The National Civil Society Council of Liberia has expressed worry over the growing wave of unprecedented human rights violations within the Mano River Union basin.
Council requests ECOWAS’ direct mediation and enabling resolution within the context of human rights abuse and emerging political instability in the region.
It says the situation in Guinea and Cote d’Ivoire is matter of extreme threats to the Mano River Union Basin.
According to the council, the unwillingness or inability of regional governments to provide safe space, uncensored political environment, and free, fair and transparent elections has the greatest propensity to derail peace and undermine the stability of the region.
Jeremiah Swen is the Secretary-General of the Council.
