GOVERNMENT OF LIBERIA RESPONDS TO THE SITUATION IN NIGER 

Date:

MONROVIA – The Government of the Republic of Liberia has received with utter displeasure reports of attempts by elements of the military of the Republic of Niger to oust the constitutional and democratically elected government of President Mohamed Bazoum

This sad incident is reported to have begun Wednesday, July 26, when Liberia, one of Africa’s growing democracies, was commemorating its 176th Independence anniversary, signaling to the rest of the continent the benefits of democratic governance, rule of law, and peace.

The Government of Liberia condemns in no uncertain terms this unlawful, illegal, and unconstitutional action being perpetrated by elements of the armed forces of Niger and sees it as an affront to the democratic will of the peaceful people of Niger who chose their leaders in a democratic process.

The Government of the Republic of Liberia calls for the immediate withdrawal from the presidency, the military forces that have cordoned off the presidency, and the unconditional release of President Bazoum and his family.

Liberia fully aligns itself with the position of the Economic Community of West African States, the African Union, the United Nations, and all friendly democratic governments condemning the event in Niger.

The Liberia Government has made it unequivocally clear that it stands opposed to any act of unconstitutional means of ascendency to power while reiterating its zero tolerance to any and all forms of unconstitutional and undemocratic means of ascending to power.

Meanwhile, an Extraordinary Session of the Summit of the Authority of ECOWAS Heads of State and Government is this Sunday, July 30, 2023, taking place in Abuja, Nigeria on the situation in Niger. His Excellency Dr George Manneh Weah President of the Republic of Liberia has designated the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Dean of the Cabinet Ambassador Dee Maxwell Saar Kemayah Sr to represent him and the Government.
