Gathered Monday at the extraordinary summit, the leaders of the Community of States of West Africa had approved a series of recommendations to resolve the political crisis facing Mali since June. They had ruled out the forced departure of president Ibrahim Boubacar Keïta, known as " IBK "and appealed to" the sacred union " of Malians that the country does not fall into chaos. They had also brandished the threat of "sanctions" for the recalcitrant.

" I asked him to give his resignation, so that we can form a true government of national unity ", said the religious leader during the press conference of the opposition.

" Mali is neither a people submitted and resigned himself. It is not necessary that one seeks to distract us, " added the imam Dicko. "It is necessary to restore the nation of mali for Malians and for Malians ", he added, in a critique of the initiatives foreign.
