The coup leader in the West African country, General Abdourahamane Tchiani, had at a meeting with ECOWAS delegation, led by General Abadulsalami Abubakar (Retd), in Niamey on Saturday, promised that the military government would return Niger Republic to democracy in three years.

Abdel-Fatau Musah, the ECOWAS Commissioner for Political Affairs, Peace and Security, told the BBC in an interview, yesterday, that the proposal was unacceptable to ECOWAS, setting the ground for a military invasion of Niger to forcefully restore the ousted President, Mohamed Bazoum to office.
