ECOWAS: Nigeria lost African brothers because of Western friends – Shehu Sani

Former lawmaker and social critic, Senator Shehu Sani, on Sunday, said that Nigeria lost its African blood brothers because of Western conditional friends.

The statement followed the report that military regimes in Burkina Faso, Mali and Niger have withdrawn their membership from the Economic Community of West African States, ECOWAS.

Sani stated that their withdrawal from ECOWAS was a serious setback for West Africa.

It has been reported that the leaders of the three Sahel nations disclosed this in a joint statement on Sunday.

Recall that all three were suspended from ECOWAS, with Niger and Mali facing heavy sanctions.

According to the military juntas, it was a “sovereign decision” to leave the Economic Community of West African States “without delay”.

However, the former lawmaker stated that the development signified the failure of diplomacy and dialogue.

“The Withdrawal of Mali, Niger Republic and Burkina Faso from Ecowas is a serious setback for West Africa.

It signifies the failure of diplomacy and dialogue. We lost our African blood brothers because of our Western conditional friends.

We sacrificed our hands to keep our wristwatches,” Sani wrote on his X handle.
