Guinea’s President Alpha Condé has said that his candidacy for President is because of young people and women.

The 82-year-old, has accepted to seek a third term in office in the upcoming elections,  decision that sparked protests.

But he said he is the best candidate for young people and women, hailing women particularly as important pillars in society.

He was speaking during a video conference with female political activists on Wednesday.

The ruling party nominated Conde following the passage of a new constitution that now allows him to extend his rule.

A referendum to change the constitution sparked protests that led to several deaths.

His critics said the change of the constitution was to ensure that Conde runs again as President.

Alpha Condé in June this year said that he was very fit and able to govern his nation.

In a radio interview following rumors of his absence from public scene, Condé said “I assure the Guinean people that I am as fit as a fiddle and I am sure I will bury many people who wish me dead.”
