There are many countries in West Africa where French is an official language. These countries are known as Francophones and are a result of French colonial rule in region.

I've made a list of these countries, along with their corresponding capital cities and the presidents of each nation (current at the time of writing).

Hopefully this is what you're looking for.

Republic of Congo:

Capital: Brazzaville  President: Denis Sassou Nguesso

Ivory Coast:

Capital: Yamoussoukro    President: Alassane Ouattara

Cameroon

Capital: Yaoundé    President: Paul Biya

Guinea

Capital: Conakry    President: Alpha Condé

Togo

Capital: Lomè      President: Faure Gnassingbé

Chad

Capital: N'Djamena      President: Idriss Déby

Niger

Capital: Niamey      President: Mahamadou Issoufou

Senegal

Capital: Dakar      President: Macky Sall

The following map shows the division of colonial rule in Africa:

Most of the nations under French rule gained independence in the late 1950's.
