“We returned to Bamako this afternoon to continue consultations with key stakeholders as Malian authorities begin the implementation of their plans for the restoration of a civilian administration,” the Former Nigerian President shared.

“The Ecowas_Cedeao mediation team expects to have fruitful engagements that would bring clarity on the mechanisms for a transition government that is about to be inaugurated,” Goodluck Jonathan further said.
