Jonathan Briefs President Buhari On Mali Crisis (Photos)

Former Nigeria’s president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday brief President Muhammadu Buhari on the political situation in Mali.

This is coming as corollary efforts by West African leaders to restore stability to the country.

Freshreporters reported that Jonathan is ECOWAS Special Envoy to the Republic of Mali.

President Buhari and four other ECOWAS leaders had visited Bamako, Mali, last month, followed by a virtual extraordinary summit of the sub-regional body.

Dr Jonathan, who was in Mali from Monday to Thursday, last week, recounted his meetings with the stakeholders. The meeting included political and religious leaders, Ambassadors of US, France, Russia, Germany, European Union, and other important personalities key to peace and cohesion in the country.

The main opposition group, M5, he said, continued to insist on the resignation of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, a position not acceptable to ECOWAS, which insisted only on democratic process in change of power within its jurisdiction.

Jonathan said:

We told them that no international organization, including the African Union (AU), United Nations (UN), and others, would agree with their position.

We continued to emphasize the need for dialogue
