President Muhammadu Buhari has warned that despite over 13,000 cases of COVID-19 in Nigeria, the pandemic is yet to reach its peak

This he said while warning against relaxing in the fight against the pandemic.

The ECOWAS Commission further came up with an economic recovery plan to help member-states to recover from COVID-19 shock.

This, the President said today during a virtual meeting with the President of the Commission, Jean Kassi-Brou.

Buhari promised to provide logistic support to enable the sub-region receive and distribute procured and donated medical equipment using Abuja as the hub for the distribution.

The Nigerian leader expressed ECOWAS appreciation for the “swift interventions made to the West African Health Organisation (WAHO) and the Africa Centre for Disease Control by the Jack Ma Foundation.”

He commended development partners such as the European Union, African Development Bank, France and Germany for their “financial contributions in the procurement of medical supplies.”

Speaking, Kassi-Brou advocated additional strategies to assist the sub-region in fighting the health and economic impact of COVID-19.

He listed them as advocacy at continental and global levels including the G20, World Bank, United Nations and the African Development Bank, to get their support to negate the health and economic damage to the ECOWAS sub-region.
