ECOWAS Chair in The Gambia

"In the African tradition, if anything happens in your brother's house you have to go and visit and make sure that things are okay, and that is why I came. You also know that our ECOWAS protocols do not support violent overthrow of governments, so we want to remind all member states of the protocols that ECOWAS has, that change of government must be through democratic means and as far as possible we should try and abide by that."
These are the comments made by the Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama, Chair of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State & Government speaking after a visit to The Gambia to express solidarity with President Yahya Jammeh, the government and people of the country following a failed attempt of a recent coup d'etat.
