Burkina Faso celebrates its 60 years of independence on Friday on the theme: “National cohesion and patriotic commitment for a sustainable development of Burkina Faso in a context of insecurity and Covid-19”.
“This is a collective challenge for a Burkina Faso resolutely turned towards the sacred union of its daughters and sons, to face current challenges and ensure our country’s security, health and economic and social development,” President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré said in a message to his compatriots.
“The achievement of such ambitions, for which I am committed with you, necessarily requires a change in mentality and behaviour,” he said.
For Mr Kaboré, the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the country’s independence is an excellent opportunity to salute the memory of the founding fathers of the nation and pay a vibrant tribute to the people for their resilience and commitment to the Fatherland, social cohesion and shared development.
