Pan-African Parliament expresses concern on the unfolding situation in Niger

The President of the Pan-African Parliament, His Excellency, Chief Fortune Zephania Charumbira, has noted with grave concern, the unfolding situation in the Republic of Niger, which has all the trappings of an attempted coup by a section of the military.

In a statement he personally signed on behalf of the Bureau and the entire membership of the Pan-African Parliament, H. E. Chief Charumbira condemned in the strongest possible terms, the brazen attempt to undermine the sovereign will of the people of Niger by attempting to forcefully overthrow a democratically elected Government. He calls for the immediate and unconditional release of President Mohamed Bazoum and his family and urges the military conspirators to return to the barracks.

H. E. Chief Charumbira reiterated the Pan-African Parliament’s commitment to representative democracy and the rule of law and reaffirmed the Continental Parliament’s solidarity with the government and people of Niger.

He calls for global condemnation of all attempts to undermine democracy, peace and stability in Niger.

It would be recalled that PAP President H. E. Chief Charumbira, along with some members of the Bureau of PAP, had a meeting earlier in the month with President Bazoun, a former member of PAP in Niger.
