President Muhammadu Buhari was yesterday briefed by ECOWAS Special Envoy on Mali, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, on latest developments regarding the political impasse in the landlocked West African country.

Buhari expressed delight at the news broken by the Nigerian ex-president during a visit to the State House, Abuja. He was told that the situation had calmed down considerably, following interventions by ECOWAS leaders.

Jonathan said the mission given him by the sub-regional body was almost accomplished, as a government with a largely civilian face had been inaugurated.

He added that ECOWAS Chairman and President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, would formally brief the leaders in due course.
