The incumbent President of the Senegal National Olympic and Sports Committee (CNOSS), Mamadou Diagna Ndiaye, was re-elected for a new four-year tenure on 1 July 2017, during a General Assembly session organised at the Leopold-Sedar-Senghor Stadium, Dakar. With no challenger for a post he has held since 2006, he was re-elected by acclamation. Mamadou Diagna Ndiaye had devoted his previous mandate to capacity building within the NOC and national sports federations. After his re-election, he once more emphasized his commitment to serve sports and its practitioners. His moral report reserved a choice place for his commitment to transparency. He also expressed enthusiasm for good governance in sport. “I have always insisted on the importance I accord to transparency and traceability of our actions and our finances. We cannot do otherwise. Governance is on the global agenda. To demonstrate our commitment, we have hired the most renowned national consultancies to make a periodic and exhaustive analysis of our finances,” he said.
It should be noted that the renewal of confidence in Mamadou Diagna Ndiaye and his team is consequent on the remarkable job they have been doing on the field with positive outcomes. The dynamism displayed by this team on a daily basis has stabilised the Olympic movement in Senegal, which can now focus fully on promoting sport and Olympism in the country.
