Restoring Constitutional Authority and Concerns of Exploitation:

Ohanaeze Ndigbo’s primary concern lies in the restoration of constitutional authority in Niger Republic through dialogue and diplomatic channels . The organization questions about the legitimacy of the military junta that deposed the Nigerien President and accuses him of corruption and collusion with Western countries, especially France, the USA, and the UK, to exploit Niger’s natural resources. Ohanaeze Ndigbo believes that military interventions to reinstate a deposed leader of Niger Repulic could lead to further instability and potentially worsen the political and social situation in Niger Republic.

Russian Influence and Regional Security:

Another aspect raised by Ohanaeze Ndigbo is the alleged backing of military regimes in Niger, Mali, Guinea, and Burkina Faso by Russian authorities. The organization suggests that these countries are now working together to counter the influence of Nigeria-led ECOWAS regional troops. This assertion implies that President Tinubu’s military operations in Niger Republic could potentially escalate tensions with the Ecowas member countries and heighten regional security concerns. It is important to note, with Russian alleged involvement and their support to Niger, Mali, Guinea and Burkina Faso troops to counter President Tinubu led Ecowas troops will spell doom for Ecowas member countries especially Nigeria in particular.
