13 ECOWAS Authority of Heads of States and Government including Foreign Affairs Ministers are expected to table over military junta in Mali, Guinea and how to discover enduring solution for the two Francophone ECOWAS Members.
Military junta headed by Lt. Col. Mamadou Dambouya ousted Government of Guinea Sunday September 5, 2021 and kept President Alpha Conde in their custody at the midst of public cheers.
Until his defeat, Lt. Col. Dambouya was Prof. Alpha Conde’s extraordinary partner, an official he elevated from lower to higher position within a brief period an tasked him to be responsible for world class military power he exclusively set up to safeguard his questionable third term agenda.
Guinea’s Coup Leader Lt. Col. Dambouya’s 15-year military trip has seen him serve in missions in Afghanistan, Ivory Coast, Djibouti, Central African Republic and close assurance in Israel, Cyprus, the UK and Guinea. He holds Masters in Military Strategy.
Lt. Col. Dambouya subsequent to organizing the coup, blamed Prof. Alpha Conde of monetary botch and denial of basic freedoms of the Guinea public.
He has since freed more than 80 detainees imprisoned by toppled President Alpha Conde and binding his boots to set free 711 altogether.
He has shutdown sea, land, air borders and requested government’s authorities to return vehicles to state official pool at People’s Palace.
ECOWAS at its gathering directed by Chairman of ECOWAS Authority of Heads of States and Government H.E Akufo-Addo has suspended Guinea from the membership, requested quick set-free of Prof. Alpha Conde and return to constitutional order.
In any case, ECOWAS has been criticised by Security and International Relations Experts of dozing off and watching indifferently after Prof. Alpha Conde questionably changed Guinea’s 10-year legal limit because of his exorbitant craving to tie down third term and continue to stay in office.
Among those are a Lecturer at Legon Center for International Affairs and Diplomacy (LECIAD) at University of Ghana Dr. Ken Ahorsu, Director Faculty of Academic Affairs and Research at Kofi Annan International Peace Training Center
Prof. Kwesi Annin, Dean of Ghana Armed Forces Staff College Dr. Vladimir Antwi Danso and others.
However, upon appearance from Conakry, Ghana’s Foreign Affairs Minister Ms Shirley Ayorkor Botchey demands ECOWAS Authority of Heads of States advised President Alpha Conde to adhere to the second term spelt by the Guinean constitution.
Ms Ayorkor Botchey noticed that conversation is far-advaced to kick off transitioning that will usher-in Prof. Alpha Conde from detainment, giving way to civilian regime.
