MONROVIA, LIBERIA – The Authority of heads of state and government of the Economic Community of West African States has suspended Guinea from all ECOWAS governing bodies with immediate effect.
The Authority of Heads of State also demanded respect for the physical safety and an immediate release of ousted President Alpha Condé.
The ECOWAS Leaders have also dispatched a high-level ECOWAS mission to Guinea to assess the situation and will continue to review developments in that country.
The latest decisions were contained in an extraordinary session held virtually on Wednesday.
The Heads of State and Government have since expressed their solidarity with the people of Guinea and affirmed their determination to take every necessary action in restoring constitutional order in line with the ECOWAS protocol on democracy and good governance.
