President Muhammadu Buhari Thursday in Abuja pledged that Nigeria will continue to meet all its obligations to the ECOWAS Commission.
Receiving the new President of the Commission, Mr Marcel Alain de Souza at the Presidential Villa, President Buhari assured him that Nigeria will go on playing its leadership role in ECOWAS.
According to a statement by Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity), the President told Mr de Souza that the Federal Government will also strive to show a good example to others by meeting all its financial obligations to the sub-regional organisation.
Mr de Souza commended President Buhari for Nigeria’s recent successes in the war against terrorism and insurgency,
noting that with terrorist attacks spreading to countries like Mali, Burkina Faso, Cote D’Ivoire and others, security had to be accorded more priority by ECOWAS.
“Without security, there can’t be development and progress,” the new ECOWAS Commission President stressed.
