Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has blamed the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS for giving President Muhammadu Buhari an appointment as the leader of the fight against Covid-19, describing it as mistake
Recall that ECOWAS had appointed Buhari as the “Champion that will coordinate the COVID-19 response in West Africa.”
Buhari’s appointment was revealed by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina who said the appointment was made during a video conference on Thursday.
Reacting to the appointment, the former minister warned that ECOWAS will regret giving Buhari the appointment because it was an error.
In a tweet, the former minister said the President can barely manage himself, hence the possibility of managing a sub-region was in doubt.
He tweeted: “The greatest mistake that the ECOWAS leaders have made is to appoint @MBuhari as the leader of the fight against Covid-19.
“This is a cataclysmic error which they will deeply regret. He can barely manage himself and now you ask him to manage a sub-region of 400 million people?”
