And there is this fabulous and ambitious grassroots development program plan, that is to say the development of the 145 territories…”, decided the President of the Republic.

Only the people have the decision.

And to conclude: “We are convinced that things, when the time comes, will be appreciated by our compatriots and they will renew their confidence in us. So there’s really nothing to worry about there. »

Me, I live on a daily basis and I listen to my compatriots and try, as far as possible, to meet their needs, their demands. The rest belongs precisely to this people. It is he who will decide when the time comes who can preside…” he concluded. ACP/Kayu/HBB/KAI
