Bwala clarifies Tinubu’s non-involvement in Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger’s exit from ECOWAS

Daniel Bwala, a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has absolved President Bola Tinubu of any responsibility for the decision of Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger to withdraw from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).

Bwala stated that the withdrawal of these countries from ECOWAS is primarily driven by the dynamics of proxy trade conflicts between Russia/China and NATO, rather than any leadership issues under President Tinubu.

The military juntas in Burkina Faso, Mali, and Niger announced their withdrawal from ECOWAS, citing it as a “sovereign decision” that was made promptly.

Bwala emphasized that critics who attribute the withdrawal to Tinubu’s leadership are spreading misinformation. In a social media post, the former lawmaker urged Nigerians to focus on their own nation instead.

He wrote, “The withdrawal of these three West African nations from ECOWAS has nothing to do with President Tinubu’s leadership, despite what the naysayers claim. It is primarily driven by the dynamics of proxy trade conflicts between Russia/China and NATO.”

Bwala expressed confidence that Nigeria, not being at war with either bloc, would be able to find a path towards lasting peace within ECOWAS under President Tinubu’s leadership. He encouraged the people to concentrate on addressing their longstanding issues as a nation.
