Gabon Coup: Contagious Autocracy Spreading In Africa – Tinubu

Following Wednesday’s coup in Gabon, Nigerian President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu has expressed concern that a contagion of autocracy is spreading across Africa.

He said he is working very closely with other Heads of State in the African Union towards a comprehensive consensus response after the coup in Gabon.

Tinubu’s spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, told reporters in Abuja yesterday that the president was watching closely with deep concern for Gabon’s socio-political stability and the autocratic contagion spreading across different regions of Africa.

He said Tinubu said the rule of law and a faithful recourse to the constitutional resolutions and instruments of electoral dispute resolution must not be allowed to perish from the continent.
