Coup: Tow the Soldiers Back to the Barracks, Atiku Tasks ECOWAS, AU

African Union AU ECOWAS atiku coup
Atiku Abubakar
Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar has condemned the recent military coup in Gabon regarding the truncation of civilian rule by the soldiers as unnecessary.

Atiku Abubakar who was reacting to the recent military coup on President Ali Bongo of Gabon, stated that everything should be done to ensure civilian rule is the only system of governance across African countries.

He, therefore, charged the African Union and Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to deploy diplomatic ways of ensuring that the soldiers return to the barracks as the civilian government takes over.

Atiku stated "The coup in Gabon stands condemned. Democracy and democratic governance have come to stay as a preferred form of government, and everything should be done to enthrone, nurture, and sustain it.

"As I suggested in the case of the Niger Republic, the ECOWAS and African Union authorities should open a window of diplomatic engagement that will pave the way for the soldiers to return to the barracks.

"The latest coup brings the number of military takeovers in Central and West Africa to 8 since 2020. This is worrisome and calls for introspection. We may have to focus on dealing with the disease and not the symptoms that birth causes.
