FG Demands Return Of Constitutional Order In Guinea, Condemns Coup

The Nigerian Government has condemned the coup that ousted President Alpha Conde of Guinea, calling for the immediate and unconditional restoration of constitutional order in the country.

Guinea’s special forces have claimed to have captured the president, detained him and “dissolved” the country’s institutions.

In a statement, the spokesperson of ministry of foreign affairs, Esther Sunsuwa (Mrs), said the coup is a violation of the ECOWAS Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance.

“The Nigerian Government is saddened by the apparent coup d’état that has taken place in the Republic of Guinea today, in clear violation of the ECOWAS Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance.

“The Government of Nigeria strongly condemns and rejects any unconstitutional change of government and therefore calls on those behind this coup to restore constitutional order without delay and protect all lives and property.” the statement read.

Conde is an ally of President Muhammadu Buhari and Bola Tinubu, a National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
