Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, the world’s longest-serving leader, was sworn in as Equatorial Guinea President for a sixth term on Wednesday. The 80-year-old has been in power since 1979, when he overthrew his uncle in a bloody coup. He is one of Africa’s most controversial leaders, accused of human rights abuses and corruption. However, he has also been praised for his country’s economic growth and for bringing peace to a region that has been plagued by conflict.
Speaking at his inauguration ceremony in Malabo, President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo vowed that as long as he remains in office, he will do everything in his power to ensure that the people of Equatorial Guinea are able to live prosperous and fulfilling lives. Obiang, who has been in power for 40 years, pledged to continue his efforts to improve the country’s infrastructure and to provide its citizens with access to education, healthcare, and other basic needs. He also reaffirmed his commitment to making Equatorial Guinea a more stable and democratic country.
The ceremony began after a military parade attended by top officials and a host of foreign African leaders. President Obiang promised the full implementation of outstanding projects, as well as to eradicate corruption and maintain the Central African country’s unity.
President Obiang praised the nation’s peace and stability, as well as the sustainable development that he said was taking place. He noted that the country was making great strides in many different areas, and that it was poised to continue its upward trajectory. Obiang expressed confidence that the nation would continue to prosper, and that its people would enjoy a bright future.
Obiang said that the statistics showed that the people had always supported his candidacy. He noted that he was currently in the 43rd year of his tenure as president, making him the world’s longest-serving head of state. Obiang said that he was confident that he would continue to have the support of the people and that he would be able to serve them well in the years to come.
‘Another historic and unforgettable day’
Obiang has been in power since 1979, when he overthrew his predecessor Francisco Macias Nguema in a coup. Since then, he has been the de facto leader of Equatorial Guinea, overseeing its transformation from an impoverished dictatorship to a wealthy oil state. However, his rule has been largely characterised by human rights abuses and corruption. In recent years, Obiang has come under increased pressure from both inside and outside the country to step down from power.
The results of the presidential elections in Equatorial Guinea were released days after the polls closed on November 20. The results showed that incumbent President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo won an overwhelming victory, receiving nearly 95 percent of the vote. With a population of just over 2 million people, this means that Obiang received the support of almost all of the country’s eligible voters. This is a remarkable feat, and it is clear that Obiang remains a popular and respected leader in his country.
The National Electoral Council has announced that the Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea (PDGE) has won all 588 seats in municipal councils, as well as all 55 seats in the Senate, and all 100 seats in the Chamber of Deputies. This is a significant victory for the party, and it is likely that they will be able to maintain control of the government for the foreseeable future.
Despite being the third-largest oil exporter in sub-Saharan Africa, according to the World Bank, the vast majority of Equatorial Guinea’s population is currently living below the poverty line. In recent years, the country’s economy has been diversifying away from its reliance on oil exports, but this has not yet translated into improved living standards for the majority of its citizens. While the government has been investing heavily in infrastructure and other development projects, much more needs to be done to reduce poverty and improve the quality of life for all Equatorial Guineans.
Equatorial Guinea is one of the most closed and authoritarian countries in the world, with its international relations marred by corruption, according to Amnesty International. The country’s human rights record is among the worst in the world, with reports of arbitrary detention, torture, and executions. Freedom of the press is severely restricted, and the government controls most media outlets. Internet access is also heavily restricted. The country has a long history of human rights abuses dating back to its days as a Spanish colony.
Today marks another historic and unforgettable day in the annals of Equatorial Guinea, as President Obiang is sworn in for another term. The PDGE is confident that he will continue to wisely guide our country and its people in the years to come. We wish him every success as we work together to build a bright future for all Equatorial Guineans.
The election results are in and, once again, President Obiang has come out on top. It’s been another disappointment for the opposition, which said during the election that the people “need a message of hope” different from what has been conveyed by Obiang’s rule. However, it seems that the people have spoken and, for better or for worse, they want Obiang to remain in power.
