Tinubu’s ECOWAS Presidency Re-election: NASRE Advocates Democratic Institutions Strengthening

The Nigerian Association of Social and Resourceful Editors (NASRE) congratulates President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his re-election as the Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). This re-election, which occurred during the 65th Ordinary Session of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, underscores President Tinubu’s exemplary leadership and commitment to regional development.
Tinubu's ECOWAS Presidency Re-election: NASRE Advocates Democratic Institutions Strengthening
President Tinubu, who initially assumed the ECOWAS chairmanship on July 9, 2023, in Guinea-Bissau, has once again been entrusted with steering the regional bloc. His re-election is a testament to the confidence his fellow leaders have in his vision and capabilities.
In his acceptance speech, President Tinubu emphasized his dedication to strengthening democratic values and advancing the interests of ECOWAS. He announced the appointment of Senegal’s President Bassirou Diomaye Faye and Togo’s President Faure Gnassingbé as Special Envoys to Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger Republic, highlighting his proactive approach to addressing regional challenges.
NASRE acknowledges President Tinubu’s efforts and calls upon him to continue prioritizing the following to ensure the region’s safety and the advancement of ECOWAS’s objectives and values:
Strengthening Democratic Institutions: Upholding the democratic values that ECOWAS stands for is crucial. President Tinubu should continue fostering strong, transparent, and accountable institutions that support democratic governance across member states.
Enhancing Regional Security: Addressing security challenges, particularly in countries experiencing political instability, is essential. Continued efforts in diplomatic engagement and conflict resolution, as demonstrated by the appointment of special envoys, will be vital in maintaining regional peace and stability.
Promoting Economic Integration: Advancing economic cooperation and integration among ECOWAS member states should remain a priority. Facilitating trade, investment, and economic policies that promote growth and development will benefit the entire region.
Encouraging Social and Human Development: Initiatives aimed at improving education, healthcare, and social services are fundamental. Investing in human capital development will empower citizens and foster sustainable development.
NASRE reaffirms its support for President Tinubu and his vision for ECOWAS. We are committed to collaborating with his administration to promote the progress and stability of West Africa, ensuring that the region continues to thrive and uphold the values upon which ECOWAS was founded.
Once again, congratulations to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu on his re-election. We look forward to a period of continued growth, peace, and prosperity under his leadership.
Signed:
Comrade Femi Oyewale
President

Lagos Lawmakers Invite Attorney-General Over Supreme Court Judgement On LGs

 

commend Police for successful operation against kidnappers

The Lagos State House of Assembly has invited the Attorney-General of the State, Mr. Lawal Pedro, to appear before it to explain the Supreme Court judgement on local governments in the country.

 

Lagos Lawmakers Invite Attorney-General Over Supreme Court Judgement On LGs

The lawmakers said there was a need for better understanding of the decision of the apex court in relation to some provisions in the Constitution of the country.

A seven-man panel of the Supreme Court had declared on Thursday that the 774 local government councils in the country should receive their funds directly from the Federal Government as well as manage such funds themselves being a tier of government.

The court further declared that allocations to local government councils run by caretaker committees were illegal.

Ruling after a voice vote by lawmakers at plenary on Thursday, the Speaker of the Assembly, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, ruled: “There is a need for us to seek clarification and understanding of this judgement. It will be good to invite the Attorney-General to brief us and give his understanding so that we do not run foul of the judgement.”

Meanwhile, the Lagos State House of Assembly has resolved to write a letter of commendation to the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, over the successful operation by men of the force that led to the elimination of nine kidnappers in the state recently.

A letter of commendation is also to be sent to the Commissioner of Police in Lagos State, Adegoke Mustapha Fayoade, for the efforts of the policemen which led to the fruitful operation.

Speaker Mudashiru Obasa, who presided over the plenary, said the police and men of the force who took part in the operation needed to be commended.

Dr. Obasa agreed with members of the House that letters be sent to Egbetokun and Fayoade further charging them not to relent in keeping the State safe for residents.

He stressed the need for stakeholders to fast-track considerations for the creation of state police to support the federal police system.

The Majority Leader of the House, Hon. Noheem Adams, had earlier recalled how the police launched the operation against some kidnappers in the Ladipo area of the state and eliminated nine of them.

According to him, there has been calm in the area since the operation was carried out.

Noheem added that the Ikorodu area of the state which hitherto had issues of kidnapping now enjoys relative peace.

In another development, the House of Assembly has applauded the First Lady of Nigeria, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, for seeking to encourage subsistence agriculture.

The Speaker said it was a beautiful idea to encourage Nigerians to have gardens in their houses arguing that this would help to create food sufficiency.

He recalled that schools had farms in the past adding that current situations call for a return to that period.
