President Muhammadu Buhari Sunday, departed the shores of Nigeria for Accra, Ghana through the Nnamdi Azikwe International Airport, Abuja.

Naija News reports the President is billed to attend a one-day emergency Extraordinary Summit of ECOWAS, convened to discuss recent political developments in Mali.

Prior to the Extraordinary Summit, Buhari had met with the Special Envoy and ECOWAS mediator in Mali, former President Goodluck Jonathan, who briefed him on the latest developments in the country following his meeting with key political actors in the West African country.

Buhari’s departure was confirmed in a Twitter statement on Sunday by his personal assistant on new media, Bashir Ahmad.

He wrote: “President @MBuhari departs Abuja today, for Accra, the capital of Ghana to attend a one-day emergency Extraordinary Summit of ECOWAS, convened to discuss recent political developments in Mali.”

“The President is expected back in Abuja at the end of the one-day Summit.”

Recall that Mali’s Interim President, Bah Ndaw, and Prime Minister, Moctar Ouane were detained on Monday by army officers who were disgruntled by a government reshuffle.

The two were held at the Kati military camp around 15 kilometres (nine miles) from Bamako.

The interim president and the prime minister were installed in September under the threat of regional sanctions, with the declared aim of restoring full civilian rule within 18 months

On Wednesday, the interim leaders resigned in the presence of mediators visiting the military base.
