Mali: Buhari, West African leaders meet again

The President Muhammadu Buhari, on Friday, joined other West African leaders in another extraordinary summit aimed at finding lasting solutions to the crisis in Mali.

Buhari is participating in the virtual meeting from the Council Chamber of the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

The Chairman, Economic Community of West African States and President of Niger Republic, Mahmadou Issoufu, is presiding over the summit.

This is the second virtual summit to be held on Mali crisis since the military deposed the elected President, Ibrahim Keita, who later announced his resignation.

The junta had earlier this week 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.
