As a result of the coup that ousted President Alpha Conde of Guinea, the Nigerian Government has called for a return to constitutional order in the country that is immediate and unconditional.
Special forces in Guinea claim to have captured the president, detained him, and “dissolved” the country’s institutions.
ECOWAS Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance was violated by the coup, according to spokeswoman Esther Sunsuwa (Mrs), of the ministry of foreign affairs.
Nigeria’s government is saddened by the apparent coup d’état that took place today in the Republic of Guinea, in clear violation of the ECOWAS Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance.
“The Government of Nigeria strongly condemns and rejects any unconstitutional change of government and therefore calls on those behind this coup to restore constitutional order without delay and protect all lives and property.”
Conde is an ally of President Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu, a National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
