What we know about Sonko’s “resignation”

The announcement of the resignation of the mayor of Ziguinchor, Ousmane Sonko ended up making the rounds on social networks in the early evening of May 4, 2024.
Our attempts to see more clearly allowed us to know that none of the municipal authorities of Ziguinchor is able to officially confirm this resignation.

”We see so far on social networks the announcement of the mayor’s resignation, but until the moment I speak to you, he has not notified us of his resignation to concentrate on his position as Prime Minister.” , explained on condition of anonymity, a deputy mayor of Ziguinchor.

Further on, a municipal councilor specifies: ”Ousmane Sonko has notified his resignation to the minister responsible for local authorities, who in return has one month to respond. Until then, Ousmane Sonko’s resignation has not been effective. If he accepts, his first deputy takes over as interim officer while waiting to call the vote of municipal councilors to elect a new mayor.

We’re waiting to see what happens next,” adds our Source, who happens to be a potential successor to Ousmane Sonko.

Remember that the Minister of Labor, Employment and Relations with Institutions, Mr. Yankhoba Diémé, publicly announced his resignation from the Presidency of the Departmental Council of Bignona, this May 3 in Bignona.
