“In Ouagadougou, ECOWAS Leaders are expected to adopt a priority action plan on counter-terrorism, and put in place a mechanism to monitor the implementation of the measures adopted towards ensuring lasting peace in the sub-region.

“President Buhari will be accompanied by Governors Abubakar Bello, Dapo Abiodun, and Okezie Ikpeazu of Niger, Ogun, and Abia States, respectively; as well as the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, and the Minister of Defence, Major-General Bashir Magashi (Rtd).
