Political heads of the West African regional bloc ECOWAS have started arriving in Accra, Ghana for extraordinary Summit.

The summit scheduled to take place in the Ghanaian national capital is to help the leaders deliberate on the political situation in Burkina Faso following the country’s recent coup.

Democratically elected President Roch Kabore was in late January 2022 overthrown by a military junta.

Burkina followed Mali and Guinea as countries to have recorded coups over the last two years.

So far the Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbanjo, the President of Niger, Mohamed Bazoum, the President of Togo, have all arrived in Accra.
