 The new President of Niger, Mohamadou Issoufou, has named Brigi Rafini, a Tuareg, as Prime Minister. M. Rafini is a former member of the Niger National Assembly, as well as the former Mayor of  Iferouane, in the Air Massif.

Brigi Rafini, pictured here, at right, meeting with RAIN’s program assistant, Mohamoud Mouta, is a good friend of RAIN.

This picture was taken in 2009, when Mr. Rafini was Mayor of Iferouane.  I took the photo during one of the regular meetings between the Mayor and RAIN, discussing ways to collaborate to improve development in the region.

We are pleased to congratulate Mr. Rafini on his new post and look forward to continuing our fruitful collaborations.
