The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) special envoy, former President Dr Goodluck Jonathan; African Union (AU) High Representative for Silencing the Guns, Dr Mohammed ibn Chambers; and the Netherlands have called for an end to incessant coups in Africa.


They stated this during the Second Annual Retreat for Special Envoys and High Officials representing Regional Economic Communities (RECs) on Constitutional Transitions and Unconstitutional Changes of Governments, organised by the International Institute for Democracy and Electoral Assistance (International IDEA) in collaboration with ECOWAS.


Jonathan said the theme of this year’s retreat is timely given the pace of rising insecurity, mounting social tension, the number of constitutional transitions and unconstitutional changes of governments that the region is facing.


He however urged leaders to always ensure inclusivity in governance.
