Mr Buhari was appointed on Thursday with other leaders from the sub-region urged to render their support to the Nigerian leader.

The appointment has drawn criticism from Nigerians who accused the president of not doing much to tackle the pandemic disease in his own domain let alone being saddled with the responsibility of overseeing that of the region.

A pro-democracy group, Concerned Nigerians, recently said the habit of Mr Buhari addressing Nigerians once every two weeks on how the deadly virus was being tackled by his administration is unacceptable.

The group called on the Nigerian leader to come out of hiding and show leadership or better still step aside.

On Twitter, most users on the micro-blogging site kicked against the president’s appointment saying he is incompetent. Below are some reactions captured by this reporter.
