Senate rejects Tinubu’s request for military intervention in Niger

Senate approves President Buhari’s N2.3 trillion loan request

The Nigerian Senate is currently engaged in a  executive meeting.

Senate President Godswill Akpabio has called on the senators to back President Bola Tinubu’s decisions regarding Niger Republic, however, they have chosen not to comply.

The senators are in disagreement with the Nigerian government’s decisions to deploy soldiers and cut off power supply to Niger Republic, as these actions have already been carried out.

Despite Akpabio’s plea, the senators have not demonstrated any support for Tinubu’s appeal.

On Friday, the Senate agreed to hold a comprehensive discussion on Tinubu’s plea concerning potential military intervention by ECOWAS against the military leaders and coup plotters in Niger Republic.

Tinubu has also put forth additional penalties against the military officials who seized control in Niger.

According to sources, the senators are objecting to Tinubu’s actions.

“The senators are in an Executive closed door Session now (without the press or anyone) discussing about whether to use force/military action in Niger Republic. Majority of the Senators are against deployment of soldiers and are even against the power supply cut-off as already announced by the Nigerian government.

“Senators are still speaking and most of the Senators are vehement against any deployment of soldiers in any form. Deliberations are ongoing and Senate President is appealing for us to endorse the steps President Tinubu has taken so far, but the Senators vehemently rejected his suggestion and appeal,” the source revealed.
