Bassirou Diomaye Faye, the 44-year-old who recently had a landslide victory in the Senegalese election, became the youngest elected leader in Africa.

According to a previous BBC report, he was released just weeks before the election after spending months in prison and returned to win the poll.

The president-elect, who is set to become Senegal’s youngest president after swearing in, could shake up the political landscape and bring about transformative policies for the country.

Faye pledged a commitment to left-wing pan-Africanism and vowed to revisit gas and oil agreements as Senegal prepares to tap into newly found energy reserves.

On the inauguration day, Tinubu is expected to join other leaders of the West African bloc in Dakar, the capital of Senegal. The Nigerian president is the chairman of the Economic Community of West African States.

The statement reads in part:

“The President will be accompanied on the trip by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Yusuf Maitama Tuggar, and other senior government officials.”
