Buhari

Okezie Ikpeazu Governor of Abia State and home to the Leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has been scheduled to travel with President Muhammadu Buhari to Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso as he departs Abuja Saturday to attend the one-day ECOWAS Heads of State and Government Extraordinary Summit on Counter-Terrorism.

Apart from Ikpeazu, Governors Abubakar Bello of Niger and Dapo Abiodun of Ogun states are also on the President’s entourage, as well as the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, and the Minister of Defence, Major-General Bashir Magashi (retd).

Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, in a statement on Friday, said the summit by the regional leaders, was scheduled against the backdrop of security crisis in the sub-region.

“Given the growing threat of terrorism in the sub-region, the West African leaders had called for the Summit to review different initiatives taken so far, and redefine the priority intervention areas for the containment of the worrisome attacks in the area.

“The decision to convene the Summit was reached at the 55th Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government in Abuja on June 29, 2019.

“President Buhari recognises the imperative of collective actions in the fight against terrorism, and will continue to partner with ECOWAS member states and international organisations to address the menace.   

“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.

“Also on the President’s entourage are the National Security Adviser, Maj-General Babagana Monguno (retd) and Director-General, National Intelligence Agency (NIA), Amb. Ahmed Rufai Abubakar. The President is expected back in Abuja at the end of the Summit,” the statement, said.
