Kashim Shettima has warned Nigerians against hauling curses on the country as a result of the hardship, stating that it would be impossible for abusers to benefit from a system they have abused.

The 65th Ordinary Session of the Authority is holding at the Presidential Villa in Abuja where he is expected to pass on the torch to another leader.

The Military leaders of Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso rule out returning to ECOWAS even as President Bola Tinubu leads Heads of State of the 15-member bloc in a Summit in Abuja to persuade them to return.
