Diplomatic success

The extraordinary summit of the UEMOA opened this morning in Lomé, in the presence of all the presidents of member states. The first symbolic gesture, granting Ivory Coast a donation of 2 billion FCFA for the new Commission "Truth and Reconciliation Dialogue" led by Charles Konan Banny, former Ivorian Prime Minister.
Participants listened to the speech of Faure Gnassingbé, President of Togo and President of the UEMOA before returning to concrete issues. Further to the discussions on the economic situation in Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso policy, they must appoint a new governor to head the Central Bank (BCEAO) and a new president for the WAEMU Commission.
All heads of state of member countries have made the trip, Alassane Ouattara (Ivory Coast), Amadou Toumani Toure (Mali), Hamadou Issoufou (Niger), Abdoulaye Wade (Senegal) and Blaise Compaore (Burkina Faso), Thomas Boni Yayi (Benin) and Malam Bacai Sanhá (Guinea Bissau) arrived at 12 am in Lomé.
A good diplomatic success for President Faure Gnassingbé who managed to convince all of his counterparts to attend the event; which is quite rare in this kind of summit.
This is the first time that Togo hosts a meeting of this magnitude since 2005.
