The President of Burkina Faso is the Chairman of the ECOWAS Committee mandated to resolve the issue of border closure.

“Our major problem is security — the inflow of weapons, ammunition, and drugs.

“We have witnessed a decline in banditry using such weapons since the partial closure of the border.

“Also, our farmers are now able to sell their rice since we stopped the inflow of foreign rice, usually dumped in the country,’’ he said.
