 Abuja, Aug. 10, 2023 – President Bola Tinubu says the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is committed to return of democracy to Niger Republic.

Tinubu said this in his closing remarks at the second ECOWAS extraordinary summit held in Abuja on Thursday.

The issue at the meeting was the seizure of an elected government by a military coup which ousted a democratically elected government of President Mohamed Bazoum.

ECOWAS in its resolution decided to deploy its standby military troops immediately to restore constitutional government in Niger.

“We have exhibited great membership, dedication and patriotism and have recognised the danger facing our dear neighbour, Niger.

“All is not lost yet. The outcome of this summit is a testament to the power of collaboration and unity. We have reaffirmed our commitment to the people of Niger and the progress of the entire ECOWAS community.

“We will continue with that. And you know I’ll see from the communique of this extraordinary summit that no option is taken off the table, including the use of force as a last resort.

“If we dont do it, no one else will do it for us. We remain steadfast in our commitment to supporting Niger in the journey towards peaceful democratic stability in the country.” (GBN)
