Former President, Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday met with President Muhammadu Buhari over issues relating to Mali.
President Buhari Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, noted that his principal expressed delight that the Mali situation is getting solved, due to interventions by leaders of the Economic Community of West African States.
The statement was titled “President Buhari delighted at successes recorded by ECOWAS in Mali.”
Adesina quoted the President as saying that “We can’t do hop, step and jump like other developed nations of the world, but one is delighted at the successes recorded.”
The presidential aide also quoted the former President telling Buhari that the mission handed over to him is almost fulfilled, as a government with a largely civilian face has 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.”
He further stated that the Chairman of ECOWAS, President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana would formally brief West African leaders soon.
