This is a strategic war for protection of interests, including (surprise surprise) African interests. The US, EU and Nigeria share the same interest in this (probable) war - Nigeria's 15 billion dollar tran-Sahara gas pipeline connecting Nigerian gas to the EU, which passes through Niger and Algeria into Europe, is under construction. It could triple Nigeria's annual income when completed. Russia has an opposing interest, and the military junta in Niger are Russian allies. After the recent bombing of the Russian pipeline supplying the EU with gas, a major hit on Russia's economy, it is pretty clear a Kremlin - backed junta in Niger will not let the Trans-Sahara gas pipeline to Europe happen. The EU want the pipeline to reduce dependence on Russian supplies. The other ECOWAS nations have an interest, as they wish to deter military intervention in their own countries. The 'coup contagion' as they call it. So this whole thing is far more complex than the simple popular narrative of 'ECOWAS fighting for imperialist interests'.
And my prayer still remains: it shall not be well with all these war mongers.

If the Niger coupist are allowed to continue ruling, its as if we are allowing a flammable material close to us because counter-coup will surely happen and the things we are avoiding will still happen

War isn't the best option. Explore diplomacy & try not to fight another man's war.
This your preaching is good for the militants that uses war to take over government from a democratic leader. It is stupid to implore diplomacy that killed your parents especially when the killer is till holding the gun.

ECOWAS just want to waste lives including that of the deposed President, the junta has stated categorically that they will execute the President if there is any intervention. So who does ECOWAS want to reinstate? A man six feet under? They had better put on their thinking caps.

The junta will waste the man's life for nothing, he would be the first loser.

The invasion is not about him anyway, the countries involved are trying to protect their own interest, so him being a sacrificial lamb is OK by ECOWAS and co.

Let's wait and see how it all ends.

Oga, Niger's internal affairs is not our priority. It isn't our headache for crying out loud.
U r buying petrol at N617+, USD is N800+, cost of living & inflation are at an all-time high....yet what bothers u is the coup in Niger which incidentally over 75% of their citizens support.

Please tell Tinubu to stop deceiving himself by fighting US & France's proxy war, even that won't confer legitimacy on his administration..
Let him get to work because there is so much to do here..
Start by fixing at least one refinery

Although I don't need any invasion of Niger at this moment, but I must agree that u made sense.
However, the security implications of a war in the Sahel will have far reaching consequences in our country that can worsen the security situation in the north & perhaps the south as well.
We should consider the fact that northerners don't want this war & avoid it.
Our national security interests should supercede the economic interest of the West.
The pipeline construction can be suspended for now until peace and stability is restored in Niger

There shall not be war in Niger rather than joy that people are experiencing now with the juntas. So said the Nature (Our Mother Nature).

FreeStuffsNG:
There will be no war. The impostors and coupists will be chased out even before any attrition. Insiders will betray one another and switch sides. Besides, those perennial losers who jinxed Mr Obi, Mr Nnamdi Kanu etc with their bad luck of support have already killed the wishes of the coupists. Check my signature for free stuffs!

Being a Tinubu ass licker shouldn't deprive ur brain from functioning.
Our economy is in a deep mess as a result of the subsidy removal without a plan to cushion the effects.
Instead of focusing on our home affairs, Tinubu is rather preoccupied with invading Niger over their internal matter just to get validation from France and US.

You must be leaving under the ground to say there is nothing done to Cushing the effect of subsidy removal, 5 billion given to all states is for what?

That's grossly insufficient. Mind u, u don't solve economic problems by just giving out money. How many lives will be impacted & how much will each person get.

For instance,a state with a population of 5 million means that on the average,each person will get N1000; which can't even feed u for a day.
He should have reintroduced say 50% subsidy which will impact on the cost of living by reducing it, while he uses the remaining 50% subsidy savings to gradually fix the refineries.

We are grappling with serious economic & security challenges. Why should Tinubu be bothered about Niger's internal affairs.
ECOWAS was set up for regional economic integration. Niger is a sovereign nation. They can impose crippling sanctions to oust the junta rather than war which will cause Islamic terrorists like ISWAP, AQIM, BH to invade our country more.
A bloodless coup shouldn't warrant an unnecessary military intervention at this stage considering the fact that over 75% of their citizens support the coup because of the way France exploits their natural resources. The citizens see the junta as nationalist & they are ready to end the West"s neo-colonialism in their country....same with Mali & B/Faso.

Tinubu shouldn't enmesh Nigerian in a NATO Vs Russia proxy war, except of course he's trying to be in their good books to see if they can validate his illegitimate regime.
