The situation in Burkina Faso after the fall of Blaise Compaoré is at the heart of the discussions during the extraordinary summit of the Heads of States and governments opened on Thursday in the Ghanaian capital town.

At first, this meeting was planned to be an opportunity to discuss about the Ebola virus. But the urgent case in Burkina Faso seems to override the pandemic.

The participants should thus share the experiences of the ECOWAS member countries on the fight and prevention of the virus.

According to the Ghanaian diplomacy, the emergency summit on Burkina Faso will look for ways and means to set up a transition team that will be in charge of the organization of the next elections within the time limit allowed by the Constitution in case of power vacuum.

The announcement of the debate concerning Burkina Faso was revealed on Sunday in Accra by the Ghanaian President, John Mahama at the end of an audience granted to the envoys of the United Nations Organization (UNO), the African Union (AU) and the ECOWAS sent to Ouagadougou to meet the actors on the field.

After his resignation, the ex-President Burkinabe, Blaise Compaoré took refuge in Yamoussoukro, Ivory Coast.
