Selom Komi Klassou has taken office as Togo’s new Prime Minister on Wednesday, June 10, 2015 after a handover ceremony.
Klassou in his inaugural speech stated that he will do his very best to take inspiration from former Prime Minister Ahoomey-Zunuway who has found a solution to satisfying the needs of Togolese people.
He further disclosed that he expects a full implementation of the political program that helped Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe secure a third term in the general elections in April this year.
“The people are in expectation, and we now have to get to work,” Klassou stated.
President Gnassingbe appointed Klassou on Friday, June 5, 2015 to succeed Ahoomey-Zunuway, who had tendered his resignation on Friday, May 22, 2015 to emerge the new Prime Minister of Togo.
Prime Minister Klassou is one of the key leaders of the ruling union for the Republic of Togo and has been the Senior Vice-President of Togo’s National Assembly since 2007.
