West African leaders to hold summit on Guinea crisis

Leaders of the west African bloc Ecowas are due to hold a summit to discuss the political crisis in Guinea following a coup that ousted President Alpha Condé,

The Ecowas leaders will meet on Thursday to decide how to respond to the coup and how to pressure the junta leaders to return the country to a constitutional rule, Ghana’s Foreign Minister Shirley Ayorkor Botchway said on Wednesday.

The regional bloc has condemned the coup and already suspended the country from the decision-making bodies of the organisation.

Ecowas also sent a mission to meet the coup leaders.

“The presidents will consider the report and decide what to do. They’ll decide on how to put pressure on the coup-makers to bring Guinea back to constitutional rule,” Ms Botchway said.
