On July 14th, the Maréchal of Chad, Idriss Deby Itno, President of the Republic, Head of State, redesigned his government and I was entrusted with the Ministry of Women and Early Childhood Protection. I express my deep gratitude to him for the trust placed in my humble person.
I measure responsibilities and expectations.
Beyond the causes I will defend, that of women and children, it is Chadian youth that I represent, so the challenges are enormous. And I plan to lift them up with all the humility, dynamism and creativity it takes.
Many of you have congratulated me and I have tried to respond to more, but if you haven’t had a return, rest assured, it’s not for lack of respect.
The noblest causes have always been my passion and I’m counting on you to help me make things move more.
