Akufo-Addo An 'Amazing Extraordinary Leader'; No Wonder He's ECOWAS Chair - Minister

Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan has congratulated President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his position as Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was appointed ECOWAS Chairman during the summit of Heads of African States held at Niamey, capital of the Republic of Niger.

''On Monday, 7th September 2020, the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), took the decision to elect me, by unanimous vote, as Chairperson of ECOWAS for the next term of one year. When we think of West Africa together with our individual countries, we are not just being pan-Africanists, we are also being true nationalists, because what makes West Africa more prosperous will make each of our individual countries more prosperous.

I urged my colleague Heads of State to give enthusiastic support to Community decisions, and build rapidly our Community. Our peoples deserve no less, and the objectives of peace, progress and prosperity will, thus, be within our reach, realising the historic purposes of ECOWAS'', the President posted on his Instagram page.

Speaking on ''Kokrokoo'' on Peace FM, Kwamena Duncan touted the achievements of President Akufo-Addo for Ghana and Africa at large and therefore was without doubt, he deserved to be the Chairman of ECOWAS.

He cited the President's fearless character to stand against any kind of African oppression and his active involvement in ensuring free trade in Africa as some of the virtues that need to be extolled when the name of President Nana Akufo-Addo is mentioned.

''Every side you turn Akufo-Addo, an amazing extraordinary leader. I congratulate him'', he said.
