International relations and security expert, Irbard Ibrahim, has described the President’s decision to mediate in the Togo crises as a difficult task.

President Nana Akufo-Addo was in Togo to hold talks with all relevant stakeholders in the ongoing political crisis in that country.

Togo has in recent times witnessed a series of protests by opposition parties who are calling for a return to the country’s constitution which imposes limits on presidential terms.

Speaking to Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive, International Relations and Security expert, Irbard Ibrahim, explained that inasmuch as there is a mediator, he believes that a power sharing agreement is the best solution to the crises.

According to him, Nana Addo’s choice as ‘mediator’ is a good strength due to his bilingual background.

“However, nobody can mediate the crises in Togo better than the Togo people themselves. If the mediators fails to reach a consensus between the government of President Faure Gnassingbé, and the Coalition of 14 Togolese opposition parties, their efforts will be in vain.”he added.
