Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan speaks during a press conference on December 7, 2010, after a special summit of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) heads of States on Ivory Coast’s electoral crisis. West African leaders called on the Ivory Coast’s Laurent Gbagbo to yield power, recognised his rival as president and suspended the country from regional bloc ECOWAS. The bloc did not threaten sanctions, but appeared intent on sending a strong signal to Gbagbo’s camp, which has named a new government despite UN-certified results showing he had lost.
