ECOWAS Set to Restructure, Reduce Commissioners from Fifteen to Seven

Leaders of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) have commenced restructuring the institution for a more effective service delivery to benefit all citizens in the region.

Chairperson of the ECOWAS Council of Ministers, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway said the restructuring, as part of broad reforms, would reduce the number of commissioners from 15 to seven.

While giving her opening remarks at the one-day extraordinary session of the council of ministers, Botchway said the restructuring also aimed at creating a more cost-effective administrative structure.
