According to him, Africa must make the extra effort to ensure our elections are very transparent because that is how we can develop as a continent.

He added that Sao Tome and Principe recently experienced a seamless election and he is very proud of that.

His words, “There is no question at all that for those of us in Africa, we must make the extra effort to ensure that the democratic process is very transparent. It is such a pleasure to see that that was what took place in your country which led to your election.”

“We already talked about some of the areas of cooperation…your tenure might be an opportunity to bring some of those things to fruition.”
