Togo: ECOWAS chair to meet key political figures in Lome

President John Dramani Mahama is in Lome, Togo, to continue his consultation with key political stakeholders ahead of the country's elections this month.

Togo's election, originally slated for April 15, 2015 was postponed to April 25, 2015 following recommendations by the Chair of the Authority of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government, President Mahama.

He said after a one day working visit to Lome in March, that ECOWAS proposed that the election is delayed by 10 days to allow the election list to be revised to the satisfaction of all parties.

Monday’s consultations are to help ECOWAS determine the level of preparations and the satisfaction of the various political parties contesting the polls.

From Lome, President Mahama will continue to Abuja, Nigeria, for meetings with the outgoing President of the Federal Republic, Goodluck Jonathan and the President-elect, Major General Muhammadu Buhari.

President Mahama will also discuss the upcoming 40th Anniversary of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which will be hosted by Nigeria in May.
