Nigeria: International Rights Activist Condemns Coup in Niger Republic

International rights activist, Alhaji Musa Saidu has condemned the coup in Niger Republic , saying there is no alternative to democratic government which guarantees the rights and freedom of the people.

Saidu who is President International Human rights Commission , ecology and marine, Africa also called on Africa leaders and President Bola Tinubu of Nigeria to thoroughly investigate the circumstances that gave rise to the military take over of government in Niger republic.

He further advised Tinubu to focus strongly on redressing internal security challenges in Nigeria, adding that Nigeria at the moment should deploy its military strength towards resolving the myriads of security problems across the length and breath of the country.

“This is not really a time for Nigeria to ignore her own internal security problems. We cannot pretend to be giant of Africa when all is not well with our internal security.

“We have enough security challenges in the country that should demand the attention of our military. Sokoto, Zamfara ,Katsina and several states in the north have enough security problems, the government should be more concerned about addressing our own problems first.

” We cannot pretend that all is well internally. We must first tackle the security problems in our home front.

Travelling from Kaduna to Abuja , we all know the security challenge “

” In the south east non state actors are ordering residents to sit at home for days against their will. Businesses , market places are forced to close by non state actors . We have enough trouble in our country.
