Togolese capital to host this year’s Entente Council Summit

(Togo First) - Lomé will host the next Entente Council summit. The organization’s executive secretary, Marcel Amon-Tanoh, confirmed the news last Friday, Jan 20, after an audience with Togo’s President, Faure Gnassingbé who happens to be the current chair of the Entente Council summit. 

When they met, Amon-Tanoh presented President Gnassingbé the annual report of his activities since he was elected as executive secretary of the Entente Council.

"I gave the President of the Republic, Faure Essozimna Gnassingbé, current chair of the Conference of Heads of State and Government of the Entente Council, an update after one year of activities. We talked about the reforms, as well as the decisions that the Heads of State of the Council will have to take during the next Conference of Heads of State which will take place in Lomé," said the executive secretary, after the audience.

Established in 1959, the Entente Council has five member States, Togo, Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, and Niger. The first West African institution ever set up, it strives to consolidate peace and stability in member states, but also promote economic, political, and cultural integration and the well-being of their populations.
