The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dr Tajudeen Abbas, says President Bola Ahmed Tinubu would join hands with other ECOWAS leaders to turn things around in the subregional body.
Dr Abbas made the remark in congratulatory message on the President’s emergence as the Chairman of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
The Speaker expressed confidence in President Tinubu’s ability to deploy his wealth of experience in public administration in spearheading sustainable socio-economic plans for the African sub-region.
The Speaker said: “I congratulate His Excellency, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, on his unanimous adoption as the Chairman of ECOWAS in the just concluded 63rd Ordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the West African States.
“It is an affirmation of President Tinubu’s popularity beyond Nigeria and among his colleagues in West Africa. There are no doubts that the African sub-region will witness exemplary leadership with the Nigerian President as ECOWAS chairman.”
The ECOWAS chairmanship is a position held by one of the heads of states or governments of the member countries, chosen on a rotating basis for one-year tenure.
