The President of Nigeria Bala Ahmed Tinubu is set to step aside as the chairman of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government as his one year tenure comes to an end today (Sunday).
The president is expected to handover the mantle at the 65th Ordinary Session of the Authority which is holding at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
Tinubu was unanimously endorsed as chairman in July 2024 at the 63rd Ordinary Session of the Authority in Bissau, Guinea-Bissau.
Since then, the Nigerian leader has dealt with challenges particularly military coups in member states.
The president initially took a strong stance against unconstitutional changes of government in Niger Republic, Burkina Faso, Mali and Guinea, overseeing the imposition of sanctions on them.

However, the sanctions were later lifted as the sub-regional body opted for a more peaceful approach to resolve the issues.
The president played a critical role in ensuring the success of the 2024 Senegalese election by facilitating dialogue between stakeholders.
This was as he demonstrated a strong commitment to promoting democracy in the sub-region during the year.
