President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has urged ECOWAS member countries on the need to urgently ratify and domesticate all relevant treaties and status that will lead to the successful launch of the West African Monetary Zone (WAMZ) on January 1, 2015.

President Jonathan stated this on Friday in Abuja, through Vice President Arc Mohammed Namadi Sambo, at the 31st Convergence Council Meeting of the WAMZ.

The President, who appreciated the notable successes recorded towards the launch of the monetary union, however, lamented the consistent under performance of some member states in reducing inflation and fiscal deficit, which are critical to the successful launch and sustenance of the union.
