Niger Suspended from the African Union

The African Union (AU) suspended Niger from all its activities following last month’s military coup.

The AU Peace and Security Council called on all of its member states and the international community to refrain from any action that could legitimise the junta in Niger.

It reiterated calls for the coup leaders to release the elected President Mohamed Bazoum.

The West African regional grouping ECOWAS has already threatened military action to reinstate him.

Niger’s junta has said that civilian rule cannot be restored for three years, but ECOWAS have dismissed this as unacceptable.
