ECOWAS reacts to B. Faso, Mali and Niger’s exit plan

The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has responded to news of the exit of Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger from the community.

Although ECOWAS says it is yet to receive any direct formal notification from the three Member States about their intention to withdraw from the Community, the authority “remains committed to finding a negotiated solution to the political impasse” in those countries.

The three countries announced their decision to leave ECOWAS with immediate effect on Sunday.

In a statement, the three African countries complained that ECOWAS “has drifted from the ideals of its founding fathers and the spirit of Pan-Africanism,” hence their decision.

ECOWAS, in its communiqué, affirmed its commitment to working diligently with Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger to restore constitutional order, in line with directives from the Authority of Heads of State and Government.

ECOWAS emphasized the continued significance of Burkina Faso, Niger, and Mali as integral members of the Community.

These countries are currently led by militaries that seized power from civilian leaders.


There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.

1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.

2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.

3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.

Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one. If you can, please support us on a monthly basis from just 1 Ghana Cedi through mobile money number: 0599896099/ +23359989609 and you can be rest assured that you’re making a big impact every single month in support of open, independent journalism.
