Mali: Jonathan Briefs Buhari, Says Junta Wants ECOWAS Sanctions Removed by iwaeda: 6:54pm On Aug 26, 2020
The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), again on Monday received briefings from former President Goodluck Jonathan, who is the Economic Community of West African States Special Envoy to Mali, on the current situation in the country.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, the President at the meeting held inside the Presidential Villa, Abuja, said the priority in Mali now should be securing the country, which is largely occupied by terrorists.

The statement was titled, ‘President Buhari receives updates on Mali situation from Special Envoy, Goodluck Jonathan.’

Adesina said the meeting between the two leaders came ahead of an extraordinary virtual summit by ECOWAS heads of state and leaders, scheduled for Friday.

“About two-thirds of Mali is occupied by terrorists, and it makes common sense to secure the country, rather than pursuing individual interests,” he quoted Buhari as saying.

The President was further quoted as saying that the sub-region would take a common position on the issue when the leaders meet on Friday, hoping that an amicable and generally acceptable position to all interested parties would be arrived at.

The presidential aide said Jonathan updated Buhari on dialogue with the military coup leaders, who are seeking to stay in power for three years, before holding elections.

Adesina said Jonathan said the military leaders want ECOWAS to lift sanctions put in place, as it was already affecting the country, “but we told them that the authority to do such was only in the hands of ECOWAS heads of state.”

“They call themselves National Committee for the Salvation of the People. We asked them to allow ousted President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita to return to his personal residence, where he would be given tight security, but they said he could travel abroad, and not return to answer questions they may have for him.

“We also told them that what would be acceptable to ECOWAS was an Interim Government, headed by a civilian or retired military officer, to last for six or nine months, and maximum of 12 calendar months.

“The Interim Government would then organise elections to restore full constitutional order,” Jonathan reportedly told the President.

The former President was further reported to have disclosed that his team was allowed to meet with the ousted President, who confirmed that he resigned voluntarily, adding that he was no longer interested in returning to his former position.

GEJ u have tried, I'm equally surprised & impressed that Buhari can be so concerned about Mali as though part of his cow business is there. ECOWAS sanctions can't be lifted that easily else the JUNTA guys wont have anything to put them under pressure. On a final note, Charity begins at home...the leaders of this country can't be more serious in restoring peace in Mali while Nigeria is tumbling.

The people's cry and prayer has reached the heavenly. No matter the actions and steps taken by african authorities to restore the formal president will be void. Authority against authority this are the signs of the endtime. Jesus is coming soon be prepared

Buhari your own house is on fire! You people should sit down here and find a way out, if not disaster is just hanging and waving at y’all.

After watching the video of Enugu commissioner police accusing unarmed Igbos of carrying weapons on a National Television, imagine forcing them in front of the press to admit they were armed, just to justify the killings on Igbo soil, I just weep for this country. You people will be pushing Nigerians to the wall, they will still be maintaining, when they pick up arms when it happens to be the only way out, then you people will know that people are not dummies.

All this DSS in the South east should be posted to the North, they seem to have this ability to intercept intelligent informations more than their brothers in the North. And since eastern senior police officers are not doing well in the north, they should swap them for this professional shooters we have in the east so that the professional shooters can go to the north and end Boko Haram and Fulani killers(that’s if they even want to stop it).

Nigeria is low key fighting a war. People won’t see this, big war is happening and we think it’s joke.

May Allah help us all

No peace for the wicked, they shouldn't remove the sanction. You can't use dirt to clean dirt. You can't take over a democratically elected government force because they're corrupt.

you always use every opportunity to attack Buhari, should Nigeria stop being an ECOWAS country because of our security issue? No. We'll win this battle of insurgency soon by God's grace and all Nigeria enemies shall be put to shame.

OBJ would have been a better candidate. But the man is getting too old now. Can't afford to be moving around.

On the flip side, sanction on Mali will not be helpful. Because that would degrade the might of the country. Of course na Naija go suffer am. Terrorists will just be using their as their base.

Send GEJ to ask BH what they want. Send him to ask those BANDITS and KILLER HERDSMEN what they want.

Ghana is systematically chasing Nigerians. Nigerian students are killed in Europe almost everyday. 100 student died in a country in Europe within a short period and nobody was charged even though we were told they were murdered.

We get problems full Nigeria but we dey rush they go help others solve their problems.

GEJ done turn Bubu errand boy like this oh!

“About two-thirds of Mali is occupied by terrorists, and it makes common sense to secure the country, rather than pursuing individual interests,”
What is wrong with this president? Nigeria is not safe under your leadership yet talking about securing Mali. 
You're rehabilitating & forcing the atrocious BH terrorists on the beleaguered northern populace in Nigeria which they've vehemently rejected.

Yet you want their terrorist brethren in Mali to leave while calling on ECOWAS to secure the country.Perhaps you wants them to immigrate down here.So what happens to your own country Mr.hypocrite? See the man zombies are defending.

The Ecowas sanction is to push the people in revolting against the army...

Things might get so tough, the people would clamour for a return to norm.
