President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the attempted coup in Niger Republic, saying “any illegal effort to depose a democratically elected government is not only despicable, but also unacceptable to democratic governments around the world.”
Buhari who left Nigeria for the United Kingdom on a medical miss on yesterday condemned the act on telephone conversation with his Niger counterpart.
Speaking in a telephone conversation with Mahamadou Issoufou, his counterpart and outgoing President on the situation in Niger Republic, President Buhari warned that “the international community is hostile to the change of government by violent and unconstitutional means.”
“It is utterly naive to attempt the removal of an elected government by force.
“Military political adventurers should respect the will of the people and respect constitutional order. I’m particularly concerned about the negative impact of coups on African stability, peace and progress.
