Ecowas chairman, President Nana Akufo-Addo who is the President of the Republic of Ghana and President of Ivory Coast, Alassane Ouattara met in Guinea’s capital, Conakry on friday, where they had a meeting with coup plotters led by Colonel Mamady Doumbouya. Deposed President Alpha Conde had earlier vowed to never bowed to these coup plotters. It is alleged that they wanted him to sign, pledging he has stepped down but the former President insists until he dies, he will never do that.

He was toppled by his own military who ousted him from after 10years in office.
