The people of Burkina Faso have unanimously appoint Captain Ibrahim Traore, the leader of the Burkina Faso second coup in 2022 , as the new transitional President.

This development was made public on Friday during a press conference of over 300 delegates that cut across Burkina Faso top military brass, political parties and civil society organisations at the country capital Ouagadougou.

The leaders of the military junta Traore, proposed a transition programme that was in line with that of his predecessor Paul-Henri Damiba who took over power in January, with a promise of restoring Democratic rule by 2024, but lacked the political will to tackle the rising insecurity situation in the country.

The people of Burkina Faso are in search of peace and stability and a return to constitutional rule, which have eluded them following inter-ethnic conflicts fuelled by terrorists groups linked to al Qaeda and Islamic state. The insurgent activities have devastated the West Africa country, leaving trails of horror, with millions displaced.

The war torn country have witnessed two coups within this year. The first was the January coup lead by Lieutenant-Colonel Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba, and the second coup lead by Captain Ibrahim Traore, who over throw his predecessor in a counter coup on the 30 of September, on the premise that the authorities were failing to do enough against the jihadists who are terrorising and plundering the country sides.
