A section of lawmakers at the ongoing 2023 first Ordinary Session of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Parliament in Abuja Nigeria, are anxiously waiting to hear Sierra Leone’s country report.

In an interview with the leader of the Liberian delegation Senator Edwin Melvin Snowe Jr. on Friday, May 12, 2023 he noted that they are waiting for the Country report to be presented on Saturday, May 13, 2023.

According to him, he is concerned about Sierra Leone’s report as ECOWAS and the AU have sponsored a fact finding mission there and he is in possession of those fact finding mission but he cannot disclose those report.

“But I need to listen to their country report and relate it to the fact finding report, but now we are concerned Sierra Leone has not given their country report Saturday. They would give their report based on that we critic their report on the information we have”.

Senator Snowe further noted that, the Committee on Political Affairs, Peace, Security and African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) will visit Sierra Leone after the Session, but was quick to point out people are already on the ground and working with the ECOWAS Commission which is giving up to date briefing.

“We are concerned about the political situation there hence the reason to listen to their country”.
