Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has lifted the sanction imposed on Mali following the removal of President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita.

Recall that the 15-nation-member of ECOWAS slapped sanctions on Mali after the August 18 military coup, which toppled President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita.

ECOWAS, in a statement, said: “Heads of state and government have decided to lift sanctions” in order to “support” the handover to civilian rule.

“It noted the publication of a transition roadmap and the status alloted to the military leader in the interim government.”
