Togo opposition chief calls for Gnassingbe's resignation

LOME, Sept 6 (Reuters) - Togo’s opposition leader on Wednesday called for the immediate departure of long-ruling President Faure Gnassingbe, saying that a government draft law to reintroduce presidential term limits came too late.

Speaking before a crowd of thousands of protesters in central Lome, Jean-Pierre Fabre, the head of the main ANC opposition party, said: “We will march again tomorrow. Faure should talk to us about the conditions for his departure. The (draft) law on mandates comes too late.” (Reporting by John Zodzi; Writing by Emma Farge; Editing by Hugh Lawson)
