ECOWAS Rejects 3-Year Transition Plan by Niger Junta

The Three – Year Power transition plan of Niger Junta has been rejected by the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) led by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the Chairman. 
ECOWAS Commissioner for Political Affairs, Peace and Security, Abdel-Fatau Musa stated this during an interview with the BBC on Sunday.

TEC News gathered that General Abdourahamane Tchiani, leader of the Niger junta, said in a televised broadcast on Saturday night that the army will hand over power to the civilian government within the next three years.

But in the interview, Abdel-Fatau Musa said that General Tchiani’s proposal is just a smokescreen for dialogue and diplomacy.

Earlier Saturday, former Military Head of State, Gen Abdulsalami Abubakar (rtd), led a delegation of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to Niger in a last-ditch diplomatic effort to reach a peaceful solution with the Niger junta.

The delegation met with Prime Minister Ali Lamine Zeine who received them at the airport and led them to the presidential palace and fter meeting with General Abdourahamane Tchiani, they later met with the ousted Niger’s president Mohamed Bazoum.

It was the first peace talk led by Gen Abdulsalami Abubakar that ECOWAS activated its standby force.

It said Niger junta had ignored the ultimatum to reinstate President Mohamed Bazoum.
