Sierra Leone’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Ambassador Michael Imran Kanu, has on the 15th August, 2023 taken his formal leave of President Bio.

He thanked President Bio for giving him the opportunity to serve the country at the global body and assured the President and the nation of an effective and efficient performance and tenure at the Security Council in New York.

He was Sierra Leone’s Deputy Permanent Representative for Legal Affairs at the UN, where, as part of the team, was able to ensure the delivery of President Bio’s commitments and promises to the people of Sierra Leone.

In his remarks, President Bio congratulated him on his appointment and expressed confidence in what he is capable of doing as this is not his first time working with the UN.

“Our foreign policy has to be shown out there. As a nation, we are very conscious of the fact that the world is in a state of flux, with too many things not in their right places. So, International peace and security are very much on our minds,” President Bio stated.
