Osinbajo in Accra for resolution on Guinea
Vice President Yemi Osinbajo today left Abuja to represent President Muhammadu Buhari at the second Extraordinary Summit of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government on the political situation in the Republic of Guinea.
He is accompanied by Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Zubairu Dada, and returns later today. Osinbajo had last week participated at the September 8 virtual meeting of the summit there the Sahel nation was suspended from all ECOWAS governing bodies and statutory meetings.
The sub-regional leaders also called for the immediate and unconditional release of President Alpha Conde and other others besides immediate restoration of constitutional order in the country and dispatch of a high-level mission to assess the situation.
Today’s physical meeting is reviewing the state of affairs in light of the report of the ECOWAS team to Conakry.
