ECOWAS countries could soon meet to discuss reopening of land borders

(Togo First) - After reopening its air borders, Togo is looking to soon do the same for its land borders. This, however, must be done in coordination with other countries of the subregion. 

The news was disclosed by Col. Djibril Mohaman who heads the team in charge of the response to the pandemic in Togo. He did so during the latest press briefing on the disease’s evolution in the country.

Regarding land borders, we are awaiting the harmonization of the ECOWAS so that we all agree to reopen them. 

In the meantime, as Covid-19 cases are stabilizing in the country, following some disturbances in August, public authorities plan to further raise awareness and boost prevention to mitigate the spread of the virus. 

“As part of our control strategy (...), we will raise awareness further, continue preventing the virus from entering our territory, so we are reinforcing our activities at borders, especially at the airport, but at the port also.” 

Let’s recall that besides Nigeria, all ECOWAS countries have reopened their air borders which were closed for many months.
