President Muhammadu Buhari has held bilateral discussions with some Presidents of other West African countries.
Naija News reports that the talks were held on the sidelines of the ongoing 56th Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government.
West African leaders reported to have met with Buhari include President Alassane Quattara of Cote d’Ivoire; Patrick Talon of Benin Republic; Julius Maada Bio of Sierra Leone; George Weah of Liberia and Rock Marc Kabore of Burkina Faso.
It was gathered that the 56th session of the ECOWAS is expected to consider among other sub-regional issues, the recommendations on the proposed single currency regime for the sub-region.
Recall that leaders of the region had agreed on a single currency for the sub-region 30 years back, to boost cross-border trade and economic development.
This online news platform reports that the currency would be called “Eco.”
