Guinea is a West African country with substantial mineral resources that can easily sustain the entire population in comfortable living conditions. However, due to the lack of educational infrastructure and good textbooks, only some people in the country understand the economy or supply chains. Sadly, these few qualified people must be in the correct position to guide their country’s leaders. Corruption runs rampant, and the country’s leadership has no interest in national development. They occupy their time with illegal detentions of activists, journalists, and critics. A nation that should have the GDP of Spain languishes in utter poverty due to the greed of corrupt politicians.
Lord, release Your Powerful warring angels with great authority to win the battle against demonic forces controlling Guinea’s corrupt political and military junta establishments (The Bible, Revelation 18:1).
Guinea, relatively a peaceful country, is jolted by the coups. Incumbent Mamady Doumbouya is the president since 1 October 2021. Incumbent Bernard Gomou is the prime minister since 17 July 2022. Experiments with socialism and a two-year rule by a junta have taken their toll on prospects for development. The 2010 election ushered in a decade of civilian rule but led to violent ethnic clashes as well. In addition, hundreds of thousands of refugees from Liberia and Sierra Leone have strained Guinea’s struggling economy. The instability has generated suspicion and ethnic tension – as well as accusations between neighbors of attempts at destabilization and border attacks. Muslim converts to Christianity fear family reactions and harassment by the extremists.
