Buhari to attend ECOWAS Mid-Year Summit in Accra, Ghana




The Presidency says President Muhammadu Buhari will participate in the 59th Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government in Accra, Ghana, on Saturday.

The President’s spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, confirmed this development in a statement on Friday in Abuja.

Shehu said the president would depart Abuja on Saturday to join other Heads of State of Government of ECOWAS for the mid-year statutory meeting of the regional bloc.
