Tomori, NCMP – Today, His Excellency Mr. Bah N’daw as President and Colonel Assimi Goita as Vice President as a Civilian administration. This new administration has been saddled with the responsibility of returning normalcy and stability to the government of Mali.
It’s worthy of note that the former president of Mali, Ibrahim Boubacar Keita was ousted in a bloodless military coup in August 2020, after several interventions of forestalling such occurrence by the ECOWAS team, led by the Immediate past Nigerian president, Goodluck Jonathan.
Mali’s designated interim president, retired colonel Bah Ndaw, has reportedly made his first public appearance in a meeting with a regional mediator earlier on Thursday.
The last coup d’etat in Africa was in june 2019 on the Ethiopian government, but failed; This was the last time such was attempted. The coup d’état on the Malian government remains the latest to happen after the successful Sudanese coup in April 2019.
The team has therefore been given an 18-month-long task of restoring normalcy, stabilizing the country, uniting the people, and overseeing the process that will produce the next democratically elected president of the beautiful country of Mali.
