For ‘defending and promoting democracy’, ECOWAS to honor Pres. Buhari with Democracy Icon award

President Muhammadu Buhari is set to receive the Democracy Icon Award by the Economic Community of West African States.

ECOWAS Chairman and Guinea Bissau’s President, Umaro Embalo, on Tuesday, March 7, said this is in recognition of Buhari’s achievements in the defence and promotion of democracy as a system of government throughout the subregion.

According to a statement by presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, Embalo said this at a bilateral meeting with Buhari in Doha, Qatar.

According to him, the Nigerian leader had done more than any other to support democratic governments in West Africa, just as he had done in waging battles against the emergence of non-democratic regimes.

“For this, said the ECOWAS Chairman, President Buhari will have his name on the Roll of Honor in the community’s new headquarters building upon its completion in Abuja, so that future generations of West African citizens will know about the greatness he achieved and to copy his laudable examples,” he said.
