History

ECOWAS was established on 28th May 1975 through the Lagos Treaty and has 15 Member States: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Cote D’ivoire, Ghana, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Senegal, Sierra Leone, The Gambia and Togo.
The Vision of ECOWAS is the creation of a borderless region where the population has access to its abundant resources and is able to exploit the resources through the creation of opportunities under a sustainable environment.

Mission

The Mission of the Permanent Mission of Nigeria to ECOWAS is to serve as the vital link between Nigeria and ECOWAS. The Mission facilitates Nigeria’s engagement with ECOWAS Member States within the framework of the sub-regional organisation, as well as links the ECOWAS Commission with relevant MDA’s responsible for operationalization of programs in Nigeria. It therefore, shapes Nigeria’s policies and engagement in ECOWAS with a view to accruing benefits for Nigerian citizens who are by extension ECOWAS citizens.
