IS THE DECLARATION OF AN ISLAMIC REPUBLIC NOT A VIOLATION OF ECOWAS PROTOCOL?

QUESTION OF THE DAY

IS THE DECLARATION OF AN ISLAMIC REPUBLIC NOT A VIOLATION OF ECOWAS PROTOCOL?

ECOWAS Protocol On Democracy and Good Governance has elaborated on constitutional convergence principles which should be shared by al member states

Article 1 paragraph (c) indicates that there should be “Zero tolerance for power obtained or maintained by unconstitutional means.”

To declare and Islamic Republic when the constitution forbids state based on religion is to assert power by unconstitutional means.
