The President said , “The Togolese President came to see me in Tamale ten days ago, and we are talking to see how we can bring this crisis to a closure and bring stability back to Togo. It is in our interest to do so.”

A number of protests have been staged in Togo by opposition parties in recent times, as calls for the country to return to the use of the 1992 constitution which imposes limits in presidential terms heightens.

Meanwhile, 26 Togolese nationals were arrested in Ghana over the weekend for organising a protest in the capital Accra without notifying the authorities.
