The summit is to find an amicable solution to Mali’s political turmoil.

Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah welcomed the Heads of State at the VVIP Lounge of the Kotoka International Airport, Sunday morning.

Those who have arrived are Liberia President, George Manneh Weah, President of Niger, Mohammed Bazoum, and former President of Nigeria, Goodluck Jonathan, who is the Special ECOWAS Mediator on Mali’s political crisis.
