Senator Sani Gives 13 Reasons Why Nigerians Must Not Support ECOWAS Armed Invasion Of Niger Republic

The former senator representing Kaduna Central Senatorial district, Shehu Sani, has advised Nigerians and the Nigerian government against supporting Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS)‘s military invasion of the Niger Republic.

Recall that ECOWAS while meeting in Abuja on Sunday, issued a seven-day ultimatum to the Niger Republic military to release and reinstate President Mohammed Bazoum as their legitimate Head of State and government.

Reacting to the possible military invasion of Niger Republic by ECOWAS, Senator Sani on his Twitter handle gave thirteen reasons why Nigerians should not support such.

According to Sani, Niger Republic and Nigeria are close neighbors and an armed invasion of the country means declaring war between the two countries and Nigerian states which share close border with Niger Republic would be the most hit..
