In a stunning turn of events, the Nigerien political landscape was rocked on Thursday morning as the nation’s soldiers boldly seized power from President Mohamed Bazoum, defying the cautionary message delivered just a day prior by the esteemed Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Bola Tinubu. This audacious act of military intervention has sent shockwaves throughout the region, casting a shadow of uncertainty over the future of Niger’s democratic governance.
In a stunning turn of events, President Bazoum found himself ensnared in the clutches of detention, commencing in the early hours of Wednesday, as a group of audacious soldiers brazenly endeavored to orchestrate a coup d’état.
In the early hours of Thursday, it has been reported that the soldiers, in a momentous display, declared the commencement of a coup d’état through a televised broadcast.
In a momentous proclamation, Colonel Major Amadou Abdramane, flanked by a cohort of approximately 10 esteemed officers, boldly declared through the airwaves that the esteemed National Council of the State Guard of the Nation has unequivocally resolved to “terminate the prevailing regime that has become all too familiar to you.”
The recent occurrence can be attributed to the exacerbation of the security predicament in Niger, coupled with subpar governance in the realms of social and economic administration, as per their assertions.
The valiant soldiers resolutely reiterate their unwavering endorsement of all the solemn commitments diligently undertaken by the esteemed nation of Niger.
In a resolute declaration, ECOWAS, under the astute leadership of its esteemed Chairman, Tinubu, has unequivocally denounced the preceding endeavor, cautioning that the esteemed regional entity, in conjunction with the international community, shall not tolerate any form of disturbance to the sacrosanct fabric of constitutional governance within the sub-region.
