Death of Agbeyomé Kodjo, after that of his godfather Mgr Philippe Kpodzro – TOGOTOPNEWS- Reliable and constructive information in just one click

The opponent and former prime minister, Gabriel Messan Agbeyomé died in the night from Saturday to Sunday in exile. A death which comes a few weeks after that of his godfather Mgr Philippe Kpodzro who supported his candidacy during the 2020 presidential election.

Born in Tokpli, in the Yoto prefecture, in 1954, Agbeyome Kodjo graduated in organizational management from the University of Poitiers in January 1983. He was for more than six years general director of the autonomous port of Lomé.

In June 1999, he was elected president of the National Assembly. A little over a year later, Kodjo was appointed Prime Minister on August 29, 2000. He succeeded Eugène Koffi Adoboli.

In September 2005, after a moment of exile, he formed a new party, the Democratic Alliance for the Fatherland with Dahuku Péré. Later, in 2008, he created his own party, the Organization for Building in the Togolese Solidarity Union (OBUTS) to run in the 2010 presidential election.

On January 6, 2020, Agbeyome Kodjo was nominated as a candidate for the February 2022 presidential election under the group of political groups Dynamique Monseigneur Kpodzro (DMK). He occupied second place when the results were announced (18.37%) behind President Faure Gnassingbé (72.36%). A result that he always contested until his last breath.
