Guinea’s Prime Minister, Mohamed Fofana, on Thursday January 16th 2014 resigned his appointment and his government before President Alpha Conde at the Sekhoutoureya presidential palace in Conakry.
Fofana told the media after the meeting that he had officially handed over the resignation of his government.
“This morning, the President came to his office and chaired a cabinet meeting organised for that particular reason,” the outgoing PM reportedly said.
Also, he verbally appreciated the members of his cabinet for the work they had done in the last three years.
“Obviously as I said earlier, in any human activity, there are always actions which succeed and others which fail. But generally, I am satisfied with the efforts put in by the outgoing members of the government,” Fofana said.
The resignation of the Guinean government was not unexpected, especially after President Conde’s recent announcement of the need to restructure his governmental team.
