Buhari to host Special ECOWAS summit on political crisis in Burkina Faso
President Muhammadu Buhari will host an Extraordinary Summit of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Authority of Heads of State and Government tomorrow, Tuesday, September 22, in Abuja.
A statement by Garba Shehu, media aide to the president stated that “the main item on the agenda of the summit is the current political situation in Burkina Faso”.
Meanwhile, Burkina Faso’s military chiefs have demanded that the leaders of last week’s coup disarm, saying the army is marching on the capital Ouagadougou.
“All the national armed forces are converging on Ouagadougou with the sole aim of disarming the presidential guard without any bloodshed,” they said.
The coup was carried out by allies of President Blaise Compaore, who was ousted by street protests last year.
Transitional President Michel Kafando was forced from office last Thursday.
