On yesterday's episode of 'ALHAJI & ALHAJI' on Pan Africa television, the former Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Inusah Fuseini, said that ECOWAS has become a club for presidents in West Africa hence, they only care about themselves.
According to Inusah Fuseini, it has become clear that ECOWAS is a club for Presidents in West Africa, and they have never been proactive in matters that affect the people in their various countries like what happened in Guinea.
He indicated that ECOWAS, as a sub-regional bloc, has always failed to see the worrying signals that indicate that what is happening can lead to an undemocratic dissipation of power. So, it is about time that ECOWAS leaders become proactive in handling issues in West Africa.
Inusah Fuseini was of the view that the ECOWAS leadership should have told President Akufo Addo that it is unacceptable for 9 People to die in Ghana during the 2020 election.
They should have told Akufo Addo that if these incidents continue under his watch and there is a grievous abuse of human rights in his country, sanctions will be placed on him, but they didn't tell him anything.
"What our African leaders do is to always fly in planes to meetings and sometimes having virtual meetings, and laughing their big men laugh and so on."
He suggested that the restoration of democratic rule in Guinea is very important because Guinea has tremendous potentials, so it is important to have a civilian government that will build and empower all the institutions of government to hold the executives accountable so that Guineans can benefit from the resources of the country.
He added that the visit of the ECOWAS delegation to Guinea is very important and a step in the right direction. He hopes the best comes out of it.
