With barely 83 days left in his regime, President Muhammadu Buhari will be conferred with the Democracy Icon Award by the Economic Community of West African States.
The Chairman of the regional bloc and President of Guinea Bissau, Umaro Embalo, revealed this at a bilateral meeting with Buhari on the sidelines of the ongoing United Nations Conference on Least Developed Countries in Doha, Qatar.
Embalo noted that the award recognises Buhari’s achievements in the defence and promotion of democracy as a system of government throughout the sub-region.
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.
