Buhari meets Jonathan on Mali

President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed delight that the Mali situation had calmed down considerably, following interventions by leaders of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
In a statement by Femi Adesina, in Abuja, Buhari spoke when he received updates on the Mali situation from the Special Envoy/Mediator to the West African country, former President Goodluck Jonathan, on Thursday.
He said: “We can’t do hop, step and jump like other developed nations of the world, but one is delighted at the successes recorded.’’

While giving updates, Mr Jonathan said the mission given him by ECOWAS leaders was almost fully done, as a government with a largely civilian face has been inaugurated.
“The President has been sworn in, the Prime Minister, and Ministers too. The military has only four portfolios for serving officers, and the government has taken off.
“The Council, which will work like parliamentarians, will be inaugurated soon,” Mr Jonathan said.
He added that the Chairman of ECOWAS, President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana would formally brief West African leaders soon.
