Burkina proposes to create "a federation" with Mali

The Malian Prime Minister, Choguel Kokalla Maïga, welcomed, on Tuesday January 31, 2023, at the international airport President Modibo Keïta Senou, his counterpart from Burkina Faso, Apollinaire Joachim Kyelem de Tambela. It was in the presence of members of the Government and administrative authorities of Bamako. The Burkinabe Prime Minister carries a message from Captain Ibrahim Traoré, President of the Transition of Burkina Faso, to his brother Colonel Assimi GOÏTA. “I left home in Ouagadougou, I came home to Bamako. Since the accession to power of President Assimi GOÏTA, Mali has been the pride of all of independent Africa,” said the Burkinabe Prime Minister on his arrival in Bamako.

The Prime Minister of Faso was already harboring the hope of coming to Mali which, according to him, has been the pride of all of Africa since Colonel Assimi Goïta came to power. “I left home in Ouagadougou, I came home to Bamako. Since the accession to power of President Assimi GOÏTA, Mali has been the pride of all of independent Africa. What our predecessors could not do, we have no right not to do or at least to attempt,” he said.

According to him, the opportunity for this visit was also offered by the walker Ibrahim Cissé who made the trip Bamako-Ouagadougou, the Burkinabe and Malian flags in hand and called the two countries to the Federation. This act will not be without follow-up, said Appolinaire Joachim Kyelem of Kambela. After his welcome at Bamako-Sénou Airport, the Burkinabè Prime Minister was treated to a dinner offered by Prime Minister Choguel Kokalla Maïga. “Beyond the courtesies, the Prime Minister of FASO was entitled to a series of information and above all advice on the process of rebuilding Mali in progress since the rectification of the Transition.

A Transition that inspires through its determination to restore the honor, dignity and sovereignty so desired by the people. Born following a popular insurrection, which served as a compass, the Malian Transition set out to make its own the deep aspirations of the people who thirsted for justice, security and freedom”, underlined the cell of communications from the Primature.

Thus, Choguel Kokalla Maïga will say, the vision and the patriotic commitment of the President of the Transition Colonel Assimi GOÏTA to restore the sovereignty of Mali gave hope to the people who supported the Transition as a unit against all odds. “The Transitional Authorities have chosen to ensure the security of the populations and their property by ourselves. This by giving priority to the armed and security forces in terms of investment and equipment. An army that recruits, trains, equips and fights at the same time. This rise in power now allows it to deploy in any part of the territory without asking for authorization or support from anyone. Today in Mali, fear has changed sides. We have no rivalry with anyone, we are against no one except those who do not respect the three principles that govern the conduct of public affairs in Mali. Principles enacted by Colonel Assimi GOÏTA, President of the Transition, namely: respect for the Sovereignty of Mali, respect for the strategic choices of Mali, taking into account the interests of the People in all decisions”, underlined Choguel Kokalla Maiga. Concerned and determined to succeed in the refoundation, Choguel Kokalla Maïga shared with his host of the day, the major actions underway in order to achieve fair and credible elections.

A vision that the Prime Minister of Faso fully shares, who suddenly invites us to pool our policies more to lay the foundations for the Federation, the word is not strong, indicates the Primature. During his 48-hour stay in Mali, the Burkinabe Prime Minister met yesterday, Wednesday February 1, 2023, with the Burkinabe community in Mali.
