BREAKING: ECOWAS makes fresh move to tackle coup in Niger

Following the Economic Community of West African State (ECOWAS) meeting in Abuja, the chairperson of the regional body, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has resolved to engage the actors in the Niger coup.

Tinubu stated that ECOWAS opted for diplomatic negotiations and dialogue as the bedrock of the approach, which reaffirms their commitment to democracy, human rights, and the well-being of the people of Niger.

His words:

“We must engage all parties involved, including the coup leaders, in earnest discussions to convince them to relinquish power and reinstate President Bazoum. It is our duty to exhaust all avenues of engagement to ensure a swift return to constitutional governance in Niger.

“More specifically, as leaders of our respective nations, we must recognize that the political crisis in Niger not only poses a threat to the stability of the nation but also has far-reaching implications for the entire West African region.

“By remaining steadfast in our adherence to the principles of democracy, good governance, and the rule of law, we can restore peace, stability, and prosperity in the Republic of Niger, thereby fostering an environment conducive to growth and development for all.”

After Tinubu’s remarks, the meeting entered into a closed-door session.
