Leaders in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) have gathered in Accra.
They are meeting to deliberate on the situation in Mali, Guinea, and Burkina Faso where the military has seized power and controlled affairs.
ECOWAS heads of state have in each of the coup d’états, instituted sanctions against the military leaders in Mali, Guinea, and Burkina Faso.
They have also demanded that the military junta in the affected countries take immediate steps to restore constitutional order.
The three affected countries have in separate proposals, presented road maps to transition their respective nations back to constitutional rule.
ECOWAS leaders have however rejected the transition plans of the three countries which range from 2 to 5 years.
They have instead asked interim leaders in the three countries to take immediate steps to return their states to constitutional rule.
