“They are peaceful population, it is most unfortunate, we need to make more efforts and pay attention to the various signs, indicates a precarious future for our children and family, it would not be right to remain adamant of this issue”.

He wished for Niger to have its peace and stability, and predicted difficult times ahead unless the sub-region muster courage and say to those who are not peace loving people, and pointed to the Western powers who had lost confidence in themselves and are working to ensure that the world is in disorder.
