Former President Goodluck Jonathan Tuesday told the Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House in Abuja that the political crises in Mali was getting out of hand and needs Buhari’s intervention.
Former President Jonathan was appointed by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) as a special envoy to lead the sub-regional body’s mediation mission in Mali.
He told Buhari that his Committee had recommended a Government of National Unity but the Malians had objected to their recommendations.
Jonathan said there is a social political imbroglio in Mali that could affect the West African suburb.
According to Jonathan, his Committee had worked on the Niger Republic Minister of Finance subcommittee of Foreign Ministers of West African States.
President Buhari said he will wait for further briefing of the ECOWAS Chairman and join other Heads of Government from the region to take a decision.
The former president who just returned from Mali is expected to facilitate dialogue with all principal stakeholders in the West African country, towards resolving the sociopolitical situation in Mali.
Former President Jonathan seized the opportunity to thank President Buhari for naming the Agbor Railway station after him and briefed him of the Itakpe railway project that was initiated by his regime.
He condoled with President Buhari on the loss of his long standing friend, Malam Ismaila Isa Funtua who passed away Monday evening.
