Hakeem Baba Ahmed, spokesman of the Northern Elders Forum has come out to say that sanctioning and threatening to use force against Niger military Junta is only going to make things worse and not better.
According to Baba Ahmed who appeared in an interview on Channels television tonight, negotiations should take place between ECOWAS and the junta as the approach ECOWAS have taken in the past few weeks have not been successful.
In his own words as seen on Channels television tonight…
“Nigeria should be trusted to initiate and sustain negotiations with the Junta that took over power in Niger republic and is holding Bazoum. We have to do this to see whether we can make headway rather than throwing threats around. Clearly it hasn’t worked, 2 weeks or 3 weeks into the first ultimatum we have them. The first ultimatum was one week, one week came and passed, we did nothing, nothing happened. They met again and said this time, they are activating a standby force, we haven’t seen any standby force. All it is doing is just making the situation worse
