53 year old Retired Brigadier Julius Maada Bio will be sworn in later today as the President-Elect of the Republic of Sierra Leone.

He is a father of 4, a graduate of American University and a Taurus. He is also an alum of the legendary Bo Boys Secondary School.

In 1996 he overthrew Head of State Valentine Strasser of the NPRC, in a counter coup. His supporters say he is the father of Sierra Leone’s democracy because after he became head of state, he handed over power within 3 months, paving the way for a return to civilian rule, and national elections.

President Elect Rtd. Brig. Bio will be Sierra Leone’s youngest to hold this office.

He is married to Fatima Jabbe-Bio, an actress of Gambian-Sierra Leonean descent.
