Ghana’s former Coup leader and President, Flt Lt Jerry John Rawlings, met the new coup leaders in Mali.

The Malian military leaders are in Ghana to attend an Extraordinary ECOWAS meeting to discuss political developments in Mali. The ECOWAS meeting was chaired by President Akufo Addo.

At their meeting, the former President urged the new leadership in Mali to use the transition period to exhibit exceptional leadership for the country and usher her into a prosperous era.

He urged the Malian leadership to mobilise their people into taking up productive activity through a positive vision to boost the country’s development.

He also advised them to empower and encourage the people to own their political climate and to improve on the quality of multiparty democracy that Western powers “have hung around our necks”.

Former President Rawlings also encouraged the transitional unit to govern with humility and diligence and inspire the people to fight and defy corruption and injustice.

He said he was dutifully passing on ECOWAS leadership’s concerns while sharing his own political experiences and observations.
