President Muhammadu Buhari is hosting the Extraordinary Summit of the Economic Community of West African States Authority of Heads of State and Government to mark its 40th Anniversary.
The main item on the agenda of the summit will be the current political situation in Burkina Faso.
President Buhari has condemned the coup d’etat in Burkina Faso and called for immediate restoration of civil transitional authority.
He urged the Defence and Security Forces of Burkina Faso to keep faith with the agreed transitional programme for the return of the country to democratic rule.
It is also expected that global issues like climate change may be deliberated upon at the summit as a fall out of the global summit on climate change which attracted world leaders to France.
