    The Togolese opposition says it is open to dialogue on a possible amnesty for President Faure Gnassingbe if he accepts to vacate power at the end of his current mandate.
    It says it wants this proposal to form part of the roadmap proposed by the regional body, Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to resolve the political dispute in the country.
    Togo has been in the grip of a political crisis since last year August when protesters took to the street demanding constitutional reform, including term limits for the president.
    President Gnassingbe has been in power since 2005 when his father General Gnassingbe Eyedema who had ruled Togo for nearly four decades died.
    The Coordinator for the Togolese opposition, Bridget Johnson, spoke to WADR.
