The Federal Government of Nigeria is faulting the inauguration of Gabonese General Brice Oligui Nguema as the country’s interim President.
In a statement, the spokesperson for Nigeria’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Francisca Omayuli, demanded an immediate return to democracy in Gabon.
Nguema had on August 30, 2023, led a coup ending 55 years of rule by the Bongo dynasty.
The coup leader was subsequently sworn in yesterday, Monday 4th September, as interim President.
Nguema, who has pledged to hold elections after a still-unspecified transition period swear by God and the Gabonese people to faithfully preserve the Republican regime.
