The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) is concerned that the Economic Community of West Africa (ECOWAS) has threatened to use military force against the military junta in the Niger Republic. The Northern part of Nigeria will suffer greatly if this takes place.continie Reading
The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) gave the military junta in the Niger Republic a deadline to relinquish power and restore the democratically elected President Mohamed Basoum, who had been deposed a few weeks previously.
This deadline has reportedly been met, according to Bendelnews, creating questions. Yerima Shettima, president of the AYCF, cautioned that Nigeria, particularly the northern area, would suffer greatly if ECOWAS elected to employ military force to overthrow the military junta in a recent interview with Channels Television.
He prohibited the use of force by the African Union and the regional group led by President Bola Tinubu against the coup plotters.
Considering that military control is no longer favored in Africa, the conference has additionally advised the coup leaders to begin the transitional plan immediately in order to restore democratic authority to the country within a year.
Shettima advised President Tinubu and ECOWAS to employ communication and diplomacy to break the country of West Africa’s political deadlock.
