The President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is expected in Guinea “as soon as possible” to personally transmit the decisions of the extraordinary summit of the West African bloc to the military junta.

During the extraordinary summit of the supreme body of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in Accra on Thursday, September 16, sanctions against members of the junta in Guinea and Mali were imposed.

It was also decided that the president of the Authority would go personally to Conakry to convey the messages to the military leaders.

“[The heads of state] also, of course, reaffirmed ECOWAS’ firm commitment to work and help Guinea in this process of restoring the constitutional order.

“They insisted also on the close support of traditional partner the United Nations, the African Union, European Union and also other bilateral countries and they also decided that there will be a visit by the Chair of the Authority to the Republic of Guinea as soon as possible to convey those messages regarding the decision of the Summit personally.”
