News in translation: Blaise Compaoré’s Farewell Statement on Twitter

Posted by dumpendebat

The president of Burkina Faso, Blaise Compaoré, resigned office today. The latest information seems to indicate that he has fled to Ghana, although the situation in Burkina Faso is very much in flux at the moment; news and rumors are breaking fast.

This evening, Compaoré issued something of a farewell statement on Twitter. I went ahead and translated it into English for the benefit of those who are interested but don’t read French.
