The Youth Consulate Forum in Senegal (FOJCOSEN) yesterday, Friday in Dakar, the official launch of the consumer information guide. The meeting focused on national advocates to raise consumer awareness. Several topics related to energy, sanitation, health, transport, education, economics, pollution, the environment were on the agenda.
The chairman of the Senegal Consumer Forum (FOJCOS) regretted the difficulties facing rural populations, including the high costs of electricity bills. In this regard, he asked that the latter urged this population to benefit from counters "woyofal" as the big cities.
Another point addressed by the FOJCOS, the issue of water management in Senegal. The Administrative and Financial Officer of the Senegal Young Consumers Forum has solemnly asked President Macky Sall to suspend the lease agreement on water management granted to SUEZ until after the presidential election on February 24, 2019.
For Seydou Guisse, given the current context of the discussion of suspicions arising from the award of this contract to Suez, it is incomprehensible that SDE largely managed Senegalese and responded to the technical and financial offers not being retained. Senegalese Des Eaux proposed an offer with available water prices compared to Suez and Veolia. As a consumer organization, Fojcosen SDE wants to be renewed for water management in urban areas in Senegal.
Seydina Mame Alassane Laye Sow pointed out that the Consumer Information Guide is a platform that allows young people to better understand economic patriotism to try and promote the national economy. She will also meet people to embrace them with what is happening in the world. This guide will be published weekly or monthly.
