President Akufo-Addo has stated strongly that the inability of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to integrate fully is simply due to the lack of leadership.

Addressing attendees of the 2019 International Conference of the Community Court of Justice, ECOWAS, at the Mensvic Hotel, the President said the ECOWAS region cannot make the bold and urgent changes so required without appropriate united leadership.

He said the implementation of plans to bring progress and prosperity to the 350 million citizens of ECOWAS has been left to well meaning technocrats and bureaucrats.

“Our problem over the years I suggest has been leadership. The implementation of plans to bring progress and prosperity to the 350 million citizens of ECOWAS has been left to well meaning technocrats and bureaucrats.
However well meaning they may be, our region cannot make the bold transforming changes it needs to make without visionary, political leadership. We need leadership that is focused on the region and not on individual countries” President Akufo Addo indicated.
