Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo left here on Thursday on a day’s working visit to Mali to help build peace in the country, Ghana’s parliament has said.
A letter read out by the Speaker of Parliament Mike Aaron Oquaye said Akufo-Addo was joining other colleagues including Macky Sall of Senegal, Alassane Ouattara of Cote d’Ivoire and Mahamadou Issoufou of Niger to restore peace in Mali.
It said the visit which comes at a time Ghana had closed its entry points to prevent further importation of the novel coronavirus was at the instance of the sub-regional body, Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).
The mediation trip is part of efforts by ECOWAS to broker peace between President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita and the main opposition protest movement M5-RFP, who are calling for Keita’s resignation. Enditem
