LISTEN AUG 28, 2020

A press statement has been issued after an emergency meeting denounced the military coup which culminated in the forced resignation and detention of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and his government officials.

The statement re-echoed calls by the U.N Security Council and regional bodies, African Union (AU) and ECOWAS for the immediate release of detained government officials.

The statement praised ECOWAS for suspending Mali for the sub-regional body and closing its borders with the country noting that the military takeover would not only undermine democracy and development of the country but also efforts to fight terrorist groups in the country.

The organization is calling on the U.N and its member states to mobilize punitive measures to compel the coup leaders to immediately restore constitutional rule in Mali.

CUNANGOS also commended the coordinated efforts of the government, Corporate Ghana, Civil Society in mobilising resources to fight the COVID -19 pandemic.

The statement singled out the Ghana Infectious Disease Centre at the Ga East Municipal Hospital in Accra, built by the Covid-19 Private Sector Fund in collaboration with the Ghana Armed Forces, in record time, as a shining example of great things that happen when all hands are on deck.

CUNANGOS applauded the sacrifices and the hard work of frontline health workers whose efforts were responsible for the successes being chalked in the fight against the pandemic and called on all Ghanaians to continue to strictly adhere to all the Covid-19 protocols.

Statement Issued on behalf of the association by Head/Public Affairs
