President Ernest Bockarie Foh has appointed veteran APC politician Victor Bockarie Foh (seen on the left in photo with President Koroma) as the country’s new Vice President.

Victor Foh, who, until today’s appointment, has been Ambassador to China, is one of the prominent leaders in the ruling party to hail from the south of the country.

Foh, a seasoned political strategist and grassroots politician, was the party’s Secretary-General before his appointment as Vice President.

He has been an unflinching and unwavering loyalist to the party for decades.

Here is the press release from State House:
