ECOWAS to deliberate on grey areas as Jonathan briefs Buhari

After receiving an update on Mali by former President Goodluck Jonathan, President Buhari says Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS, at the behest of their Chairman, President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana, may confer again to discuss outstanding grey areas in the situation.

Mali has appointed a civilian as Interim President who will stay in office for 18 months and lead the country back to constitutional order, after the military had taken over power in the country.
That was part of irreducible demands by West African leaders before sanctions imposed on the country could be lifted.

However, according to the special envoy, the military leaders have yet to satisfy ECOWAS demand of a full civilian as Vice President, and what his roles would be in government.
“That position is currently being held by a serving military officer who was also one of the leaders of the take-over,’’ Jonathan observed.
