Buhari Meets Jonathan In Aso Rock Over Mali Crisis

President Muhammadu Buhari met with his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathan at the State House, Abuja on Tuesday.

The meeting, according to Bashir Ahmad, Personal Assistant on New Media to the President was to discuss the Mali political crisis where Jonathan was sent by Nigeria as a Special Envoy.

Jonathan led a Special Envoy of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to Mali where a political crisis has led to multiple tensions in the country.

As it stands, the international media has reported a possible mutiny in Mali after junior officers detained Senior officers in the Army base.

The latest development follows the failure of the mediation by ECOWAS and others to end the crisis in the country with involved parties not ready to sheathe their swords and bury the hatchet.

Recall that five West African Presidents failed to reach a peace call in the country.

The leaders of Ghana, Ivory Coast, Niger, Nigeria and Senegal on Thursday headed to Bamako to meet Malian President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita have struggled to restore law and order to the country.

Jonathan on Tuesday was expected to brief the President on his follow up to the first visit.
