Friday Olokor, Okechukwu Nnodim, Dirisu Yakubu, Gift Habib, Tunde Oyekola and Animasahun SalmanOpposition to the Economic Community of West African States’ planned military action against the junta in Niger grew on Sunday as the Nigeria Labour Congress and the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, urged ECOWAS to embrace dialogue.

Soldiers led by General Abdourahmane Tchiani had on July 26 overthrew the country’s President, Mohammed Bazoum, and kept him and his family under house arrest. But the NLC warned the regional bloc against the use of military force to remove the military junta in the Niger Republic, stating that the disadvantages outweigh the benefits.The congress claimed that such a move would only put the lives of the deposed President and his family in danger, cause the entire region, including Northern Nigeria, to become unstable, and result in the loss of many lives.
