He also prompted African military institutions and countries to fete and admire the need for popular renewal.
He made the assertions on Saturday in his statement at a high– position event organised by the United Nations Development Programme( UNDP) on the perimeters of the FifthMid-Year African Union( AU) Coordination Meeting, in Nairobi, Kenya.
Tinubu, who’s also the speaker of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, said accomplishments d’état should be discouraged in the mainland, especially in the face of challenges like the COVID- 19 epidemic, instability, and climate change.
In the statement, presented on his behalf by Ambassador Adamu Ibrahim Lamuwa, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Tinubu said it was tragic that West Africa, despite its multitudinous instruments and mechanisms for promoting republic and good governance, is leading other regions in the use of unconstitutional means to change governments.
He advised that the unattractive trend of the military sinning into the political arena is causing pitfalls to peace, security, and stability, and actualizing poverty, relegation, and philanthropic heads.
statement issued by Dele Alake, Special Adviser to the President( Special Duties, Dispatches and Strategy) quoted the President as saying ” This unattractive trend has only succeeded in hanging the peace, security and stability of thesub-region and by extension the African mainland, leaving in its trail poverty, internally- displaced persons and philanthropic extremity. In the same tone, this unattractive trend has also led to food dearths and escalated health challenges.
“ We thus must take deliberate way to address the root causes of unconstitutional changes and accomplishments d’état in Africa. As a mainland, we can not make progress toward achieving the pretensions and targets of the UN Agenda 2030 for sustainable development, as well as those of the AU Agenda 2063 for the ‘ Africa We Want. ’
“ Between 2020 and now, Africa has witnessed six successful accomplishments d’état and three unprofitable attempts. This rise in military appropriations and unconstitutional changes in government disrupts our popular processes and undermines stability on the mainland.
” It’s for this reason that I call on all African leaders at all situations to make combined sweats in esteeming the tenets of republic and the rule of law, in order to insure political stability on the mainland. ”
Reiterating that Africa has no intention of regressing on its popular earnings and credentials, as well as its growing popular political culture, President Tinubu said “ I call on all Afro- centric supranational organisations, especially the African Union, the colorful Regional Economic Communities and Regional Mechanisms, to collectively and inclusively borrow Protocols on republic and good governance, and insure their effective
While admitting that republic may present challenges in terms of operation and dynamics, President Tinubu reiterated that it’s the stylish form of government for 21st- century Africa.
Drawing a comparison between military rule and popular administrations, he noted that republic ensures good governance, inclusivity, translucency, and responsibility.
Emphasising the need to disincentivize accomplishments d’état, the ECOWAS Chairperson prompted the United Nations to take a establishment station against military accomplishments.
“ It’s my view that while scuffling with the challenges caused by the socio- profitable impacts of the COVID- 19 epidemic and other geostrategic tragedies, including instability and climate change amongst others, African leaders must disincentivize accomplishments d’état.
“ The United Nations must also stand establishment and unyielding in its opposition to military accomplishments, ” he said.
He also conceded that republic and development are connected in achieving sustainable pretensions and the African vision, adding that commitment to popular principles and governance is pivotal for long– term peace, security, and profitable growth.
As speaker of the ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government, President expressed his readiness to work with the UNDP and other development mates to advance the course of republic on the African mainland.
The Nigerian leader thanked UNDP for inviting him to deliver a goodwill communication at the event and assured the association of his commitment to defying the issue of military accomplishments and promoting popular renewal in Africa.
“ The issue of Military Accomplishments and the need for popular renewal in Africa is one that I’m passionate about and indeed committed, along with my associates, to defy and we’re set to change the narratives, ” he said.
He confided the UNDP for launching its flagship report ‘ Dogfaces and Citizens Military Accomplishments and the Need for Popular Renewal in Africa ’, stating that the service has no place in the governance of the 21st Century Africa.
Jide Okeke, UNDP Regional Programme fellow( Africa), said his association invited the Nigerian leader after his inspiring communication, denouncing military accomplishments, during his induction as Chairman of ECOWAS Authority of Heads of State and Government on July 9.
He expressed delight that President Tinubu’s presence and participation in the UN high– position event demonstrates Nigeria’s commitment to popular values and stability, reasserting Nigeria’s leadership in Africa and the global community.
He described the President’s communication as transferring a positive signal to the transnational community about Nigeria’s commitment to popular values and stability.
On the UNDP flagship report, the African Regional fellow said it’s timely in advancing Nigeria’s vision of stability for West Africa and the mainland as a whole.
He explained that the report combines empirical data, literature, and particular stories from citizens who have lived through accomplishments, differing their gests with those in countries transitioning to republic.
The statement also informed that the Gambia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation, and Gambian Abroad, Dr Mamadou Tangara, Hanna Tetteh, Special Envoy of the UN Secretary- General for the Horn of Africa,Amb. Bankole Adeoye, Commissioner of Political Affairs, Peace and Security, African Union Commission, delivered their separate reflections at the event.
