Farida Umar Bakori made the remarks while explaining the group’s position on the use of military operations in Niger to restore democracy at a press conference organized by the group.
She said it was unthinkable to take military action or fight with Niger, given the long historical, cultural, religious, political, economic and people-to-people ties between Nigeria and Niger.
In his speech, the president of the association added that all countries help each other in the security situation and Niger has helped Nigeria many times from sabotage and terrorism, more based on the response of refugees from the Northeast and the West.
Hajiya Farida Omar said there was also an agreement that the two countries would never be hostile or fight each other, so there should be no war in Niger.
Bakori said that ECOWAS’ position on the use of the army is that the soldiers used will be from Nigeria and Senegal, and given the way the army works, there is no doubt that Nigeria is facing an economic crisis. He made a lot of comments about their fight with the police.
We therefore appeal to the President of ECOWAS and the President of Nigeria, Bora Ahmed Tinub, not to rush into a war with no end date that would also lead to mistreatment of both countries.

The group also reminded Tinub that the slave war was only taking place in Niger, including other countries such as Burkina Faso and Mali, as well as Russia, which wanted to expand its occupation to African countries.
For these reasons, the president of the association said they appealed to ECOWAS President Tinub to add time to the reconciliation talks and to revisit the extremely difficult measures and sanctions imposed on the country. Niger.
The organization also advised the Nigerian government not to use Nigerian money to fight, but to use it for the development of the country, investing in areas such as electricity, agriculture, education and security.
