After inviting, on March 2, the International Organization of La Francophonie to participate in a technical assistance mission in Guinea, the Guinean electoral commission took the OIF by surprise by canceling its mission on the eve of the arrival of the experts in Conakry.
The plane tickets were reserved, and the device ready. But 48 hours before the arrival of OIF experts in Conakry, scheduled for Saturday, March 7, Amadou Salif Kébé, the president of the Independent National Electoral Commission (Ceni), backed down, canceling the mission initially planned.
In a letter dated March 5, addressed to the special envoy of the OIF in Guinea, Tiéman Coulibaly, Amadou Salif Kébé indeed notified the institution headed by Louise Mushikiwabo the “renunciation of the deployment of an IT expert” initially requested from La Francophonie.
"We had asked the OIF to send an IT specialist who took part in the previous technical assistance mission to the Ceni", writes Amadou Salif Kébé, before adding that "because of the implications of the mission letter from ECOWAS experts, this initial request from the Ceni can no longer prosper. "
