We used the thirty-fifth edition of the Africa in Focus show to discuss some of the challenges associated with West Africa's integration, which seems to oblivious to the plight of consumers in the sub-region. Equally absent is the synergy between West Africa's policymakers and the youth, who remain important stakeholders in ECOWAS' integration project.
Azeez Gomda offered a robust argument on where ECOWAS integration needs to go, with a focus on the revision of the ECOWAS Treaty of 1993 to reflect today's realities in West Africa; greater synergy between East and West Africa; and support for ECOWAS to have Missions in strategic countries to help promulgate the idea of West Africa's integration.
As usual, we had Kobby Blay of #EbolaWatch offer us an update of developments around Ebola.
