President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Heads of State and Government in the West African sub-region to tackle insecurity head-on.
The Nigerian President, who is the current Chairman of ECOWAS, called for joint action by all the member states to combat insurgency, kidnapping, banditry and other forms of cross-border crimes.

Buhari stressed that until insecurity was addressed in the sub-region, its stability, economic prosperity and development would remain a mirage.

He spoke in Abuja at the 55th Summit of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS.

The event is taking place at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He stated, “We should send a strong and unified message to the perpetrators of violence that we are resolute in our collective determination to confront and defeat them.”
