Prof Leopoldo Amado, ECOWAS Commissioner for Education, Culture, Science & Technology died in Dakar on Sunday after a brief illness, according to official sources.
From Guinea Bissau, the professor joined ECOWAS in 2018 as one of the 15 Commissioners at the 15-nation regional economic bloc.
The cause of his death is unclear, but it follows the death on Jan 7th of the ECOWAS Commission’s Secretary General Dr. Nelson Magbabdeola in Abuja.
Dr. Magbagbeola, a Nigerian, will be buried this week.
May their souls rest in perfect peace!
