Ten days after reviving these supraregional units, which have disappeared since 2014, he appointed RHDP barons, most of whom had resigned from the latest government, at the helm.

The only woman named “Minister Governor”, Hamed Bakayoko’s former Minister of Culture, Raymonde Goudou Coffie, is at the head of the Lakes District, in the central eastern part of the country. Unlucky candidate in the last election, she had not been retained in the government formed by Patrick Achi. Also in this case Moussa Dosso. The former Minister of Animal and Fisheries Resources had lost in the legislative election. But the winner died shortly after the election and led to a partial legislation that Moussa Dosso presented himself before withdrawing his candidacy. He was appointed head of Woroba.

The same case for the former Gruim Minister Jean-Claude Kouassi appointed Governor of the Bandama Valley District or the former African Integration Minister and former political companion of Albert ToikeusseMabri, Albert Flindé, Baron of the RHDP in the West, who takes the reins of the Mountain District. Other RHDP barons and former ministers were appointed, Philippe Legré of Bas Sassandra or Pascal Kouakou Abinan of Comoe. Their powers: manage major projects and manage government investment.

Alassane Ouattara’s goal is to ensure that his development program accelerates in the provinces and that the differences with Abidjan are reduced. “We want all projects to be monitored and implemented in order to be able to say by 2025 that Côte d’Ivoire has achieved its goals,” the Ivorian president said ten days ago, announcing in the Council of Ministers the reactivation of districts on the model of those for Abidjan and Yamoussoukro.
