                «<em> Energy, I have plenty of it! </em>»This is what Ali Bongo declared to the Pan-African weekly <em>Young Africa</em>.  The Gabonese president broke a very long silence that he had observed since his stroke in October 2018. It was <em>Young Africa</em> that he chose to speak for the first time. 

                                    <p><em>With our correspondent in Libreville,</em> <strong>Yves-Laurent Goma</strong>

The interview is very long, 4 pages. Ali Bongo talks about everything including his health. ” I’m fine. I even increased my pace of work. I can’t wait to be 100% of my ability again He replied.

AT his opponents who wonder on his ability to lead Gabon, Ali Bongo replied: “ Rather, I would advise them to work on formulating ideas. To be content to criticize and to argue is to go completely astray ».

For Ali Bongo, his son is ” extremely competent »

It also comes back to his son Noureddin Bongo Valentin whose appointment in December 2019 to the post of General Coordinator of Presidential Affairs had sparked controversy. Ali Bongo is sharp: “ Noureddin, in whom I obviously have complete confidence, is extremely competent. He assists me on a daily basis, ensures that my instructions are properly executed and follows up on them ».

Accused of being shunned by France since coming to power in 2009, Ali Bongo recognizes that under François Hollande’s mandate, relations have not always been very fluid. But with Macron, “ we share, he said, the same desire to have bilateral relations nourished, appeased and, I would say, modernized ».
