Chukwuma highlighted that ECOWAS’ readiness to resort to war reveals a disturbing level of corruption within its leadership. He lamented the lack of proper consideration before threatening military action against Niger.
He commented, “It’s regrettable that the present government is not engaging in sufficient consultations, leading ECOWAS down a misguided path. Our President, Tinubu’s inclination towards war with Niger is deeply disappointing.”
Chukwuma contextualized the coup in Niger, explaining that it stemmed from rampant corruption and escalating hardships faced by the citizens. He noted that the Army’s intervention was initially welcomed by the people as a response to these grievances.
“Instead of combating corruption and condemning the Niger President’s wrongdoings, they are focusing on opposing the coup d’état. This approach is misguided. It’s evident that the leaders within ECOWAS are themselves tainted by corruption and are turning a blind eye to it,” Chukwuma stated.
He drew attention to more severe issues afflicting other ECOWAS nations, suggesting that a lack of intervention might be due to pervasive corruption even within the military.
Chukwuma acknowledged the challenges that Nigerians are currently enduring and urged for a different approach, saying, “Nigerians are going through a tough period. They are enduring hardships with remarkable patience. It’s time we declare that enough is enough.”
He expressed relief that many voices are opposing the idea of a military intervention in Niger, underscoring the need for an alternative solution. Chukwuma called for intervention to ease the suffering within Nigeria, whether it’s driven by the government or divine intervention.
“Should the government fail to act, divine intervention will eventually come, likely causing chaos. A revolution is essential for Nigeria now. It’s time to bring about positive change as the situation worsens,” Chukwuma concluded.
