The Director of Media and Publicity for the dissolved All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential Campaign Council, Bayo Onanuga, has reacted to the latest coup in Gabon.
Naija News had reported that the Gabonese President, Ali Bongo, was ousted by the military, days after winning the presidential election.
Soldiers in the country were said to have appeared on Gabonese national television in Gabon to announce they had taken over power.
The coupists also announced the annulment of Saturday’s election and the dissolution of the democratic government in the country.
Reacting, however, to the latest development, Onanuga, in a post via his Twitter handle, described the coupists as greedy tyrants.
The former media aide to Nigeria’s President Bola Ahmed Tinubu wrote: “Yet another military coup in Africa. Democracy on a roll back, no thanks to sit-tight, greedy African tyrants.”
Naija News reports that the latest coup in Africa comes amid the move to resolve the removal of a democratically elected president in Niger Republic, Mohamed Bazoum.
However, both the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the African Union (AU), which have rejected the coup in Niger, are yet to react to the coup in Gabon as of the time of filing this report.
