Buhari Returns From Mali Without Any Success But Hope
President Muhammadu Buhari has returned from Bamako, Mali, after many hours of consultations and closed-door meetings meant to mitigate the political crisis in that country. The meetings were attended by the host President, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita; Presidents Machy Sall of Senegal, Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana and Alassane Ouattara of Cote d’Ivoire.
A resistance group, M5, is insisting that the Constitutional Court must be dissolved, and the President resign before peace can return to the country.
Speaking to newsmen on the outcome of the meeting, the Chairman of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS, President Mahamadou Issoufou said that while disagreements remained the sub-regional organisation would do all it could to mitigate the political crisis in Mali.
There is a follow up meeting scheduled for Monday.
