Ivory coast at the center of the UEMOA summit

The extraordinary summit of the UEMOA opens this morning in Lomé in the presence of most heads of state of member countries, with the exception of Guinea Bissau. Alassane Ouattara (Ivory Coast), Amadou Toumani Toure (Mali), Hamadou Issoufou (Niger), Abdoulaye Wade (Senegal) and Blaise Compaoré (Burkina Faso) arrived on Sunday night in the Togolese capital and were greeted by Faure Gnassingbé.
At 10 am, participants will sign a donation agreement between the Union and Ivory Coast of a sum of 2 billion FCFA to finance the activities of the Commission "Dialogue Truth and Reconciliation", led by Charles Konan Banny former Ivorian Prime Minister.
Moreover, Ivory Coast should be in focus, but shouldn't be the only one. Member States will also appoint a new governor to head the Central Bank of West African States (BCEAO) and a new president for the WAEMU Commission.
Also, the situation in Burkina will be recalled. This country is experiencing a wave of protests for several weeks.
This is the first time that Togo is hosting a meeting of this magnitude since 2005. It must be said that President Faure Gnassingbé has spared no efforts to convince his counterparts to make this trip to Lomé.
