Benin: after J-B Elias’ unpacking, Abdoulaye Gounou puts his finger in the beehive
On Sunday, September 15th, on a local radio station, the president of the national anti-corruption authority, Jean-Baptiste Elias, made serious revelations about the latest parliamentary elections. Abdoulaye Gounou, a Republican Bloc member, reacts and talks about intoxication.
For those who know Jean-Baptiste Elias, he is of this race of man who only speaks when he has evidence of what he wants to advance. Last Sunday, on Soleil Fm, he pointed out the deficiencies that could have led to the invalidation of all the electoral lists by the electoral commission. For the man who fights corruption in all its forms, Emmanuel Tiando, president of the National Autonomous Electoral Commission, laid the groundwork for the electoral violence observed in April-May 2019. He took the opportunity to reveal the quality of the lecturing MPs. Which didn’t please more than one.
If Orden Alladatin preferred the path of wisdom by asking Jean-Baptiste Elias to help them calm their fervour rather than set fire to the powder keg, Abdoulaye Gounou, certainly unaware of the man he was dealing with, challenged the civil society activist. He dismissed the allegations and insisted that it was intoxication. Jean-Baptiste Elias, certainly aware of this reaction, will soon be back on track with the Republican Bloc member.
But until the man from all the files of the Republic comes out to definitively shut up this law school teacher, the Honourable Basile Ahossi has already pointed out that Abdoulaye Gounou’s wife is one of the people working in ministries and who must be discharged after the revelations of Jean-Baptiste Elias. Perhaps other tongues will untie in the next few days to spread the things that were once hidden .
