Tinubu didn’t seek military intervention in Niger – Senate clarifies

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

Contrary to popular belief, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu did not advocate military involvement in Niger, according to the Nigeria Senate.

The Senate made the announcement on Saturday, following a four-hour closed-door meeting on the crisis engulfing Niger, a West African country.

Senate President Godswill Akpabio emphasized that President Tinubu never requested permission to go to war with Niger Republic, claiming that the letter was misinterpreted in the media.

According to him, President Tinubu requested approval to implement ECOWAS resolutions as the Chairman of ECOWAS.

He said: “By the correspondence of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the Commander-in-Chief, he has not sought for the approval of the parliament or of Senate to go to war as erroneously suggested in some quarters, rather Mr President and Commander-in-Chief had expressed, and I quote, in which to respectfully solicited support in the successful implementation of the ECOWAS resolutions in the said communications.”

“The leadership of the Senate is mandated to further engage with the President and Commander-in-Chief on behalf of the entire Senate to ensure how best to resolve the crisis”.

The resolution of the upper legislative chamber followed an executive communication, which President Tinubu sought for the implementation of the resolution of ECOWAS on the political situation in Niger Republic.

Meanwhile, the red chamber told Tinubu to toe the path of diplomatic engagement in the ongoing suspension of democracy in the neighbouring Niger Republic.
