Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo achieves the world’s longest-serving president is back on the Presidential chair after securing 95% of votes of the re-election in Equatorial Guinea.
He has been in power gaining office from his predecessor and uncle, Franisco Macias Nguema in 1979 after the military takeover and has survived several coup attempts. President Obiang has a main aim on the oil-rich central African nation, making sure that that African countries are enriched from their home minerals being oil in Equatorial Guinea.
“The results prove us right again, we continue to be a great party,” said the Vice-President Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, the president’s son, said.
Some opposition candidates stood, but none were expected to win as political opposition is barely tolerated and severely hampered by the lack of a free press, as all broadcast media is either owned outright by the government or controlled by its allies.
