He gave this charge when he hosted Sima at the Presidential Palace in Libreville shortly after announcing the appointment.

Under Nguema and Sima, the country intends to draw up a new constitution, drafted with representatives from all the key groups, which they say would be more respectful of democracy and human rights and submitted to a referendum.

Sima, a 68-year-old Paris-educated economist, served as prime minister under Bongo from 2012 to 2014 before becoming a critic and competing against him in the 2016 and 2023 presidential campaigns.
