Coup: Ghana's Trade Union Kicks Against Sending Troops To Niger

Coup: Ghana's Trade Union Kicks Against Sending Troops To Ni

Ghana Trade Union Congress

The largest trade union in Ghana has advised against military action in Niger Republic.

The Trades Union Congress (TUC) said that if ECOWAS leaders engage the military junta in "good faith," constitutional order in Niger might be restored through diplomacy.

"We are convinced that any attempt by force to depose the Tchiani-led military junta in Niger will exacerbate tensions and insecurity in the region," TUC Secretary General Yaw Baah said in a statement.

ECOWAS, the West African regional organisation, has threatened military action against the military junta that deposed President Mohamed Bazoum last month.

ECOWAS rejected the junta's proposal for a three-year transition to civilian governance.

Niger has also been sanctioned by the regional bloc.

Traders in Ghana claim they are now having difficulty importing commodities like onions from Niger, and prices have risen.

Niger accounts for over 70% of Ghana's onion imports. Niger exported over $23 million (£18 million) in onions to Ghana and other West African nations in 2021.
