Former Benin President ends mediation mission in Guinea Conakry – The North Africa Post

Thomas Boni Yayi, a former President of Benin, also serves as mediator for the Economic Community of West African States in the Guinean political crisis. According to Turkish news agency Anadolu, Saturday was his second mission to the West African country.

Since September last year, Guinea has been ruled by Colonel Mamady Doubouya, who overthrew the elected president Alpha Conde.
The country was suspended by ECOWAS, who demanded the establishment a constitutional order. The Doumbouya-led government proposed a three-year transition, but the regional body rejected it in July.
Yayi Boni met with Guinea’s news leader Saturday along with other stakeholders in the framework for an inclusive dialogue, but was unable to get a commitment or roadmap from Doumbouya. The Turkish news agency notes that this is a failure.
“During these consultations, the mediator reiterated ECOWAS’ constant solidarity with Guinea and its firm commitment to accompany it in the rapid resolution of this crisis through a consensual agreement between all stakeholders, in order to ensure a rapid return to constitutional order, in accordance with ECOWAS provisions,” Yayi Boni said in a statement.
“The parties involved in the discussions affirmed their willingness to continue the discussions in order to agree on a timetable and content for the transition that is accepted by all,” the statement added.
