The economic community of west african states bans Guinea’s participation

Guinea's participation in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has been suspended after the tactical upset that toppled President Alpha Conde, Burkina Faso's Foreign Minister Alpha Barry at the end of an ECOWAS exceptional Summit by means of Videoconferencing.

The military coup which happened on September 6, 2021, which led to the fate of Guinea's President Alpha Condé in dismay is unclear after an unverified video showed him surrounded by soldiers, who said they had seized power. They showed up on public TV professing to have broken down the public authority. Nonetheless, the protection service said the endeavored takeover had been foiled by the official gatekeeper. This follows long stretches of substantial gunfire close to the official castle in the capital, Conakry. But as of today, it has been verified that indeed the coup has occurred. The purpose of the coup is due to the long-serving term of Alpha Conde, he is supposed to serve for only two years but after the two years, former President of Guinea Conakry amended the constitution to extend his rule for a third term, and jailed the opposition.

Today as a meeting of ECOWAS leaders was held to discuss the Coup in Guinea, the leaders of the ECOWAS bloc have demanded the release of ousted President Alpha Conde from military custody. They plan to send a high-level delegation to Guinea on Thursday, September 9, 2021.
