Shehu Sani Responds to ECOWAS Delegation Sent to Niger Republic for Coup Negotiations

Former Kaduna Central lawmaker, Shehu Sani, shared his thoughts on the delegation dispatched by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to negotiate with the coup plotters in Niger Republic.


Led by former Nigerian military leader, Abdulsalami Abubakar, the delegation aimed to engage with the military officers who seized power in a recent coup.

ECOWAS Delegation’s Objective:

The ECOWAS Commissioner for Political Affairs, Peace, and Security, Abdel-Fatau Musah, emphasized that the military option was the last resort and that the delegation sought to prepare for potential contingencies.

He stressed the importance of demonstrating their ability to take decisive action when necessary.

The delegation, led by Abdulsalami Abubakar, arrived in Niger to initiate discussions with the junta.


Sani’s Appreciation and Skepticism:

Shehu Sani expressed his appreciation for the diplomatic effort led by Abdulsalami Abubakar to engage with the situation in Niger Republic.

He commended the initiative as a suitable approach to address the crisis in the country.

However, despite acknowledging the positive step, Sani voiced his skepticism regarding the likelihood of the delegation’s visit resulting in a complete resolution of the situation.

He expressed doubts that President Bazoum’s release and the restoration of his government would be achieved through this diplomatic mission.


As the ECOWAS delegation engages in negotiations with the coup plotters in Niger Republic, Shehu Sani has both praised the diplomatic initiative and expressed reservations about its potential outcomes.


The situation remains complex, and the success of the delegation’s efforts remains uncertain.

Time will tell how the situation in Niger Republic unfolds and whether the negotiations will lead to a positive resolution.
