 According to reports, the Niger Republic military junta is intending to recall its ambassador to Nigeria after talks with a mission from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) broke down.A development that has been drawing attention since military forces toppled president Mohammad Bazoum of the Niger republic a few days ago continues to do so. Niger's coup leaders were given a week to restore democratic rule by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), which is headed by President Bola Tinubu. In addition to the military crackdown, Nigeria also turned off the country's electricity.
Niger has been experiencing a crisis, but President Tinubu has recently dispatched a delegation to the country in an effort to mediate. Many people are keeping their fingers crossed that the intervention of the team led by former military head of state general Abdulsalam Abubakar will bring peace and stability to the area.
The Punch said on Friday that the junta led by general Abdourahmane Tchiani had canceled a meeting with the team and would be recalling its ambassadors to Nigeria, France, Togo, and the United States. They would also be pressing to remove French and American troops from the region. An insider said, "the ongoing talks have failed," as was reported by the Punch correspondent. In an official statement, "the Junta has announced that it will recall Niger's ambassador to Nigeria, Togo, France, and the United States."Apparently, "the Junta has just announced that it will Evict French and US troops in the Niger republic, noting that all MOU agreements between France and Niger have ended." Many people in the public are unhappy with the new development and believe that negotiations are their only choice at this time.
