ECOWAS Heads of State meet physically in Niger, for the first time in months

(Togo First) - The ECOWAS Heads of State met today in Niamey, Niger, for the Community’s 57th ordinary summit. 

This is the first time in months that the leaders gather physically, after holding virtual meetings, due to the covid-19. During the summit, they will discuss the region’s political, economic, and security situation. 

The heads of state will specially discuss the situation of Mali which was already the subject of two extraordinary summits (held by videoconference). 

Another topic is the succession of Niger’s President Mahamadou Issoufou as the head of the ECOWAS, replacing the Ghanaian Nana Akufo-Addo.

Let’s recall that in preparation for the current summit, the ECOWAS security and mediation council met on Sept.4 2020. On this occasion, State members’ ministers of foreign affairs, including Togo’s Robert Dussey, discussed upcoming elections in Burkina Faso, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Guinea, and Niger.
