It is worrying by most African writers and observers to see and witness particular leaders staying on political seats for more than necessary terms or years in office ageing up without any remarkable improvements or achievements of their people as well as their countries.

At glance to Equatorial Guinea, as at 2020 population census is estimated at 1,402,985.

With this current population, His Excellency Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo who was born on 5th June, 1942 is their incumbent President.

This politician has been the 2nd president of Equatorial Guinea since August 1979. He ousted his uncle, Francisco Macías Nguema in a military coup that took place in August, 1979 and has overseen Equatorial Guinea’s emergence as an important oil producer, beginning in the 1990s.

Mr. Obiang was Chairperson of the African Union from 31st January, 2011 to 29th January, 2012. president of equatorial

Indeed, he is the second longest consecutively serving current non-royal national leader in the world.

Mr. Obiang has been widely accused of widespread of human rights abuses, corruption and power abuse as well.

In marked contrast to the trend toward democracy in most of Africa, Equatorial Guinea is currently a dominant-party state, in which Obiang’s Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea (PDGE) holds virtually all governing power in the nation.

Their constitution provides Obiang sweeping powers, including the right to rule by decree, effectively making his government a legal dictatorship.president of equatorial

In fact, president of Equatorial Guinea, the Incumbent, assumed office since 3rd August, 1979 to date.

Meanwhile, his first wife, Constancia Mangue Nsue Okomo who was born on 20th August, 1951 and also known as Constancia Mangue de Obiang, the First Lady of Equatorial Guinea, has the First Vice President Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue as their first son.

Surprisingly, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue who was also born on 25th June, 1968, nicknamed Teodorín, is the Vice incumbent President of Equatorial Guinea. He has been in office since 2012. He is a son of Teodoro Obiang, the President of Equatorial Guinea by his first wife, Constancia Mangue.

Matters to discuss are many for Africans since political inheritance is eroding the grace of Africa and progressive development, the continent is lacking in all sectors for development in almost all states and regions of Africa.

An African youth is bleeding and crying for better leadership!
