After more than five years as Equatorial Guinea Consul General in Cotonou, Leandro Ebang Miko Angue bid farewell to the Benin Government, in two audiences which took place on 7th December.
The first meeting was with the Minister for Foreign Affairs in Cotonou, Aurelien Agbenonci, and the second was with the Minister for Culture, Tourism and Sports, Oswald Omeky.
At the two meetings, Ebang Miko Angue reported that his mission had come to an end, and that he had been promoted to Extraordinary Plenipotentiary Ambassador to the Republic of Chad.
Accompanied by the vice-consul, Joaquin Obama Esono Nchama, he asserted that he had had a marvellous mission in Benin, and did not want to conclude his words of farewell without expressing his sincere gratitude to the State of Benin for the support provided, which had allowed efficiency in carrying out his functions, and for the peaceful coexistence shared during the six years.
For their part, both the Minister for Foreign Affairs and for Culture in Cotonou praised the Government of the Republic of Equatorial Guinea, overseen by H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, for the deserved promotion of Leandro Ebang Miko Angue, and asked that this series of promotions never ceased, taking into account that, during his six years in Cotonou, he has been a dynamic, pan-African diplomat, full of patriotic spirit; a diplomat who speaks of his country with conviction and determination, with constructive ideas capable of uniting nations.
On concluding these audiences, the Government of Benin declared it would pay tribute to the departure of Leandro Ebang Miko Angue on Monday 10th December.
