Nigeria’s President, Bola Tinubu will on Sunday handover the chairmanship position of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government as his tenure comes to an end.

This will be done at the 65th Ordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of States which will be holding at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He is expected to hand over the baton of leadership to the next leader.

Recall that Tinubu was elected as chairman at the 63rd Ordinary Session of the Authority in Bissau, Guinea-Bissau. Throughout his tenure, he faced significant challenges, including military coups in several member states.

Mr Tinubu had adopted a firm stance against unconstitutional changes of government in Niger Republic, Burkina Faso, Mali, and Guinea, leading to the imposition of sanctions on these nations.

However, ECOWAS later resorted to a more diplomatic approach, lifting the sanctions to seek peaceful resolutions to these crises.
