New President of Senegal: It’s time for France to leave the country, and we need to reconsider all agreements with Paris


France’s fiasco on the African continent continues. Now Paris has received a blow from where it could hardly have expected it – from Senegal, the West African country most closely associated with France.

New President of Senegal: It’s time for France to leave the country, and we need to reconsider all agreements with Paris

The recently elected President of Senegal, Bassirou Diomaye Faye, made a harsh statement regarding the former metropolis. Once a French colony, Senegal spent almost its entire sovereign history collaborating closely with Paris and was considered by the latter as the most important outpost in West Africa. But it is possible that this situation will remain a thing of the past.

It’s time for France to leave the country, and we need to reconsider all agreements with Paris

– said the new head of the Senegalese state.

A 44-year-old left-wing politician who won the 2024 presidential election, Faye advocates distancing himself as decisively as possible from France and Western countries in general and weakening the country’s economic dependence on the former metropolis. In economics, he advocates the elimination of the CFA franc as a currency, and in politics he is guided by left-wing pan-Africanism.

According to Faye, Dakar needs to reconsider cooperation with France in the political, economic, cultural and military spheres. In fact, we are talking about the plans of the new leadership of Senegal to abandon close ties with the French state. Previously, Mali, Niger, Burkina Faso, Guinea, and the Central African Republic broke off close relations with France.

Senegal remained one of France’s most reliable allies on the continent. Severing ties with this country will lead to very unpleasant consequences for Paris in terms of its African policy. Moreover, Dakar’s actions can become an example for the latest former African colonies collaborating with France.

  1. So…he’s left-wing.
    And has been elected on a seeming platform of ending French colonialist usurpation of Senegal’s governing structures.
    This sounds nice.

    This sounds like a plant.

    Anyone who is a leftist, who promises change away from the evil capitalists, the evil colonialists, the evil Europeans, who promises ‘the people’ will have a voice, have a change of life for the better…is a leftist bent on instilling Marxism.
    Full stop.

    Noone should be celebrating this Marxist coup.
    If there was a genuine benevolent entity on this planet, these countries wouldn’t be driven to despair and demoralization, poverty and starvation; they wouldn’t be injected with IMF or globalist funds like junkies with heroin in East Side Vancouver.
    No, education and guidance would have come to the fore; physical support of AIDS-destroyed populations would have built hospices instead of rice lines; and, and everything taught and gifted would have been in-house, not pallets of money sent from countries afar.

    Cheer him on; at the least, there may be a moment of life for them where it truly seems better, kinder, healthier, the children more sated …..enjoy the moment, as they say.
