ECOWAS heads meet in Abuja

Presidents and representatives of 12 member states of the Economic Community of West African States are currently meeting at the State House Conference Centre in Abuja, for the 63rd Ordinary Summit.

This is as President Bola Tinubu’s tenure as the Chairman of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the ECOWAS elapses on July 9, 2024,

The meeting, which began at 1pm, would likely see the West African leaders announce a new chair to steer the affairs of the bloc for the next one year.

However, there are indications that leaders may extend Tinubu’s tenure to give him time to possibly win back Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso into the bloc.
