Under the presidency of the National President of the institution, Fortunato Nzambi Machinde, the Friends of Obiang Movement (MAO) met on 9th January, with the main aim of looking at matters related to the coup attempt against the Equatoguinean State and the President, H. E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo.
The meeting, which took place at the MAO headquarters in Malabo II, began with words of welcome and Christmas and New Year greetings, and a reading of the agenda, from the General Secretary, Anacleto Olo Mibuy.
Among the issues covered at the meeting were those related to the coup attempt aimed at destabilising the peace that exists in the Republic of Equatorial Guinea.
According to professor Olo Mibuy, MAO has decided to make a declaration of support and condemnation, with regards to these actions: No one likes to build and destroy, as in this case the destruction would be the destabilisation of the country, and the construction would be to continue the peace and renewal and a solution to the problems that always exist in a sovereign country”.
In his interview with the media present at the event, the MAO General Secretary pointed out that, When one has just cause, one cannot hide, and for MAO it is cause for a public declaration, so that the people understand these inconsistencies. We are aware that there are positions that can be amended, but we are condemning these erroneous attitudes and we are willing to take to the streets so that the world understands that there is total rejection of this type of action”.
At the same meeting, the Deputy General Secretary, Mariano Ebang, read the draft declaration of rejection, which was examined and amended by the executive, for subsequent approval in the next few hours. They also covered other issues related to the operation of the non-political institution, which dates back to the VII National Forum which took place in the District of Baney in 2913, among others.
The Friends of the Head of State decided to meet in the next few days to look at and cover other matters concerning the movement.
