Guinea’s Minister of National Unity and Citizenship, Khalifa Gassama Diaby, has handed in his resignation from the government, criticising it for not living up to expectation.
“For personal reasons, I decided to resign as Minister of the Republic,” Diaby wrote in a statement following his decision to quit on Wednesday, 14 November 2018.
“When you realise that the struggle which motivates you every day, is the least concern and obviously not a major priority neither for the government to which we belong, nor for the national political actors, nor in the political and institutional community, the only option left is resignation.”
“It is with a heavy heart and a sad soul for my country and the humanistic and democratic values that I defend, that I have arrived at this inevitable and indispensable decision,” he wrote.
Thanking President Alpha Conde for giving him the chance to serve his country in a ministerial capacity, Diaby expressed gratitude to all political actors, civil society watchdogs, the media and citizens who supported him.
This is the first time a minister has resigned from the Guinean government since 2012.
