President Muhammadu Buhari on Thursday in Abuja pledged that Nigeria would continue to meet all its obligations to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Commission.

Information about the pledge is contained in a statement issued by Mr Femi Adesina, the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity.

Adesina stated that the President made the pledge when he received the new President of the Commission, Mr Marcel Alain de Souza at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He reported the President as assuring the new ECOWAS Commission boss of Nigeria's support and to continue to play leadership role in the Commission.

The President said that the Federal Government would also strive to show good example to others by meeting all its financial obligations to the sub-regional organisation.

Adesina also reported that the ECOWAS President had commended President Buhari for Nigeria's recent successes in the war against terrorism and insurgency.

He said that with terrorist attacks spreading to countries like Mali, Burkina Faso, Cote D'Ivoire and others, security had to be accorded adequate priority by ECOWAS.

"Without security, there can't be development and progress,'' the new ECOWAS Commission President stressed.
