Tinubu Warns Against Coup Attempt in Niger

Nigeria’s President and Chairman of the Authority of Heads of State and Government of the Economic Community of West African States Bola Tinubu has reacted to reports of an alleged coup d’etat in Niger Republic.

Tinubu described the report as unpleasant developments and reiterated the ECOWAS support for the democratically elected government of the country.

“The ECOWAS leadership will not accept any action that impedes the smooth functioning of legitimate authority in Niger or any part of West Africa.

“I wish to say that we are closely monitoring the situation and developments in Niger and we will do everything within our powers to ensure democracy is firmly planted, nurtured, well rooted and thrives in our region.

“I am in close consultation with other leaders in our region, and we shall protect our hard earned democracy in line with the universally acceptable principle of constitutionalism.

“As the Chairperson of ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State, I state without equivocation that Nigeria stands firmly with the elected government in Niger and equally conveys the absolute resolve of leaders in our sub-region that we shall not waiver or flinch on our stand to defend and preserve constitutional order”

Tinubu’s stance is an affirmation of his position on assuming the leadership of the ECOWAS authority of heads of state that the regional bloc won’t tolerate undemocratic change of government in the sub-region.
