President John Dramani Mahama would on Tuesday evening leave Accra for Abuja, Nigeria, to attend the 43rd Ordinary Session of the Authority of Economic Community for West African States (ECOWAS) heads of state and government.

The two-day session would consider a number of issues including the 2013 interim report of the President of ECOWAS Commission and reports on the situation in Mali.
