A high-powered delegation from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is scheduled to arrive in Sierra Leone today. The delegation comprises eminent leaders such as President Macky Sall of Senegal, President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, ECOWAS Commission President Omar Touray, and ECOWAS Commissioner for Political Affairs, Peace, and Security Abdel Fatau-Musah. The mission aims to engage in vital discussions and diplomatic engagements within Sierra Leone, centering around two crucial issues: the recent failed coup attempt in Sierra Leone and discussions pertaining to the country’s pivotal role in regional peacekeeping efforts.

As the delegation arrives, expectations are high for productive deliberations, reflecting ECOWAS’s commitment to regional peace, stability, and development. Stay tuned for more updates on this important visit.
