In a controversial dispute over the control of Artp and Internet marketers in Senegal, it was reportedly posted on the post at the National Assembly on Wednesday, November 28, at the occasion of the voting session of the budget of the ministry of the Communication, the Télécommunications, the Postes et de l'Economie numérique.
