligence and servitude.

“During the process of my confirmation in parliament, my colleagues said that they have over 20 other Alpha Kanu’s in the APC and wonder why they want this one, however, please note that in the North West, there is only one left-winger – his name is Alpha Kanu with the number AK11” said Resident Minister North West, Dr. Alpha Kanu

President Bio responded that he is pleased with Dr Kanu that he chose to serve his government. Dr. Alpha Sahid Bakarr Kanu is a mining engineer and graduated with a Master of Philosophy (M.Phil) in geophysics from the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom. He served in the previous Dr. Ernest Bai Koroma administration in the following positions – Minister of Information and Communications, Minister of Mines and Mineral Resources, Minister of Political Affairs and Adviser to the Presidency. He was also an elected member of the Sierra Leone House of Parliament representing Port Loko District from 2002 until 2007. During the 2018 elections, Dr. Kanu was a Presidential aspirant of the APC Party.

“Party chromatography should not be the deciding factor to support an individual you believe in .” Dr Kanu told Sierra News in Kambia over the weekend.

The Resident Minister of the East, Deputy Ministers of Health and Education and other appointees also swore the oath of office.


Hon. Alpha Khan is not a slave but a freeborn Says Dr. Sylvia Blyden

I respect Hon. Alpha Khan because he is not a slave but a freeborn. He is son of his parents. He does not hide to work with current regime.

Unlike those who pretend to be APC loyalists but secretly with @PresidentBio regime to misdirect APC grassroot supporters. Those are Slaves.
