Support for the Peace Effort: Four Associations Contribute 16 Million FCFA

Engaged in a merciless fight against the forces of evil, the Burkinabè are up to the task of recovering the integrity of the territory. And to overcome this struggle which requires significant resources, many do not fail to express their generosity. This January 8, 2024, it was the turn of the Professional Association of Tax Experts and Advisers, the Nationals of Burkina Faso in Séguéla to contribute.




Support for the transitional president’s call for contributions to the peace effort made it possible to raise around 99 billion FCFA in less than a year. A significant sum, according to the minister in charge of the economy, Aboubacar Nacanabo, who nevertheless emphasizes that the challenges for Burkina Faso to regain its former peace are still immense.

“Fortunately, based on the dynamics of current contributions, I allow myself to believe that the Burkinabè have fully understood the challenges of the moment. As proof, I want the quality and generosity of the various donors today. These acts, if they make it possible to add earth to the earth to build the edifice of peace, are above all manifestations of active solidarity and union necessary to transcend the courage and will of our people, to stand up , as one man, for the victorious march over cowardice and barbarism.”

Peace effort in Burkina supported by four more associations

“The government, through my voice, rightly salutes this outpouring of solidarity and thanks the generous donors,” suggested the secretary general of the ministry, Nicolas Kobiané, representing the minister.

“When the family dance is done on a plate, everyone has to put their foot in it” they say. For these donors from inside and outside, this outstretched hand to the motherland is a necessity given the crisis the country is going through.

“The country is in danger. And when the nation is in peril, all sons and daughters must unite and line up to help counter the enemy. We don’t have another nation. We only have one. One, which is common. We therefore had to make our modest contribution, to support the transition in this fight against terrorism,” suggested Saïdou Soré, member of the Revo Association let us think of others.

Same story for the nationals of Burkina Faso in Séguéla, in Ivory Coast, a “neighbor and brother” country of Burkina. “For the cause of our dear homeland, our elders, our leaders, our religious guides have delegated us to respond to the call of our valiant leader of the transition. In Ivory Coast, there are millions of Burkinabè of us. We may be far away, but we are with you,” suggested Oumar Kinda, spokesperson for the delegation.

Further afield, in Europe, it was the nationals of Garango and friends in Napoli who also wanted to show solidarity with their Burkinabè brothers. “We who are outside, more precisely in Naples, live in harmony with other ethnic groups and Italians. There are thousands of us there. And as sons of the country, we could not remain with our hands crossed in the face of this call from the president to save our country which is under attack, because it is a duty that falls to all of us,” noted Paulin Ouandaogo, member of the ‘association.

For its part, the Professional Association of Tax Experts and Advisers contributes in its own way to working for the recovery of State revenue and the implementation of tax legislation. No matter, she still did not fail to provide her support for the common cause. 

“The ideal would have been for us to join our brothers on the front, take up arms and repel the enemy. But unfortunately, not all of us are qualified for this. Early on, we responded by agreeing to contribute within the framework of the National Council of Burkinabè Employers. And individually, in our communities and in our different structures, we continue to take actions in this direction. We could not remain indifferent to the situation in our country which is shaken. Our country must once again become our proud Burkina of yesteryear,” said Adama Bitié, president of the said association.
