ECOWAS may lift Mali sanctions today says Jonathan as ECOWAS mediator

ECOWAS may lift Mali sanctions today says Jonathan.

Jonathan says the organisation would decide today, being Friday whether it would lift the economic sanctions against Mali.

Nigeria’s former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan being a mediator for ECOWAS and speaking in Mali’s capital said the measures imposed on the country by ECOWAS was “unfortunate”.

West African leaders have been soliciting and asking that Mali Junta’s ruling return power to civilians after a coup which removed president Ibrahim Boubacar Keita on 18th August.

Retired colonel Bah Ndaw has been appointed as interim president, by a Junta appointed committee. He is  set to govern for at most 18 months before arranging elections.

Colonel Bah Ndaw will be sworn in today, 25th September 2020 alongside junta leader Colonel Assimi Goita, who will serve as interim vice president.

Jonathan said, “ECOWAS doesn’t want any sanctions in any part of the community”. He said ECOWAS was “eager” to make a decision on the sanctions as it was threatening to cripple the nation’s economy.

He however added that it was up to the Ghanian president current ECOWAS leader Nana Akufo-Addo to announce the decision.
