President Doumbouya french should not continue as our official language.
Guinea Conakry President Mamady Doumbouya preferably opted to renounce French as an official language, which shall only exist as a working language. This resolution transpired in a report following an inter-Guinean discourse that witnessed the attendance of considerable political decision-makers.
This option shall be validated just for formalities that shall authorize suggestions for the Government to have an executive opinion in elevating national languages.
DERIVING OUT OF FRANCOPHONIE STOPPING AT AFROPHONIE
Precisely after a month, a Francophonie summit was conducted in Tunisia, during which the need to elevate the French language in the world was discussed.
The settlement to prohibit French as an official language in Guinea is therefore at probability with the Francophonie forecast. While it is the reality that in the sub-Saharan section this subject has never been approached too unequivocally on the institutional level, the vast majority of African inhabitants are persuaded that French is part of the colonial vestiges and that the promotion of languages by African women is an important step.
How shall this decision by Guinea unroll? Shall the rest of the neighboring African countries act in accordance with Conakry?
