Received in Cotonou on May 9 by the President of Benin, Marcel Amon-Tanoh, executive secretary of the Council of the Entente, discussed with Patrice Talon the reforms that the leaders of this West African organization intend to implement.
Installed on January 5, the new leaders of the Council of the Agreement already express the need to reform the organization which brings together Benin, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Niger and Togo.
The presence of Marcel Amon-Tanoh at the Palais de la Marina on May 9 is part of the sharing of information and collection of suggestions from the President of Benin before the implementation of the restructuring program of the Conseil de l’Entente established by the new Executive Office.
At the end of the working session with Patrice Talon, the Board’s executive secretary, declared that he wanted “to ensure that the Council of the Entente becomes a viable organization again”. And it goes through “reforms”.
On the same subject, Amon-Tanoh consulted Togolese President Faure Essozimna Gnassingbé on February 25. The Executive Secretary’s wish is that there be “a permanent dialogue between the Heads of State of the member countries”. According to him, this would “give the Council of the Entente a strength and vigor that it has lost”.
