The Nigerian President also recommended the immediate release of all the remaining senior Government officials in detention, without pre-conditions.
President Buhari disclosed this in series of tweets on Friday evening via his Twitter handle @MBuhari thus:
“At our ECOWAS leaders meeting today, I put forward the following recommendations for the military leadership in Mali:
“The immediate release of all the remaining senior Government officials in detention, without pre-conditions.
“A transition process, to be completed in not more than 12 months, and which shall include the representatives of Malian stakeholders.
“The government needs to do these in order to enjoy the cooperation and collaboration of regional and international community, and to allow the easing of sanctions imposed on Mali.
“Nigeria will, alongside ECOWAS, provide the necessary logistics support to facilitate the conduct of elections to re-establish democratic governance in Mali.
“I would like to thank once again, the ECOWAS Mediator in Mali, @GEJonathan, as well as my colleagues in the sub-region, who have continued to demonstrate sincere commitment to the resolution of this crisis. Nigeria stands in full solidarity with the people of Mali.
Precise Post recalls that the military junta in the country toppled the civilian leadership in a bloodless coup detar last week.
The military leadership had few day ago released the president after detaining him for some days. This was after he appeared before the Jonathan-led ECOWAS mediation team and said he was no longer interested in his former position.
