Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, on Wednesday evening, received President Faure Gnassingbe of Togo in his office at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The Togolese President was newly elected Chairman of ECOWAS.
A statement by the Senior Special Assistant on media and publicity in the Office of the Vice President, Laolu Akande, said Osinbajo assured him of Nigeria’s support to him and the regional body.
He said that the Buhari administration was pleased that President Gnassingbe visited Nigeria almost immediately after his election to lead the regional body.
“Nigeria will support you in every way and we are very happy with your election,” the statement read.
“I know that our President, President Buhari will give every measure of support required because he would want you to succeed very much.”
Osinbajo said that Nigeria would continue to play an active role in ECOWAS.
The meeting was shortly after Osinbajo received a message from the President of the Republic of Niger, Issoufou Mahamadou delivered by the Minister of Petroleum of the Republic Niger, Foumakoye Gado.
