Osinbajo Leads Nigerian Delegation To Burkina Faso For Talks On Coup

Following the resolutions of the Extra-ordinary session of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) leaders in Abuja on Tuesday, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo will represent President Muhammadu Buhari in Burkina Faso.

Due to the situation in Burkina Faso, a select group of West African leaders were scheduled for a meeting in Quagadougou, Burkina Faso on Wednesday.

In all, six ECOWAS leaders would be attending the meeting with the leaders of last Thursday’s military coup in Burkina Faso.

A statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, said that the Vice President is expected back to Abuja later on Wednesday.
