The Minister of Microfinance and Social and Solidarity Economy took part today in Kaolack, in the triennial general assembly of the coordination of the diocesan unions of Catholic Women’s Associations of Senegal. Victorine Anquediche Ndeye, in her speech, expressed her feelings as a woman, a Christian who has chosen to go into politics. “…I feel the charge and the responsibility entrusted to me, by His Excellency the President of the Republic, Macky Sall, to be at the exclusive service of our fellow citizens. May God guide each of my steps. You understand the feelings that animate me in being here by your side and having to speak at this moment, therefore, I can only favor the expression of the heart to share with you the loneliness that I can often feel in the path borrowed.

I will be a devoted faithful, who will be at your side in the noble undertakings that the Coordination of Diocesan Unions of Catholic Women’s Associations of Senegal will carry out.
Before concluding: “To conclude, I wish you excellent work and recommend that you carry forever in the priesthood the return to the faith of our children who, in these troubled times that our society is going through, are manipulated by wolves while the divine word is sweet and full of truth. May God bless you and bless Senegal, our beautiful country!” To recall that the opening ceremony of the triennial general assembly of the coordination of diocesan unions of Catholic Women’s Associations of Senegal which is currently being held in Kaolack, recorded the presence of the Bishop of Kaolack, Monsignor Tine…
