Osinbajo off to Accra for ECOWAS summit

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will participate in an extraordinary summit of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government in Accra, Ghana today.

A statement by Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice President, Mr Laolu Akande, said Osinbajo will be representing Nigeria as the West African regional body will be deliberating on the political situation in Burkina Faso, Mali and Guinea.

The meeting, which is coming as part of the resolutions reached at last week’s virtual meeting chaired by Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo, will review the report of the ECOWAS delegation despatched to Quagadougou to meet with the military junta who recently seized power in Burkina Faso.

The summit will be attended by regional leaders who will be considering imposing additional sanctions after the country was suspended from the regional body last week.
