Julius Maada Bio – Sierra Leone
Former opposition leader Julius Maada Bio was sworn in as Sierra Leone’s president in April after winning the March election runoff.
It was his second attempt at the presidency as a civilian years after he ruled the country briefly as the head of the military junta. Bio took over from President Ernest Bai Koroma, who served two terms in office.
