Examining the stance of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) in the ongoing struggle of Nigeriens for liberation reveals that it is but a willing tool of neo-colonialism. According to Ibrahim Traore, the Burkina Faso Junta Leader, "A slave that does not rebel does not deserve pity." Nigeriens so named by those who shared Africa in 1884 have for long been slaves in their land. One would expect every well-meaning African to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with them in their quest for liberation from French hegemony. 

However, ECOWAS, an organization supposedly formed for the good of West Africans has instead opted to align with the enemy. It is on record that ECOWAS is planning a classic colonial-style military intervention in Niger. The aim is to overturn the will of the people and install a thoroughly indoctrinated French colonial puppet. 

Africans must collectively resist this move by ECOWAS using any means necessary. ECOWAS, the regional organization in West Africa, has leaders whose ascensions to power are viewed with suspicion by the majority. Additionally, the overwhelming majority of West Africans oppose ECOWAS using their respective militaries against Niger to advance neo-colonial agendas. ECOWAS must understand that military coups are sometimes preferable to coups orchestrated through elections.

Many African countries are witnessing election-based coups, and yet ECOWAS remains silent. Rigging elections is akin to a coup d'état. Consider the situations in Zimbabwe, Nigeria, etc. Is the current ECOWAS chairman innocent of the democratic coup d'etat? ECOWAS appears to be a consortium of self-serving despots and dictators who view themselves as Africa's leaders. They act as agents for the West against their own nations, looting national treasuries to enrich themselves while oppressing their citizens. 

Africans should recognize that ECOWAS was established by the Western world with an agenda to subjugate them. ECOWAS leaders are puppets of the West, caring more for their interests than the well-being of Africa and its people. ECOWAS and the AU should serve the people of West Africa and the African continent, not foreign or neo-colonial interests. If most Africans support military coups over their civilian governments, it suggests a lack of true democracy in their nations.

ECOWAS should question its alignment with Western instructions to invade peaceful regions. Why would they send the military to a place where there is no war? Should ECOWAS militarily invade Niger under the pretence of reinstating "democracy", I believe it will be a declaration of war on Africans. The time for change is now.
