AFRICA, Central African Republic, PAN AFRICA, POLITICS, PRIME MINISTER
Firmin Ngrebada on Thursday resigned as prime minister of the Central African Republic along with his entire cabinet. Ngrebada was made prime minister in February 2019. He had served as President Faustine-Archange Touadera's chief of cabinet before the appointment.

Indeed, millions of Nigerian children continue to be left behind and their rights denied, because they still lack access to good education, adequate nutrition and quality healthcare, not discounting those caug...
