Chairman of its Parliament’s Standing Committee on Political Affairs, Peace, Security and African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), Edwin Melvin Snowe (Jnr) has appealed to West African leaders to join hands together to restore normalcy in Mali.
The group belives that the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Commission should be left alone to handle the Mali crisis without any form of external interference.
According to him, this would help the legislature to adequately comprehend the happenings in the landlocked West African nation and proffer a way out.
His words: ‘I would be the last person to want to sit in ECOWAS Parliament with someone who was hand-picked by a military junta to come and represent the good people of Mali. I am fundamentally opposed to that. Parliament would have to get more proactive in the resolution of the crisis to enable them have informed decisions to move forward.’
Mali has be subjected to so much political instability in recent times, with two coups occurring in less than one year.
