We Condemn the Coup d’etat in Niger
We are greatly disturbed by political instability in Niger where a coup d’etat took place on Wednesday 24th July 2023. We affirm that God hates violence and acts like such undermine the efforts invested towards the realization of Aspiration 3 (An Africa of good governance, democracy, respect for human rights, justice and the rule of law), and Aspiration 4 (A peaceful and secure Africa) of the Agenda 2063: The Africa we want. We commend ECOWAS and the African Union for condemning this act of violence on time but also call upon the two institutions to be alert to bad governance, the prevailing injustices, and human rights violations in the Western Africa region. The All Africa conference of churches is committed to continue accompanying the churches and all people of Niger and the entire western Africa region in their pursuit for justice and peace.
