President Umaro Sissoco Embalo of Guinea-Bissau took his place, and he expressed gratitude to the other heads of state who had chosen him to fill the position.

President Embalo will have a one-year term that could be extended.

On Monday, September 7, 2020, President Akufo-Addo succeeded Mahamadou Issoufou, the previous leader of Niger.

This was extended through June 2021 to assist with ongoing institutional reforms aimed at cutting the number of ECOWAS Commission statutory appointees from 15 to seven and also to reduce operational costs.
