Ousted Burkina Faso Interim President, Michel Kafando on Wednesday confirmed that he has returned to power and that a civilian transitional government has been restored.

 

Addressing journalists at the foreign ministry in the capital, Kafando said, “I have returned to work, the transition is back and at this very minute is exercising the power of the state.”

 

It would be recalled that the coup leaders had agreed to return to their barracks, with the signing of a deal with the army that apparently defused the standoff sparked by last week’s coup.

 

This development became possible on Tuesday night after the marathon talks in Abuja, where West African heads of state had sought to break the impasse fuelled by angry threats on both sides.
