Tinubu will be in Guinea-Bissau for the ECOWAS conference.

On Saturday, July 8, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is scheduled to leave Abuja for Guinea-Bissau.

Bissau, the capital of the Republic of Guinea-Bissau, will be the site of the 63rd Ordinary Session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

This would be Tinubu’s second opportunity to represent Nigeria on a global stage. He just got back from a banking gathering in France.

The report of the 50th Ordinary Session of the Mediation and Security Council (MSC) covering security challenges faced by the member countries is expected to be discussed at the summit on Sunday, July 9, said presidential spokesperson Dele Alake on Friday.

According to Alake, the meeting will also consider the report of the transition in the republics of Mali, Burkina Faso, and Guinea, as well as the report of the financial situation of the ECOWAS body and the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).

Memoranda on the ECOWAS single currency initiative and a report on barriers to free trade along the Abidjan-Lagos corridor will also be discussed.

President Tinubu will be joined by high-ranking government officials and members of the Presidential Policy Advisory Council.

After the meeting, he will presumably return to the nation.
