Mali, Guinea, and Burkina Faso are described as resistant by President Akuffo Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, who also serves as the Chair of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), has labeled Mali, Guinea, and Burkina Faso as ECOWAS refractory members.

This is due to the toppling of constitutionally elected administrations and their refusal to return to democratic rule in these three counties.

“Members of the authority of ECOWAS, I want to welcome your excellencies back to Accra again to take stock of where we are with our three recalcitrant member states – Mali, Guinea, and Burkina Faso take appropriate decisions on the way forward,” Mr Akufo-Addo said at the opening ceremony of the Extraordinary meeting of ECOWAS in Accra on Friday March 25 to take stock of what is happening in these countries.

“I want to thank you once more for responding to the invitation to this meeting on such short notice, demonstrating once again your resolve to embrace your duties for ECOWAS security.”

ECOWAS had previously placed sanctions on members of Guinea’s and Mali’s juntas.

They and their family members have been barred from traveling, and their assets have been frozen. This decision was notified to international organizations such as the African Union, the United Nations, the European Union, and other bilateral organizations.
