Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has faulted 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 of COVID-19 response in the sub-region.
ECOWAS leaders had on Thursday appointed President Muhammadu Buhari champion of the COVID-19 response at an extraordinary summit held by video conference.
The ECOWAS leaders during the conference commended Nigeria’s approach in fighting the coronavirus disease.
According to the leaders, other Presidents would be available to support President Buhari in the fight against the virus.
Meanwhile, Femi Fani-Kayode while reacting to the appointment faulted ECOWAS decision.
He said appointing President Muhammadu Buhari who could barely manage himself as the champion of COVID-19 response was a great mistake.
The former minister made this known in a tweet via his official handle.
He wrote; “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?.”
