Niger Coup: Ecowas leaders in closed door meeting

The Economic Community of West African States under the leadership of Bola Ahmed Tinubu, president of the federal republic of Nigeria has begun a closed door meeting.
The session started after opening remarks by His Excellency Bola Tinubu and while rendering his speech he stated that Ecowas is committed to protecting democracy and human rights in Niger Republic.
“The regional bloc must engage the coup leaders in the neighbouring country to reinstate President Mohamed Bazoun.” the Ecowas Chairman said (President Bola Tinubu).
Recall that Techrectory earlier this week reported that Leaders from the West Africa bloc scheduled a meeting for Thursday as a timely summit on the coup in Niger after military chiefs in the country defiled an ultimatum to restore the democratically elected president. Ecowas said it was seeking a diplomatic solution but has not ruled out using force in a bid to resolve the crisis.
”Important decisions are expected from the gathering in Nigeria’s capital Abuja, according to a statement from the 15-nation organisation on Tuesday. Struggling to stem a cascade of coups among its members since 2020, the bloc gave the troops who seized power on July 26 until last Sunday to reinstate Bazoum or face the potential use of force. But the coup leaders remained defiant and the deadline passed without action.” according to Punch.
