Finance minister of Niger Republic sheds tears on National TV after receiving instruction to account for all the stolen money of the country in 48 hrs or face execution by firing squad!

In a dramatic turn of events, soldiers in Niger Republic have claimed to have removed President Mohamed Bazoum from power, signaling a military takeover of the country. The coup was announced on national television by Colonel-Major Amadou Abdramane, who cited the deteriorating security situation and poor social and economic management as reasons for the regime change.

Following the ousting of President Bazoum, the new military Junta wasted no time in addressing issues of corruption within the previous government. Former Finance Minister, Ahmat Jidoud, has been given a critical ultimatum to account for all the stolen money of the nation within the next 48 hours. The soldiers have warned that failure to comply with their demand could result in his execution by firing squad.

The situation in Niger Republic has sparked concern and condemnation from the international community. The United States, a pivotal ally in the region, has called for the immediate release of President Bazoum and expressed support for his democratically elected leadership. The United Nations and France have also condemned the coup and called for the protection of constitutional order.

Niger, a crucial partner in the fight against armed groups in the Sahel region and irregular migration, now finds itself grappling with uncertainty and potential instability. The military takeover marks the seventh coup in the West and Central Africa region since 2020, posing challenges for Western efforts to maintain stability in the area.

The ousted President Bazoum’s whereabouts remain unknown as the military Junta asserts its control over the country. As the situation unfolds, neighboring countries and regional blocs like ECOWAS have expressed their commitment to uphold democratic governance and resist any attempt to destabilize Niger’s government.

Amidst this tense political climate, Ahmat Jidoud, the former Finance Minister, faces a daunting deadline to account for the alleged embezzlement of public funds. The fate of Niger Republic hangs in the balance as the nation navigates through this uncertain period of political transition and potential accountability for past misdeeds. The eyes of the world are now fixed on the country, awaiting developments and hoping for a peaceful resolution.
