President Bola Tinubu has urged ECOWAS member states to band together, develop relationships, and fight divisive elements that want to sow strife within the group.

Tinubu, speaking on Thursday in Abuja as Chairman of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, emphasized the importance of regional solidarity in strengthening the bloc’s resilience and effectiveness.

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, to build 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, amid ongoing challenges, our partnership can be a driving force for stability, growth, and prosperity in our region.”
