Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has opposed the decision of Presidents of West African countries under the aegis of ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, to appoint President Buhari as the ”Champion” that will coordinate the COVID-19 response in the sub-region.
During a teleconference held recently, ECOWAS leaders had hailed President Buhari for the manner in which Nigeria has so far handled the Coronavirus pandemic and also appointed him as the ”Champion coordinator” for COVID-19 response in the sub-region.
Reacting to the appointment, FFK tweeted that it is a huge mistake as President Buhari can barely manage himself. He said ECOWAS will regret the appointment given to Buhari because it was an error.
”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 & now you ask him to manage a sub-region of 400 million people?”.
