Niger republic has ban flights taking off or going to Nigeria from using her airspace .

This restriction takes effect from 6th of February 2024.

See circular below

Niger Republic has restated its prohibition of flights from Nigeria.

In a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) issued by the country’s airspace management authority, it reiterated that flights from Nigeria would not be allowed to land in Niger.

However, it clarified that this restriction does not apply to commercial flights passing over Nigerien airspace without making a landing.

The NOTAM stated that the country’s airspace is opened to all national and international commercial flights from ground to unlimited except for Nigerian flights to or from Nigeria.”

This restriction doesn’t affect commercial flights that fly over Nigerien airspace without landing there. However, it is recalled that ADB-B (Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast) or Radar transponders (for surveillance and communication) must remain on for any flight taking place in the Niger Republic airspace,”

“On the other hand, the Niger Republic Airspace remains closed for all military, operational and other special flights. These military or special flights are only permitted subject to prior authorization from the competent authorities. This circular, which only concerns Niger and Nigeria does not repeal no NOTAM in force
,
” the circular stated.

According to the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA), the restriction included the directive that no commercial flight from Niger should overfly Nigerian airspace and no flight from any Nigerian state should overfly Niger’s airspace.

Nigeria had previously announced the reinstatement of its ban on flights to and from Niger through a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM). The statement indicated that this measure was implemented in alignment with the ECOWAS resolution.

Mali, Burkina Faso, and Niger recently announced their withdrawal from the Economic Community Of West African States (ECOWAS). This is following their decision in December 2023 to form their own confederation.

You will come back to beg, these are all Fulani and Buhari handwork to frustrate nigerian government. The coup in niger included.

Buhari Stole Nigerian money dump it in Niger, that’s what they think they can use to build their country. Tinubu should find tap and lock them all and let their reserve run out.

Identify the bandits and kill them

When you are a puppet to the slave master another slave is trying to free herself from, this is what you get.

You're seen as a traitor and a betrayal.

What do we do to betrayers? We show no mercy.

You watch Django to see what betrayals like Nigeria get.

Nigerian leadership is feverish. They will soon cool down when reality hits them hard. Niger to North Korea is quite some distance!

Everybody knows, but you are better-of respecting their sovereignty than intruding, the outcome might not be palatable.

Tinubu would have just stayed quiet after the Niger coup, instead of issuing threats that are immaterial. Tinubu is now seen as a weak coward...The most shameful of all is that ECOWAS is still begging Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso to return back as ECOWAS members.
