The Economic Commission for the West African States (ECOWAS), under the Chairmanship of President Akufo Addo, has convened a summit of about six heads of States from the sub-region to Accra today to discuss the political situation in Guinea.
The veteran journalist and the Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Uncle Kwesi Pratt Junior, has indicated that the destiny of the Guineans people Will not be decided by some few in Accra but by the Guineans themselves.
Kwesi Pratt Junior made this statement on 'Good Morning Africa' on Pan Africa television this morning when he reacted to the ECOWAS extraordinary summit currently underway in Accra.
According to Kwesi Pratt, he believes the ECOWAS meeting to be held today in Accra is not crucial because if it is that crucial, it will be attended by more than just six heads of State from the sub-region.
Kwesi Pratt Junior indicated that it is important for the leadership of ECOWAS to know that the destiny of Guinea will be decided by Guineans and not by a crop of heads of States sitting in Accra.
He asked why ECOWAS is in a hurry for Guinea to return to constitutional rule when the Guinean people by themselves are making efforts to enter an agreement to return to democratic rule?
Kwesi Pratt Junior stated that he believes the ECOWAS meeting in Accra today is needless and unimportant.
"Why is it that the ECOWAS protocols on democracy are only enforced when heads of state are removed from office?" He asked
Kwesi Pratt advised that ECOWAS should be very careful so that it doesn't become completely irrelevant in the sub-region because people are beginning to see ECOWAS as a crop of heads of state who have no relevance when it comes to protecting the people in the sub-region.
