Statement by Civil Society Organizations and Civic Actors in West Africa to the 65th Ecowas Heads of State and Government Summit

The West Africa Democracy Solidarity Network (WADEMOS), in collaboration with Tournons la Page (TLP), West Africa Civil Society Institute (WACSI), and other pro-democracy actors across the region, extend our warmest regards to the Heads of States ahead of the 65th Session of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government to be held in Abuja, Nigeria, on July 7, 2024. This memorandum expresses our concerns about developments in our region. It offers recommendations for considering Your Excellencies to strengthen the democratic architecture, improve peace and security and advance the integration of the peoples of the Community.

As regional Civil Society Organizations (“CSOs”) dedicated to the prosperity and development of the region, we are deeply concerned about the political and security crises and the risk to the unity and cohesion of the Community. These developments, including unconstitutional and undemocratic changes of governments, have occurred, and persist despite the normative framework on peace and security and the ECOWAS Supplementary Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance.
