Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has tackled the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) for appointing President Muhammadu Buhari as the ‘Champion that will coordinate the COVID-19 response in West Africa.”

Fani-Kayode described Buhari’s appointment as a mistake.

Buhari’s appointment was disclosed by his spokesperson, Femi Adesina.

Adesina had said Buhari’s appointment was made during a video conference on Thursday.

Reacting to the appointment, the former minister warned that ECOWAS will regret the appointment given to Buhari because it was an error.

In a tweet, the former minister stated that the President can barely manage himself, hence the possibility of managing a sub-region was in doubt.

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 and now you ask him to manage a sub-region of 400 million people?”
