A prominent collaborative Mission involving the ECOWAS, African Union and UNOWAS has arrived in Sierra Leone to assess the advancements of the “National Unity Agreement” between the Sierra Leonean government and the All People’s Congress (APC) Party.

The Mission is co-led by H.E Leonardo Santos Simao, Special Representative of the Secretary General and Head of the United Nations Office for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWAS) and H.E Fatoumata Jallow-Tambajang, former Vice President of The Gambia.

The Mission is meeting with senior government officials and the leaderships of the APC and other political parties as well as relevant political actors and stakeholders in the country.

The President of the ECOWAS Commission, H.E. Omar Alieu Touray, in consultations with the Chairperson of the African Union Commission, H.E. Moussa Faki, and the Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the United Nations Office for West Africa and the Sahel (UNOWAS), H.E. Leonardo Santos Simão, deployed a Joint ECOWAS-AU-UNOWAS Assessment Mission to the Republic of Sierra Leone, as a follow up to the Agreement for National Unity signed between the Government of Sierra Leone and the All Peoples Congress (APC) party on 18 October 2023.

As Moral Guarantors of the Agreement, the Joint ECOWAS-AU-UNOWAS Mission has urged all political actors and the citizens to remain calm and to prioritise the peace, unity and stability of the country above every other partisan interest.
