President Muhammadu Buhari has sent
former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, as
his Special Envoy, to mediate and help find
a solution to the brewing crisis in Guinea
Following the dismissal of Guinea Bissau’s
Prime Minister, Mr Domingos Simoes
Pereira and his cabinet by President Jose
Mario Vaz, President Buhari had raised
concern over the unfolding political
situation in the West African Country.
A statement by the Special Adviser on
Media and Publicity to President Buhari,
Femi Adesina said that the first part of
Obasanjo’s mission was consulting with the
current Chairman of the Economic
Community of West African States
Authority of Heads of State and
Government, President Macky Sall of
Senegal in Dakar on Thursday.
“It is regrettable that while Chief Obasanjo
was still consulting with President Sall,
President Jose Mario Vaz of Guinea Bissau
proceeded to appoint and swear-in a new
Prime Minister in the person of Mr Baciro
Dja, a development that has worsened the
political situation in his country,” President
Buhari said.
He appealed for calm and called on the
leadership in Guinea Bissau to exercise
utmost restraint and ensure the
maintenance of law and order as efforts
continue to resolve the current crisis.
