The military had just taken control of the country in West Africa, but it has yet to submit to criticism from both inside and beyond the continent. The former governor of Lagos State wants additional partners in the effort to restore democracy, even though regional leaders like Tinubu have been working towards it. He stated to the UN General Assembly in New York that “we are discussing with the military commanders in Niger. As ECOWAS Chairman, I want to assist in re-establishing democratic administration in a way that tackles the political and economic difficulties the country is now facing, especially the violent extremists who want to sow unrest in our area. I extend a friendly hand to everyone who sincerely supports this objective.
He reiterated that democracy is the greatest approach to ensure a better society in his speech on Tuesday. We must affirm democratic administration as the best protector of the people’s sovereign will and well-being, according to Tinubu. Military takeovers are improper, as is any lopsided civil political organization that upholds injustice. “The wave that is sweeping over sections of Africa does not show favoritism towards coups. There is a need for answers to enduring issues.
