Buhari Urges ECOWAS To Stop Military Rule In Mali

President Muhammadu Buhari has charged West African leaders to stop the military regime of Assimi Goïta in Mali and ensure transition to a civilian government.

Buhari reportedly made this call on Saturday at the 59th Ordinary session of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of ECOWAS in Accra, Ghana.

He stated that, ”At this Summit today, we are expected to review a number of important reports dealing with various issues of concern to our organisation and people. In doing so, we must take realistic and practical decisions which will positively impact our citizens.”

Buhari said, ”Some of those decisions, necessarily will have to do with evolving political and security situations in our sub-region as well as evaluate the health of our organisation with the hope of repositioning to serve our people and sub-region better.”

He added that, ”While democracy continues to develop in our sub-region, recent events in Mali are sad reminders that vigilance remains a crucial imperative to protect people’s aspirations to freely choose the form of Government they want.”

He also disclosed that, ”Pressures are needed to ensure that the transition process in Mali, which is halfway to its conclusion, is not aborted.”
