According to XE online currency converter, $500,000 translates to 293,898,906.73 West African CFA Franc (XOF), the currency in use by Guinea Bissau.

The donation followed a call for assistance by the country for support to conduct her legislative elections.

According to the twitter handle of the Presidency @NGRPresident, Foreign Affairs Minister Geoffrey Onyema and the President of the ECOWAS Jean Claude Brou, led the delegation to deliver the items.
