Nouakchott,  07/10/2019
The President of the Republic, His Excellency Mohamed Ould Cheikh El Ghazouani, has reiterated his desire to make education the top priority, insisting, in this context, on the importance of the republican school in the preservation of the national cohesion and the need to give all the sons of the country the opportunity to benefit from a quality education, with justice and equity and without any discrimination.
The President of the Republic, who was answering a question from the Mauritanian News Agency [AMI] about his impressions while he was supervising the opening of the 2019-2020 school year, added:
"We all agree that education is the only way to acquire science and knowledge and that it is also the only way for the progress of societies and the development and prosperity of countries.
I have expressed more than once the interest that I give to this sector, starting from my deep conviction of its importance. And today and on the occasion of the new school year I renew this, affirming my will to make it the priority of the priorities.
I chose to say that to the pedagogical family and to the Mauritanian people in general from this school.
I would like to take this opportunity to call on the pedagogical family: teachers, students and of course parents, administration, local communities and civil society, to work, each of us from their position, to develop this sector within the framework of a republican school as an institution capable of preserving our national cohesion and giving all the sons of the Mauritanian people the opportunity to go to school without discrimination and with justice and equity.
I call on education officials to redouble their efforts to achieve this goal. I personally want to assure them that the government will spare no effort to complete this action."
