Prof Usman earlier said that those of them in the North, their clerics, lawmakers, traditional rulers, and the people of northern extraction have said ‘no’ and that they don’t want war in Niger. He said that Nigerien are like their brothers, and they are closely related because of long-term relationships, intermarriage and all of that.
However, he said is insinuation is that, President Tinubu has not been spoken to Nigerians, but all they have seen is that Tinubu and his advisers are in a conference meeting with ECOWAS. He said his security advisers, service chiefs or any monster that came to talk to them. He said Tinubu did not talk to anybody but just wrote to senate to permit him to go to war.
