Just in: ECOWAS Heads Meeting Starts in Abuja as Tinubu’s Tenure Ends

As President Bola Tinubu’s tenure as the Chairman of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) draws to a close on July 9, 2024, leaders and representatives from 12 member states have gathered at the State House Conference Centre in Abuja for the 63rd Ordinary Summit.

The summit, which commenced at 1 pm, is expected to result in the announcement of a new chairperson to lead the regional bloc for the coming year.

However, there are indications that the leaders may consider extending President Tinubu’s tenure.

This extension would allow him additional time to work towards reintegrating Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso into ECOWAS, as these nations have faced political instability and challenges in recent times.
