With just under 4 months before the holding of General and Presidential Elections, President Ernest Bai Koroma in Sierra Leone has effected some administrative changes at the National Army and Police and Diplomatic Missions in Liberia, Gambia and Nigeria.
In a rather surprising move, the head of the country’s Army, Lieutenant General John Milton was replaced and appointed instead as the new Deputy High Commissioner to Nigeria.
He is being replaced by Major General Brima Sesay who was promoted last March to the rank of Major General by President Koroma.
A press statement from the Sierra Leone Presidency issued in Freetown on Wednesday also announced the replacement of the Police Inspector Francis Munu by his Deputy Richard Moigbe.
Mr. Munu now goes to neighboring Liberia as his country’s Ambassador.
All of the new Presidential appointees will have to obtain Parliamentary approval.
