Gabon’s national dialogue: A ray of hope for country’s future after coup

President Nguema urged the dialogue participants to engage in frank, controlled, and productive discussions with the goal of building a new Gabon based on strong institutions

The Inclusive National Dialogue (DNI) commenced on Tuesday (2 April) at the Palais des Sports et de la Culture in Libreville, Gabon’s capital city.

The national event was aimed at acknowledging the creation of a new governance of Gabon since the coup that took place on the 30 August 2023 shortly after Ali Bongo Ondimba was declared president of Gabon just four days prior.

The Bongo family had ruled Gabon for half a century, and the coup came a month after the coup in July, which occurred on the 26 July, 2023.

The transitional president, Brice Clotaire Oligui Nguema, and the Central African President and facilitator of the Economic Community of Central African States(ECCAS), Faustin-Archange Touadéra, were in attendance.

From 2 to 30 April, over 600 individuals, divided into commissions, will discuss various topics related to the economy, sociopolitics, culture, finance, and institutions.

The goal is to establish a solid foundation for a renewed Gabon equipped with stronger institutions.

In his speech during the national event, transitional president General Brice Clotaire Oligui Nguema paid tribute to the victims of the 2016 post-electoral crisis before discussing the inadequacies of previous national consultations held between 1990 and February 2023.

He welcomed the massive participation of people from all provinces of the country, including the diaspora, and emphasized the meeting’s historic and decisive nature.

President Nguema urged the dialogue participants to engage in frank, controlled, and productive discussions with the goal of building a new Gabon based on strong institutions.
