ECOWAS to hold extra-ordinary summit in Abuja on Saturday, 17th October 2009


ABUJA, October 14, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ -- An extra-ordinary summit of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government will take place on Saturday, 17th October 2009 in Abuja to discuss the political and security situations in Guinea and Niger.


The summit will specifically consider the recommendations of the International Contact Group on Guinea (ICG-G) which ended its day-long meeting in Abuja on Monday, 12th October 2009.

Among others, the Group called for the creation of a new transitional authority, through dialogue if possible, as well as the withdrawal of the National Council for Democracy and Development (CNDD) in other to ensure a short and peaceful transition marked by the conduct of credible, free and fair elections in which those holding key executive positions demonstrate total neutrality throughout the electoral process.


The Heads of State will also consider the report of the ECOWAS Mediation and Security Council which met in Abuja on 24th August 2009 as well as the report of the findings of a four-member ad-hoc ministerial committee led by Nigeria and composed of Benin, Burkina Faso and Sierra Leone, which visited Niger shortly after the Council's deliberations in Abuja.


The committee was mandated to work with all political stakeholders in Niger, including the National Council for Dialogue, towards the restoration of dialogue and consensus which characterized the political environment before the current constitutional crisis.
