President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, ECOWAS Chair, on Friday, September 17, 2021, left Accra for Guinea to meet its military leaders a day after the regional bloc placed travel and financial punishment on the coup leaders and their respective families.
The development is a follow-up on the suggestions West African leaders made at the regional body’s Accra Extraordinary meeting to solidify a decision on the political circumstances in Guinea.
The ECOWAS leaders, in a post-summit interaction, ordered a swift return to constitutional order, asking the military rulers of that country to fix presidential and legislative elections within the period of six months.

They also demanded the immediate and unconditional release of President Alpha Conde who has been remained captive since the coup on September 5, 2021, by an professional army unit led by a former French legionnaire, Lt. Col Mamady Doumbouya.
