ECOWAS Mediator to The Gambia, President Buhari.

The High Level ECOWAS mediation mission to The Gambia led by Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has been pushed forward to Friday. Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant (Media and Publicity), Mallam Garba Shehu, said the postponement was at the instance of President Yahya Jammeh.

“In accepting to postpone the visit earlier planned to take place on Wednesday, President Buhari, who is mediating alongside Mr. John Mahama, the immediate past president of Ghana said the delay notwithstanding, the mandate of the ECOWAS will be accomplished,” Shehu said.

He added: “President Buhari reiterated the appeal on Monday by ECOWAS leaders that the Gambian leaders do everything they can to douse the tension in the West African country, which has led citizens to leave the country due to political uncertainty.

“The Nigerian leader said ECOWAS is committed to the resolution of the crisis through inclusive dialogue with respect to the constitution and the will of the people of Gambia.”
