Kebba Tumanding Sanneh, the national assembly member for Foni Jarrol, has rejected any attempt by Ecowas including the Gambia government to send troops to Niger to restore democracy.
However, he condemned the military coup in Niger.
Speaking exclusively to GTTV, the lawmaker advised diplomatic talks in addressing the debacle in Niger rather than using military force.
“I am not in support of sending troops to Niger,” he said, adding that he was disappointed when he heard that The Gambia wants to also take part in this move by sending troops to Niger when the country has so many problems to solve.
“They talk about security reforms but it does not happen now who are they sending to Niger,” he said referring to the Gambia government.
According to him, our economy can never grow because the economy has to grow based on investment, and that investment must have securities.
“Niger’s problem is Niger’s problem although it is an African problem, but we request an African solution. What Africans are used to is dialogue and they cannot start a fight. ECOWAS is not talking about what is happening, the cause of change of government through a barrel of gun,” he added.
