Niger Coup: President Tinubu Reveals ECOWAS ‘Last Option’

Date:

Chairman of ECOWAS and President of Nigeria, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu assured those intervening in the political crisis in Niger Republic that the military option will be the last resort for the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). He said the military option will only happen after all diplomatic options have been exhausted.

Receiving the Nigeria Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs led by the Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar III, at the State House, Tinubu said that the alternative of kinetic intervention in the Niger Republic are not exactly ejected from the boat.

According to a statement issued by his special adviser on media and publicity, Ajuri Ngelale, President Tinubu insisted that any forceful removal of a democratic or current government is “wholly unacceptable.”

“I must thank you for your several visits to Niger Republic, Your Eminence, but you will still have to go back. My fear has been confirmed in Gabon that copycats will start doing the same thing until it is stopped. We are neighbours with the Niger Republic, and what has joined Nigerians together with their great people cannot be broken.

“Nobody is interested in a war. We have seen the devastation in Ukraine and Sudan. But, if we don’t wield the big stick, we will all suffer the consequences together,” the President warned.
