The sudden demise of such an icon, who served diligently the Senegalese nation for over four decades is not only an immeasurable loss for the Republic of Senegal but the entire African continent and beyond.
Mr Diatta who has served four Senegalese Presidents, from Leopold Sedar Senghor, Abdou Diouf, Abdoulaye Wade and lately His Excellency President Macky Sall respectively, was an epitome of excellence, professionalism, competence and efficiency. He shall forever be remembered and shall remain a symbol of Senegalese diplomacy and excellence.
