The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is currently holding an extra-ordinary meeting of its member states in Abuja.

The ongoing ECOWAS Extraordinary Summit focuses on the political, peace, and security situation in the region.

President Tinubu, who is the current Chairman of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State, is leading talks on developments within and around member-states that have fallen under military junta.
