President Muhammadu Buhari has agreed to host the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and Heads of Governments.
In a four paragraph press release from the Presidency, President Buhari said that vital issues bordering on security and the economy would be discussed at the summit which holds during the third week in December 2015.
He said that it was time to seek the cooperation of the sub-region in fighting the scourge of terrorism and the illegal activities in the Gulf of Guinea which he says currently undermines the West African economy.
In September, President Buhari hosted an extraordinary summit of the Economic Community of West African States’ (ECOWAS) Authority of Heads of State and Government.
The main item on the agenda of the summit was the political situation which had caused violence and unrest in Burkina Faso.
