Following the military coup in Burkina Faso, the military junta selected lieutenant colonel Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba as the country's provisional President.

Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba is a Burkinabé military colonel who leads the Patriotic Movement for Safeguard and Restoration (MPSR), which deposed President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré in the 2022 Burkina Faso coup d'état on January 24, 2022.

Paul-Henri Sandaogo Damiba has been declared as the President of which country?


On January 24, 2022, a military takeover headed by Damiba occurred in Burkina Faso. President Roch Marc Christian Kaboré & Prime Minister Lassina Zerbo were removed from office, and the parliament, cabinet, and constitution were proclaimed null and void. Burkina Faso, one of the world's poorest and most violent countries, is grappling with a terrorist onslaught that has claimed over 2,000 lives and driven 1.5 million people to abandon their homes. The nation has been excluded from the West African organization ECOWAS, but it has avoided penalties with the reinstatement of the constitution last week.
