MONROVIA, LIBERIA-The Special Representative of the ECOWAS Commission to Liberia, Babatunde Ajisomo, says insurgencies, banditry and kidnapping in the Sahara Region are serious treats to peace and stability.

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

He said that it is important that ECOWAS States domesticate ECOWAS Protocols in their laws on transhumance.

Also remarking, 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.

Madam Taylor wants African Leaders take a retrospective look at the continent’s history to find a workable solution to problems amongst the people.
