PDGE Tour 2015: Filled to the brim in Annobón

April 23rd, 2015 @ // Comments Off on PDGE Tour 2015: Filled to the brim in Annobón

posted by: equatorialguineaonline.com – April 23, 2015

The good health of the PDGE on the island became apparent when the auditorium of San Antonio de Palea was completely filled with militants who came to receive Jeronimo Osa Osa Ecoro and the delegation that these days tours the country in the 2015 Tour. Everyone applauded the Founding President’s decision, H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, to encourage base cells for their dedication, despite the current recession.

The authorities of the island came to meet the Secretary General of the PDGE, Jeronimo Osa Osa Ecoro, and other components of the 2015 Tour, which arrived on Monday, April 20, at the airport in San Antonio de Palea, on the Island of Annobon.

The representative of the president of the district council in the town summarized the current situation in the area, adding that the PDGE is the only party with roots in the island, which ensures and explains the situation of peace prevailing in the region. He also listed the main needs that the district has at present, such as the construction of the headquarters of the PDGE; improvements in water supply; finishing electrification; the construction of a supplier for the supply of fuel; a branch of the National Bank of Equatorial Guinea and a ring road to connect all the towns.

For his part, the Secretary General of the PDGE addressed all the militancy of Annobon to, first, introduce his new deputies, Jesusa Obono Engono Nchama and Fortunato Ofa Mbo, and explain the purpose of this tour as a working meeting with militancy in the area. He reviewed the important progress and development that has taken place on the island in recent years, as in the rest of the country, and also some of the problems that remain to be overcome.

The secretary explained that 2015, as a pre-election year, is an important moment of meeting and working with the militancy and that, in appreciation for the work done so far, the President has agreed that all the presidents and members of the base cell receive an incentive, which will be different and proportional according to their responsibility. Another novelty is that the heads of the base cells have an insignia that identifies them by their title, such as the sash that identifies those responsible for the municipalities, or the star that indicates traditional chiefs.

-“This incentive comes from the Founding President at a time when all oil producing countries are going through a serious crisis, which requires us to make significant economic adjustments to balance the scales depending on the income now obtained,”also said Jeronimo Osa Osa, and recalled that the incentive received by the chairmen and members of the base cells will be quarterly. “We are not paying for your belief because you have already proven it a long time ago; what we are doing is encouraging your dedication to the party, it is a motivation for you to work with more dynamism,” he added.

The next day, the tour team left Annobón to travel to Cogo, next on the itinerary.

The PDGE denounces another manipulation of Spanish television

April 21st, 2015 @ // Comments Off on The PDGE denounces another manipulation of Spanish television

posted by: equatorialguineaonline.com- April 21st, 2015

The Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea (PDGE) states, in the words of its Secretary General, Jeronimo Osa Osa Ecoro, its emphatic expression of protest regarding the documentary broadcast on Spanish public television, TVE2, titled “The Paradox of Plenty”. Below we reproduce fragments of his message and the full text is attached to this article.

“The PDGE wants to alert the Spaniards of how their media manipulates them and hides the reality, in a country where it is assumed that the freedom and transparency of expression is the Law. What I present here is our real history, and not what they have seen  in this documentary, as in many others:

For centuries, Europeans and Americans kidnapped and killed our ancestors. (…) For decades, the settlers were the masters of our possessions and the masters of our lives. (…) When they gave us our ‘independence’, they left us at our mercy. During the dark years, no one came to help, and even less to provide information. (…)

Obiang called a Spanish oil company, but they said there was no oil in Equatorial Guinea. (…)

Our people were hungry, so despite the negative outcome of the Spanish studies, our President Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, called another company, in this case, a small US company, which in less than a month found in our subsoil one of the largest oil reserves throughout Africa. (…)

Our democracy was born within our own tribes. But the Spanish TV still has no idea. Traditionally, the African election and representation system and that of Equatorial Guinea is not the same as that followed in Spain. Our political form of organization emerges from the representatives who are already elected in the same villages, clans and tribes. A very interesting system that nourishes our democracy from the family structure itself. (…)

Equatorial Guinea is the largest consumer of Spanish beer, but the Spaniards still think that there is hunger here. Our prosperity is why Equatorial Guinea now has the highest rate of arrival of migrants from Africa. It is also the reason why Equatorial Guinea is the largest buyer and importer of Spanish beer. (…)

We know what the objectives of media such as Television Española are when manipulating, as always, the history and information given on Equatorial Guinea:

One, maintain supremacy and the colonial vision of Western Europe that treats black Africans as inferior, undeveloped and, therefore, remains beneath them.

Two, create instability and conflicts within our society, which is now rich in energy, in order to destabilize it (…)

Finally, we send a new recommendation to Television Española: given that the argument of the documentaries on Equatorial Guinea, which they have made for decades, are always the same and do not change a bit (although our country has changed much since then and is not the same), we believe this Spanish channel should not spend any public money, that of all the Spaniards, in making any more documentaries.

Signed:

Jerónimo Osa Osa Ecoro
Secretary General of the Democratic Party of Equatorial Guinea”

Expansion of the information from the Council of Ministers

April 14th, 2015 @ // Comments Off on Expansion of the information from the Council of Ministers

posted by: equatorialguineaonline.com – April 14th, 2015

Last Friday, April 10, the President of the Republic, H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, presided over the Extraordinary Council of Ministers in which the remodeling of the government was announced. During the meeting, issues were also taken up such as the economic recession and State security.

13/04/2015

After the meeting of the Council of Ministers, the Minister of Information, Press and Radio, as the Spokesman of the Government, Teobaldo Nchaso Matomba, expanded to the communication media on the subjects discussed in this council meeting, which had the presence of the First Vice President of the Republic, for Presidential Affairs, Ignacio Milam Tang; the Second Vice President, for State Security and Defense, Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue; the First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior and Local Corporation, Clemente Engonga Nguema Onguene; the Second Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Education, Lucas Nguema Esono Mbang and Third Deputy Prime Minister for Human Rights, Alfonso Nsue Mokuy.

State Ministers, Vice Ministers and Delegate Ministers also attended the Council of Ministers. The Head of State, H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, inaugurated the meeting that, according to the agenda, had three subjects to discuss: the remodeling of the Government; the need to make efforts in putting into practice measures to alleviate the economic recession, and the need to adopt strategies to improve the security of our country.

On the issue of remodeling the Government, the Minister of Information, Press and Radio and Spokesman of the Government, Teobaldo Nchaso Matomba, ensured that the Head of State stated that it dealt with timely changes, that were due to the new dynamism necessary so that the Government remains active, stating that the destination of public servants, such as soldiers, can be changed at any time, since the posts or destinations are not permanent.

“We have achieved a level of development that surprises our own people and foreigners, and this development cannot stagnate, we must work more to continue advancing,” said Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, who also expressed his disagreement with the form in which some members of the Government direct the ministry departments under their responsibility.

In relation to the economic recession, H.E. Obiang Nguema Mbasogo assured that the drop in oil prices has affected our economy, and it is necessary to control expenditures and improve revenues; however, he recalled that there were departments that had extravagant expenditure proposals for an economic context of recession.

On the subject of security, the Head of State advised the adoption of measures to improve it, a task that involves all the Equatoguineans. “The instability in Africa and the mistrust of those that do not like the development of Equatorial Guinea constitute the fertilizer for the destabilization plans of our country”, affirmed the President of the Republic and, to avoid them, he asked them to be vigilant in view of these maneuvers and be able in this way give an adequate response.

Furthermore, during the council meeting, Obiang Nguema Mbasogo gave guidelines to the Government on the work to improve the economic results and fight against corruption, and also referred to the necessary contribution of everyone to the economic development of Equatorial Guinea. He also asked the members of the Government for greater involvement in order to overcome the economic recession and the security challenges that many African countries are facing.
