The President of Equatorial Guinea, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, is among the favorites. The other three potential winners are Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni; from Rwanda, Paul Kagame and Senegal, Macky Sall

The Ambassador for Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Denmark, Carmelo Nvono-Ncá, fervently supported the candidacy of President Obiang, for which he went to The Hague (Netherlands) for a meeting with the director of the magazine ‘The Voice’, Pastor Elvis Iruh, representing of one of the most influential publications of the African diaspora in Europe.

Throughout the meeting, Nvono-Ncá was able to expose the various achievements completed by President Obiang, both at national and international level. Likewise, the Ambassador has exposed the pan-American and humanist nature of his interventions while recalling the integrity and courage that animates the African president.
