The Former Aviation Minister in Nigeria, Femi Fani-Kayode has described the decision of the leaders of the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS to make President Muhammadu Buhari the leader of COVID-19 fight as a great mistake.
Fani-Kayode, in his Twitter handle said Buhari couldn’t manage himself, let alone leading ECOWAS region in the fight against Coronavirus pandemic, saying the African leaders would regret such decision.
“The greatest mistake that the ECOWAS leaders have made is to appoint @MBuhari as the leader of the fight against Covid 19. This is a cataclysmic error which they will deeply regret. He can barely manage himself & now you ask him to manage a sub-region of 400 million people?”
ECOWAS leaders on Thursday appointed President Muhammadu Buhari to lead the battle against the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic in the sub-region.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the summit was convened by the regional leaders to deliberate on the COVID-19 pandemic which has continued to ravage humanity worldwide.
“The West African leaders discussed how to tackle the period of COVID-19 and what to do post-COVID-19.
“Now, at the end of it all, it was decided that there should a champion who would lead the response of the sub-region and that champion is President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria”, says Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media
