Senate Seeks Common Visa & Currency In West African Countries

The Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu moved a motion on Wednesday that all member countries of the Economic Community of West African States should adopt a common currency,
which would be a legal tender in all West African countries.

 Ekweremadu also suggested that  common visas for visitors travelling to any of the West African countries should be adopted so as to mark the  40th anniversary of the sub regional body, ECOWAS.

  2. A step in the right direction. United we are strong and can accomplish great things. Divided we are weak and will never amount to much. All countries joined by the Niger River (most of ECOWAS) have a common history. We are family.

  7. Good ke? Common currency and common visa? Una wan copy European Union but don't have the infrastructure they have to protect their citizens and you believe it'll work? Think again!!! So if someone is on a watchlist in Nigeria, same person can obtain Ghanian visa and then stroll into Nigeria because you can't track him!!! Where's the security infrastructure to act as a buffer? How does Nigeria bearing the weight of other "satellite" countries like Benin, Niger, Chad etc affect the Nigerian economy and yet it's a good idea. Ekweremmadu...think and THINK AGAIN but you move senseless motions for cheap publicity. It's a completely futile and ridiculous effort
