Following the coup in the Republic of Niger that has upended the constitutional political leadership in the West African country, the Chairman, of the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS, President Bola Tinubu will host a special meeting of the regional leaders on Sunday, July 30th in Abuja.

This is contained in a statement signed on Friday in Abuja, by Dele Alake, Special Adviser to the President Special Duties, Communications & Strategy.

President Tinubu as Chairman of ECOWAS, had earlier in a statement he personally signed condemned the current political situation in that country, and promised that ECOWAS and the international community would do everything to defend democracy and ensure democratic governance continues to take firm root in the sub-region.

US Vice President Kamala Harris and United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres in separate telephone calls on Thursday evening with President Tinubu also affirmed the support of the US and UN for the position taken by ECOWAS and the Nigerian leader to restore constitutional order in Niger.
