Speaking on the meeting via his twitter handle, President Buhari said he received a comprehensive report from the former President on the political situation in Mali.

Today I received a comprehensive report from the ECOWAS Special Envoy to Mali, former President @GEJonathan, on the political situation in the country. Regarding the way forward, we will ask the President of Niger, who is the Chairman of ECOWAS, to brief us as a group,” President Buhari tweeted.

The Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, had recently appointed Dr. Jonathan to head the political reconciliation in Mali where there is leadership tussle.

The Jonathan – led committee had recommended the government of national unity in the country but the opposition group had turned down the recommendation.
