Nigeria Tasks New ECOWAS Leadership On Lingering Issues

Nigeria has called on the President Sissoco Embaló-led new leadership of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), alongside a newly composed Commission, to work harder to resolve lingering issues in the region.

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo made the call while speaking with journalists at the end of the Ordinary Session of ECOWAS held in Accra, Ghana.

He noted that the new leadership under President Sissoco Embaló should step up efforts and address the responsibilities the region faces today.

Professor Osinbajo, however, added that besides the challenges, the region is witnessing appreciable progress in the ECOWAS common currency policy, noting there are things “we should be happy about.”
