Niger's President


Amidst the harsh living conditions that Niger President Mohamed Bazoum and his family are facing following their ousting by a military coup, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has expressed his "concern" regarding their well-being.

 

The reports revealing the current condition of President Bazoum of Niger and his family, sent a shockwave to the entire world as it clearly showed a lack of access to even basic amenities such as electricity, water, food, and medical supplies.

 

The spokesperson's statement, released on Wednesday, reads, "The Secretary-General is very concerned over the deplorable living conditions that President Bazoum and his family are reported to be living under as they continue to be arbitrarily detained by members of the Presidential Guard in Niger."

President Mohamed Bazoum was elected as the President in the year 2021, marking Niger's first-ever democratic transition of power. However, the political scenario in Niger has taken a tumultuous turn in the past month as President Bazoum was removed from office in a coup.

 

This military intervention, which met with widespread international criticism, led to Abdourahamane Tiani, the commander of Niger's presidential guard, declaring himself as the new leader of the nation. Ever since then President Bazoum and his family have been forced to live in distressing conditions.
