Activist, Mahdi Shehu, has warned President Tinubu against going to war with the coupists in Niger Republic. CONTINUE READING>>>>>

If the civilian Presidents don’t like coup, they should be democratic, responsible and answerable. Short of that, coup will always be an option to people who are aggrieved”
Speaking further, he said;
‘’If Tinubu decides to go and invade Niger along with ECOWAS, he will lose more than ECOWAS because definitely, we going to the polls anytime, any day soon, we will go back to the polls and that is when Nigerians will realise that they have been called upon in the past, be wary, be careful, beware of a Tinubu presidency.
