Reps Minority Caucus condemns military coups in African countries

The Minority Caucus of the House of Representatives has expressed its strong displeasure at the escalating trend of military adventurism on the continent in the midst of continued worldwide condemnation of the rising incidence of military coups in various African countries.

The leader of the Minority Caucus, Hon. Kingsley Chinda, strongly denounced the deplorable occurrences in a statement.

In a statement, the leader of the Minority Caucus, Hon. Kingsley Chinda, condemned the ugly developments and said it was “extremely sad, deeply worrisome, and pathetically shameful” that the continent had seen a sudden rise in military coups in some countries over the past few years, undoing the gains made by democratic struggles for the return to civil rule in the late 1980s and 1990s.

” It is totally condemnable that in the past one decade, military putsch has taken place in Sudan, Mali, Tunisia, Guinea, Burkina Faso, Niger Republic and now Gabon. That these countries are in the Western, Northern, and Central regions of Africa, which represents more than half of the entire continent calls for serious concerns and debilitating worries.”

“confronted with the pains and miseries foisted by these sit-tight leaders on hapless citizens, who have been going through years and decades of bad governance, colossal economic hardship, serial social deprivation, deep-rooted poverty, deliberate intimidation and corrosive lack, military interventions of any guise will not only be welcomed but celebrated by citizens of these countries.

“The now-frequent coups on the continent are also adduced to the sit-tight obnoxious desires of some of these Leaders, who continuously manipulate and compromise the system to achieve their egoistic and undemocratic ambitions,” he noted.

While highlighting the dangers of military interventions into democratic governance in Africa, he admonished leaders that “happenings and recent developments on the continent are warning signs of likely dangers ahead, if not immediately checked by doing the right thing.
