Niger Coup: ECOWAS Ready To Use Force To Restore President Bazoum

By Mohammed Bello DokaAbuja

In a strong show of solidarity with democracy, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) has issued a stern warning to the military junta in Niger Republic. The regional bloc has given the junta a one-week ultimatum to restore President Mohamed Bazoum as the legitimate leader of Niger Republic. Failure to comply with this demand will result in severe measures that might involve economic sanctions and isolation from the international community.

The military junta seized power in Niger Republic on a fateful day, overthrowing the democratically elected government of President Bazoum. This unconstitutional act has been met with widespread condemnation from both regional and international bodies, who are committed to upholding democratic principles and the rule of law.

ECOWAS, as a prominent advocate for democracy in the West African region, has taken a decisive stance against the military coup. The regional bloc firmly believes that political power should be acquired and transferred through peaceful and democratic means, with the will of the people being respected.

During the meeting of ECOWAS in Abuja, Nigeria, the organization expressed deep concern over the deteriorating political situation in Niger Republic. It emphasized that the military junta's actions are not only a violation of the country's constitution but also a threat to the stability and progress of the entire West African region.

ECOWAS has called on the military junta to immediately release President Bazoum and other detained government officials. It has also demanded the restoration of the constitutional order and the organization of free and fair elections as soon as possible.

The regional bloc has warned that failure to comply with these demands within the given one-week ultimatum will result in serious consequences. ECOWAS has the power to impose economic sanctions, suspend Niger Republic from its activities, and isolate the country from the international community.

The international community has rallied behind ECOWAS, expressing support for its strong stance against the military junta. Various countries and organizations including the USA, France and United Kingdom have urged the military junta to respect the will of the people and restore President Bazoum as the legitimate leader of Niger Republic.

As the deadline approaches, the world watches with bated breath to see if the military junta will heed the call of ECOWAS and the international community, or if they will face the consequences of their unconstitutional actions.
