President Buhari left in complete disbelief after hearing about Niger Coup, describing it as an unwelcome turn of events

Immediate past Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has expressed concern over the recent coup in the Niger Republic, saying the development is unwanted and has left him “shocked”.

The former president took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the situation, describing the events in Niger as unexpected and unwanted. Buhari emphasized the importance of democracy and expressed concern for the safety of President Mohammed Bazoum and his family.

“As to be expected, I, like millions of other Nigerians, am shocked by the latest turn of events in Niger Republic,” he said.

Buhari also expressed his satisfaction with the response of West African leaders, particularly highlighting the role of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu and the ECOWAS in effectively dealing with the matter.

“It is heartening to note that the ECOWAS, under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, is already dealing effectively with the matter, and our hope and prayers are that the unwanted situation will be completely reversed, and the safety and wellbeing of President Bazoum and his family ensured,” Buhari added.

Meanwhile, France, the former colonial master, has demanded the restoration of the government and declared their non-recognition of the coup leaders. Kenyan President William Ruto also expressed concern, describing the takeover as a serious setback for Africa.

“The aspirations of the people of Niger for constitutional democracy were subverted by an unconstitutional change of government,” he said.

West African leaders will convene in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, to discuss the coup. Nigerian President Bola Tinubu, who also heads the ECOWAS regional bloc, assured that they would do everything to defend democracy and ensure its firm establishment in the region.

The European Union has threatened to cut aid to Niamey, stating that the coup poses a serious threat to stability and democracy. President Bazoum and his family have been confined to their residence at the presidential palace since the coup took place.
