Nwonye said that, the summit would have as theme: “Fight Against Terrorism.“

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari is expected to attend the ECOWAS Heads of State and Governments part of the summit on Saturday, Sept. 14.

The Nigeria News Agency reports that, the ECOWAS Heads of States and Governments are meeting on counter terrorism in an effort to intensify action against the menace.

The meeting is part of a multi-level preparatory process to involve all levels and sectors of the society in the fight against terrorism and communal clashes among the ECOWAS countries.

The Ministerial meeting is expected to deliberate on the Action Plan on Counter Terrorism in ECOWAS member nations.

The plan was developed during the meeting of the sub-region’s Chiefs of Defence Staff and Chiefs of Security and Intelligence Services on counter-terrorism in August in Niamey, Niger Republic.
