Osinbajo Attends Inauguration Of Sierra Leone’s President

Published by TOPNEWS

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has left Abuja to attend the inauguration of President Julius Bio in Freetown, Sierra Leone.

According to a statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity to the Vice President, Mr Laolu Akande, on Saturday, May 12, 2018, Prof Osinbajo is expected to leave Abuja later in the evening.

President Bio won the Country’s Presidential run-off on March 31, 2018.

It was reported that the Presidents of Guinea, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Senegal, Burkina Faso, and the Gambia have been confirmed to attend the ceremony.

Also on the lineup is a list of Nollywood stars from Nigeria, among them Omotola Jalade Ekeinde, Mercy Johnson, Osita Iheme of Aki and Paw Paw fame, as well as John Okafor, better known as Mr IBU.

The Nigerian music sensation, Davido, is also billed to attend.

The new Sierra Leonean First Lady, Fatima Bio, who is herself into showbiz, is believed to be the host of the artists with whom she had worked with, in the film industry.

There will be Government delegations from other Countries outside Africa, notably the U.S., where President Donald Trump last week named a delegation headed by the head of Peace Corps to fly to Freetown to partake in the event.

The inauguration comes a little over a month after Bio was sworn into office following his electoral victory on March 31.

The occasion also coincides with the 56th birthday anniversary of the President.
