President Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has exited Guinea Bissau after his participation in the 63rd Ordinary session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
Recall that President Tinubu on Sunday emerged as the new ECOWAS Chairman at the ECOWAS Summit held in the Republic of Guinea-Bissau.
The Nigerian leader took over from President Umaro Sissoco Embaló of Guinea-Bissau.
At the ECOWAS summit, the leaders addressed several important regional topics and also featured discussions on the ECOWAS Single Currency Programme and a report on the obstacles to the free movement of goods along the Abidjan-Lagos corridor.
The Summit also looked at the report from the 50th Ordinary Session of the Mediation and Security Council (MSC) concerning security challenges within member nations; a report from the 90th Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Council of Ministers about the group’s financial situation and implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA); and a report on the state of political transition in the Republics of Mali, Burkina Faso, and Guinea.
