Tinubu Elected Chairman Of ECOWAS


President Bola Tinubu has been elected as the Chairman of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). Tinubu assumed the position during the 63rd Ordinary Session of the regional bloc held in Bissau, the capital of Guinea-Bissau. Following the handover from the outgoing chairman, Guinea-Bissau’s President Umaro Embaló, Tinubu emphasized the importance of democracy and stated that it would be taken seriously under his leadership.

The ECOWAS Chairmanship is a rotating position held by a head of state or government from one of the member countries, with a one-year tenure. Former President Buhari previously occupied the position from 2018 to 2019. While the role does not grant executive powers, the Chairman plays a crucial role in conflict resolution, advocacy, and acts as a liaison with the President of the ECOWAS Commission, who is responsible for the day-to-day management and implementation of ECOWAS policies and decisions.
