WEST AFRICA: CSOs Lament ECOWAS Business-as-Usual approach To Critical Issues

ECOWAS’s perceived business-as-usual approach to handling sensitive issues remains a concern.

This perception is shared among citizens and civil society organizations in the subregion with an interest in regional integration and development.

Senegal’s unfolding political crisis, according to the West African Civil Society Forum (WASCOF) is of grave concern but is receiving little attention from the bloc in the face of increasing threats.

The Umbrella organization for CSOs in the region cited the withdrawal of Mali, Burkina Faso, and Niger from ECOWAS as one of many indicators for the regional powerhouse to wake up to its new reality.
