Mali Crisis: Buhari, West African leaders meet again


President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday, 28 August, 2020, joined other West African leaders in another extraordinary summit geared towards solving the lingering crisis in Mali.

The summit was presided over by Chairman ECOWAS and President of Niger Republic, Mahmadou Issoufu with President Buhari participating virtually from the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

This is the second virtual summit necessitated by the crisis in Mali since the military deposed the country’s democratically elected President, Ibrahim Keita, who later announced his resignation.

Earlier this week, the junta told ECOWAS envoy to Mali, former President Goodluck Jonathan and other representatives of the regional bloc that it wanted a three-year rule before handing over power to a democratically elected government.
