“We strongly condemn the tough sanctions imposed by ECOWAS and UEMOA on Niger and demand that they be lifted immediately,” Niger’s RTN state television channel quoted the union’s statement. “We also condemn Nigeria’s actions, which cut off electricity supplies to our country

in violation of the bilateral contract.” The Union also expressed support for the country’s military who came to power in Niger and “liberated the people from France’s dictation.”
