President Bola Tinubu on Tuesday, condemned the spate of military coups in Africa describing them as wrong and unreflective of the collective aspirations of Africans.
He said the pervasiveness of coups connote “a demand for solutions to perennial problems,” and do not imply Africa’s support for unconstitutional change of government.
Tinubu said this in his maiden address to his counterparts during the ongoing debate at the United Nations General Assembly in New York, USA.
QUOTING HIM, HE SAID, “We must affirm democratic governance as the best guarantor of the sovereign will and well-being of the people. Military coups are wrong, as is any tilted civilian political arrangement that perpetuates injustice.”
He advised that member nations must work with Africa to “deter their firms and nationals from this 21st century pillage of the continent’s riches.”
