Bashir El-Rufai, son of former Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai, made a bold claim about the capabilities of the Nigerian military in a recent statement. According to El-Rufai, the military is fully equipped to conquer the capital of Niger Republic, Niamey, in a record-breaking 13 hours.
In a recent remark, Kaduna State Governor Nasir El-Rufai cited a video uploaded on Twitter that lauded the army of Niger Republic. El-Rufai stated that, while he does not yearn for war, he hopes that the Nigerian military will demonstrate its strength by quickly capturing Niger in less than 13 hours.
In a recent remark, Twitter user @chimaobi_nteoma expressed their surprise at Tinubu, a renowned figure, intending to fight with Nigerian military.
In response to a contentious video, Governor El-Rufai stated, “While I firmly reject the idea of war, it is unfortunate that such provocative videos exist.” However, I can only hope that the Nigerian military will show their strength in Niger by quickly capturing Niamey in a record-breaking 13-hour span.”
In a recent incident, the Niger Republic’s military regime has severed diplomatic relations with Nigeria. This decision comes after the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) failed to restore expelled President Mohamed Bazoum to power.
In a momentous development, Nigeria’s president and Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Bola Tinubu, has written to the Senate, pleading for their backing for a military intervention in neighboring Niger Republic against the military junta.
