The Ekiti State Governor, Mr Biodun Oyebanji, has said the emergence of Nigeria President, Bola Tinubu, as the new chairman of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) will boost the economy growth in the region.

Oyebanji who said this during his congratulatory speech to the ECOWAS elected chairman also stated that his emergence was due to his commitment and responsibility to reposition Nigeria to its pride place on the Africa continent across the globe.

In a statement signed by his special adviser on media, Olayinka Oyebode, made available to Irohinodua on Monday, he emphasized on his confidence that the countries under this region will begin to experience economy prosperity and peace among the member states.

He said, “I am not surprised that Mr President was unanimously elected to lead ECOWAS. He has constantly expressed the readiness of his administration to ensuring that Nigeria takes its pride of place in the comity of nations. There is no doubt that ECOWAS under President Tinubu’s chairmanship will ensure economic prosperity, deepen democratic stability and enhance trade cooperation among member States”.

“Nigerians must support the President who is now representing us at the regional level to succeed in the herculean task given to our country which is seen as the big brother of the region and the continent. He has already shown strong and reliable leadership in Nigeria; he would no doubt extend same to the region with our support. On behalf of the government and people of Ekiti State, I wish the President a successful and prosperous tenure,” He added.
