Leaders in the West African area, according to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, must transcend coups d’état and challenges to democracy.
Following the election of Tinubu as the next chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) at the current 63rd Ordinary session in Guinea Bissau, Dele Alake, the presidential spokesman, revealed this on Sunday in a statement.
The leader of the most populous nation in Africa declared that the region’s advancement and development are being hampered by terrorism and insecurity.
The operationalization of the ECOWAS standby force on the fight against terrorism is another. There is also the Regional Plan of Action on Fight Against Terrorism 2020-2024.
I’ll see to it that these plans are coordinated and that resources and political will are mobilised to make the initiatives a reality. We must cooperate in order to establish an effective regional counterterrorism strategy since terrorists do not respect borders, he said.
