West African leaders are doing something about the Togolese situation. Nigerian president Obasanjo is leading a delegation going into Lome to ask Faure Gnassingbe to vacate the presidency and let the constitution take it’s course.
In another development the Nigerian national assembly passed a motion urging the African Union through it’s chairman (Obasanjo) to look at all option (military action if necesary) to bring sanity to the Togolese henchmen. This is encouraging. If democracy is to take root in Africa, people in power need to live by the rule of law. I can only hope this was the case when our resident dictator took over. The Gambia wouldn’t have turn into the nightmarish basket case it is today.
