Buhari and Jonathan

For the fourth time in one month or so, President Muhammadu Buhari, on Thursday met with his predecessor, Goodluck Jonathn for briefing on the situation in Mali, where soldiers sacked the civilian government recently.

Presidential spokesman, Femi Adesina, quoted the President as expressing delight that the Mali situation had calmed down considerably, following interventions by leaders of the Economic Community of West African States.

“We can’t do hop, step and jump like other developed nations of the world, but one is delighted at the successes recorded,” Buhari was quoted as saying after the former President, reportedly told him that mission given him by ECOWAS leaders was almost fully done, as a government with a largely civilian face had been inaugurated.

“The President has been sworn in, the Prime Minister, and ministers too. The military has only four portfolios for serving officers, and the government has taken off.

“The council, which will work like parliamentarians, will be inaugurated soon,” Jonathan reportedly told the President.

He added that the Chairman of ECOWAS, President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana would formally brief West African leaders soon.

After the intervention by the military in Mali, ECOWAS had insisted on a transition government led by a civilian, and return to constitutional order within 12-18 months, among others.
