President Tinubu Re-elected As ECOWAS Chairman

President Bola Tinubu of Nigeria has been re-elected as the Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) for a second term.

The election took place during the 65th Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government on Sunday at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, Nigeria.

In his opening remarks, Tinubu stressed the need for member states to make financial commitments to combat terrorism in the region. He emphasized that the success of the ECOWAS Standby Force (ESF) in fighting terrorism requires substantial financial resources.

Tinubu urged member states to fulfill their financial obligations to enable ECOWAS to meet the expectations and recommendations of its defense and finance ministers. He emphasized that fulfilling these commitments will help stabilize the region and counter insecurity.

This development comes as ECOWAS faces challenges, including the exit of three member states – Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger – and financing issues.
