Burkina Faso president leads ECOWAS committee to probe Nigeria’s border closure

The Heads of State and Government of the Authority for a Western African Economic Community (ECOWAS) has set up a committee to research and report on closure on the Nigerian ground border with its neighbours, led by President Roc Marc Christian Kabore of Burkina Faso.

The decision was taken in the margins of the 33rd Summit of the AU on the topic and the other pressing regional affairs this was made known in a statement from Senior Special Assistant (SSA) to President Garba Shehu on media and social publicity.

Nigeria's foreign minister, Geoffrey Onyeama, told journalists after the closed-door three-hour meeting to discuss West Africa's new single currency, Eco, and the situation in Guinea Bissau, which were also discussed at a meeting attended by President Buhari and President of the ECOWAS President, Mahamadou Issoufou, from Niger.

On border closure, Onyeama said:
“The President of Burkina Faso is charged with undertaking a full study of the situation, make a report and then we take it from there.”Asked when the report will be presented to ECOWAS Heads of State and Government, he replied: “As soon as possible, there are no timelines. But he is supposed to start very quickly, study the situation from all the affected countries and present his report.”On the Eco currency, Onyeama said: “Nothing has changed in respect of Nigeria’s position.”
Nigeria's position, he explained, is that most of the countries have not met the convergence requirements so the start of the single currency has to be extended.
