Buhari considers wider consultation as Jonathan briefs on Mali crisis

The Ex President Goodluck Jonathan lauds hus Successor, Mohammadu Buhari for keeping up with the legacy projects.



President Buhari is to consult with major leaders of Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) nations for a lasting solution to the political crisis rocking the Republic of Mali.

Buhari dropped the hint yesterday when he received the sub-regional body’s Special Envoy to the landlocked country, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, alongside the President of ECOWAS Commission, Mr. Jean-Claude Kassi Brou, who came to brief him on the situation of things in the West African nation at the State House, Abuja.


Lauding Jonathan for a good job, Buhari stated: “We will ask the President of Niger, who is the Chairman of ECOWAS, to brief us as a group, and we will then know the way forward.”


Speaking to News men he lauded the president saying Let me use this opportunity to commend Mr. President publicly. I have already sent a letter of appreciation. It is a good gesture.


“Completing the railway programme is good. It shows that the President is going on with the legacy projects of the previous administrations. That is the way to go.


“I thank Mr. President, the Minister of Transportation and others that made it possible.”


He described his relationship with the Nigerian leader as cordial, when prodded.
