“By its size and resources, Nigeria has no alternative than to back ECOWAS to the hilt. We are part of ECOWAS. Indeed, we are at the very heart of it, so we will continue to play our role,” the Nigerian leader said.

Buhari called on leaders of West African countries to utilize the gains for the development of their nations and work hard to get more reliable intelligence and support from the international community. Enditem
