President Bola Tinubu has called on ECOWAS member states to unite, strengthen bonds, and resist divisive forces aiming to sow discord within the community.


Speaking during the inauguration of the Sixth Legislature of the ECOWAS Parliament on Thursday, in Abuja, Tinubu, in his capacity as the Chairman of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, emphasized the significance of regional solidarity in bolstering the resilience and effectiveness of the bloc.

He said in part, “We stand united against such forces and are committed to ensuring that our unity remains unshaken. We must ensure that cooperation amongst us is strengthened, with a view to building a sense of common destiny and purpose. No one can do this for us. We must come together.

“To this extent, reinforcing the legitimacy of the decisions taken by the Authority of Heads of State is key in sending a message that ECOWAS is one indivisible body.

“It is also very important that the executives, on the other hand, show similar confidence in the parliament, which would indeed deepen democracy in our region.

“Meanwhile, in the midst of ongoing challenges, our partnership can be a driving force for stability, growth, and prosperity in our region.”
