Having served in several capacities in the Ernest Bai Koroma’s All People’s Congress (APC) administration, Aljhaji Alpha Khan, has again been appointed by President Julius Maada Bio as Strategic Adviser on Social Mobilisation and Food Security, Covid 19 response team.

Alpha Khan is a senior member of the main opposition APC and he has held several positions  including the National Publicity Secretary and he is member of the highest decision making body of the party-the National Advisory Council.

In 2007, he was appointed Minister of Mines and Mineral Resources, a position he held until after 2012 when he was appointed Minister of Public and Political Affairs.

He was again appointed as Minister of Information and Communications and later Ambassador at Large and Adviser to former President Koroma.

Meanwhile, his appointment by President Bio attracted mixed feelings, with some SLPP loyalists referring to it as a demonstration of national cohesion by the president, while others, especially sympathisers of the APC referred to it as a booby trap to set him up and get him detained like Palo Conteh. 

However, the APC party could not take any position on the appointment as at press time on Saturday and it was unclear whether Alpha Kanu accepted the offer.
