ACCRA, GHANA: Leaders of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) gathered in Accra, the Ghanaian capital, Saturday, hoping to find a solution to the political situations in Mali, Guinea, and Burkina Faso.

Opening ECOWAS’ 6th Extraordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government, Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said he hoped ECOWAS would find a lasting solution to the emerging political instability occurring in the subregion.

“In dealing with these unfortunate matters, our objective has always been to find ways to help those countries return to constitutional order,” said Akufo-Addo, who is the current chairman of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State.

He stressed that the return to constitutional governance in these three countries would help deal better with their prevailing security and humanitarian challenges.

“This should be in line with our resolute commitment to upholding democratic government and democratic institutions in the ECOWAS space, as enshrined in our protocol on good governance,” Akufo-Addo said.

He said the summit would, therefore, reexamine and assess the situation in Mali, Guinea, and Burkina Faso in light of recent developments within the regional and global contexts which affect the subregion, and take the necessary decisions.
