Akufo-Addo's Good Leadership Made Him ECOWAS Chairman - Mireku Duker

Chairman of the Minerals Income Investment Fund (MIIF), Hon. George Mireku Duker has congratulated President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his appointment as Chairman of 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.

Hon. Mireku Duker believes the good and exemplary leadership of President Akufo-Addo is what earned him the Chairman position at ECOWAS.

To him, the President's new position goes to tell volumes about his performance and so urged Ghanaians to also give him a second term just as the Heads of African States have reposed confidence in Nana Addo.

Hon. Mireku Duker took the opportunity to extend Ghana's gratitude to ECOWAS.

"We thank all the fifteen countries for the honour done to President Nana Akufo-Addo and Ghana," he said on 'Kokrokoo' on Peace FM.
