Niger’s military Junta bows to pressure, seeks dialogue with ECOWAS
Niger Republic military junta has bowed to pressure, and sunk to dialogue with the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, to resolve the country’s political crisis.
Nigeria’s Intervention Team, comprised of scholars from various Islamic sects, stated this in a statement on Sunday.
The team, led by Sheik Bala Lau, met with the coup leader, General Abdourahmane Tchiani, during which they deliberated on all the issues, including the ECOWAS demands to reinstate former President Bazoum.
In a statement signed on Sunday, Bala Lau said the team were in Niger on behalf of President Bola Tinubu, who approved their request to intervene.
He, therefore, told General Tchiani that the visit to Niger was to engage in constructive dialogue to encourage him and other military leaders behind the coup to toe the path of peace instead of war to resolve the crisis.
In his response, General Tchiani, who accorded the team’s warm reception, however, welcomed their intervention.
He said: “Our doors were open to explore diplomacy and peace in resolving the matter. It was painful that ECOWAS leaders did not hear our side of the matter before issuing an ultimatum to quit office.”
He further claimed the coup was well intended, adding that they struck to starve off an imminent threat that would have affected not only the Niger Republic but also Nigeria.
While apologising for not giving the required attention to the team earlier sent by President Tinubu, the coup leader explained that they were angry about the ECOWAS ultimatum.
Among the team were: Sheik Kabiru Gombe-Secretary; Sheik Yakubu Musa Hassan; Jamatul izalatul bida waikamatul sunnah; Katsina-Director Daawah, JIBWIS, Sheik Ibrahim Dahiru Bauchi- Rep Sheik Ibrahim Bauchi and Dr Khalid Aliya- Secretary General, Jammatul Nasril Islam.
Kemi Kilani News recalls that ECOWAS had asked members to deploy standby military force to restore democracy in Niger.
