Former President Ernest Bai Koroma has on Friday 21st October 2022 departed for Banjul to attend the ‘First Annual Retreat for Special Envoys and High Officials of ECOWAS and IGAD on Unconstitutional Changes of Government and Constitutional Transitions.

Africa and West Asia (AWA) Programme of International IDEA (AWA IDEA) is working to revitalize its partnership with African Regional Economic Communities (RECs) and other regional mechanisms. This is particularly important in the context of the shared objective of preventing and addressing challenges of constitutional transitions and unconstitutional changes of government (UCG) all across the continent.

“Given his critical role in supporting ECOWAS and African Union Commission efforts on mediation in constitutional transitions and preventing UCGs,’ former President Koroma will join his peers, policy and good governance experts in the continuous efforts to address the worrying relapse in democratic transitions on the continent.
