President Muhammadu Buhari has arrived Mali for a Peace Mission Summit meant to hold at Bamako, the capital city of the country.
He was spotted on Face mask as he arrived the airport in Bamako accompanied by his aides and some top Government officials. It is not clear if Geoffery Onyema, the foreign affairs minister was on board following his covid-19 result which came out positive some days ago.
President Muhammadu Buhari’s arrival to the Republic of Mali is a one-day visit, following the briefing by the ECOWAS Special Envoy to the country, former President Goodluck Jonathan.
This is will also be the first journey President Buhari would be embarking outside the country since the outbreak of the dreaded Coronavirus pandemic.
The President and some ECOWAS leaders led by the Chairman of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the sub-regional organisation, President Issoufou Mahamadou of Niger Republic, agreed to meet in Mali to engage in further consultations towards finding a political solution to the crisis in the country.
Other Presidents expected to participate in the Bamako meeting are the host President, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and Presidents Machy Sall of Senegal, Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana and Alassane Ouattara of Cote d’Ivoire.
