On Sunday, September 5, 2021, the former president announced it on his verified Facebook page.
Jonathan landed in Bamako with the ECOWAS Mediation Team. They will be overseeing Mali's transition from military to democracy.
Following the violent protests in Mali, Jonathan was nominated by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) as a special envoy to mediate for peace in the country in 2020. The demonstrators asked that the country's democratically elected president resign.
After the military deposed the president in 2020, the situation worsened. The military has been pressured by ECOWAS and other international bodies to hand up power to the civilian administration. Finally, the military has consented, and Jonathan and his crew have arrived in the nation to monitor the process.
Jonathan has been the face of African democracy since he left office in 2015.
