The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has a new leader in the person of Nigerian president,

Muhammadu Buhari. The leadership of the bloc revolves annually among heads of state.

President Muhammade Buhari said, I am truly humbled by my election today as the new Chairman of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS. I pledge to serve and work with my fellow Heads of State to deliver on peace, security, good governance and socio-economic development in the region.

I thank my colleagues for the Honour; they refused to take my ‘No’ for an answer. I would like to specially thank my predecessor, President of Togo, Faure Gnassingbe, for his excellent stewardship. And I look forward to hosting the next Meeting in Abuja in December.
