ECOWAS Chairman Nana Akufo-Addo meets Mamady Doumbouya in Guinea

His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo who doubles as the President of the Republic of Ghana and the Chairperson of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is in the capital of Guinea, Conakry to have talks with the military junta that has overthrown President Alpha Condé’s government. President Akufo-Addo and his entourage were welcomed by the Guinean Military leadership led by Mamady Doumbouya.

The meeting is centered on how the military junta can help restore the democratic sanity in the Republic of Guinea and also negotiate on releasing the captured President Alpha Condé.

Before this meeting, the leadership of the West African Regional bloc on 16th September 2021 had an emergency meeting in Accra, Ghana, and deliberated on the two coups that have taken place in Mali and Guinea.

The Regional block resorted to sanctioning Guinea. All the heads of state in the bloc decided to freeze the financial assets and impose travel bans on Guinea’s junta members and their relatives, insisting on the release of President Alpha Condé and a short transition.

In a previous virtual meeting led by the head of ECOWAS, President Akufo-Addo reaffirmed ECOWAS’ objection to any unconstitutional political change.

“ECOWAS demands respect for the physical safety of the President of the Republic, Professor Alpha Condé”. We ask the Guinean defense and security forces to remain in a constitutional posture and express our solidarity with the Guinean people and their government,” it added.
