MONROVIA, LIBERIA - The Special Representative of the ECOWAS Commission to Liberia Ambassador Babatunde Ajisomo has stressed the wave of insurgencies, banditry and kidnapping in the Sahara region is sending out a signal of possible resurfacing of internal and regional violence.

Speaking Thursday, September 12, 2019 at the former opening of the ECOWAS Parliamentary Seminar held in Monrovia, Congo Town, Ambassador Ajisomo said: “Though conflict is declining in some West African states, the issue of transhumance and inter-community remain a challenge in the region”.

Amb. Ajisomo said it is important that member states domesticate ECOWAS Protocols in their laws on transhumance.

Meanwhile, Liberia’s Vice President, Jewel Howard-Taylor, said: “It is proven that conflicts among herders, farmers and encroaching population in Africa have resulted to the loss of lives”.

VP Taylor is calling on African leaders take a retrospective look at the continent’s history to find a cordial solution to problems amongst the people.
