The coup leaders in Niger Republic have agreed to open dialogue with the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) over the current political situation in the country.

This is based on the outcome of the negotiations between the coup leaders led by General Abdourahmane Tchiani and a delegation of Nigerian Islamic scholars led by the national leader of Jama’atu Izalatil Bid’ah Wa Iqamatus Sunnah (JIBWIS), Sheikh Abdullahi Bala Lau.

As earlier reported by Naija News, the two groups met on Saturday in Niamey to discuss the political crisis in Niger Republic.

Following the deliberations, Niger Republic’s Prime Minister, Ali Mahamane Lamine Zeine, was quoted to have said General Tchiani gave the green light for talks with ECOWAS and was optimistic the talks with ECOWAS would take place in the next few days.

He also expressed optimism that the sanctions against the country would be lifted.

“We have agreed and the leader of our country has given the green light for dialogue. They will now go back and inform the Nigerian President what they have heard from us. we hope in the coming days, they (ECOWAS) will come here to meet us to discuss how the sanctions imposed against us will be lifted,’’ he said.
