President Bola Tinubu a short while ago engaged in a telephone conversation with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to discuss the evolving situation in Africa. The conversation focused on potential strategies to address the ongoing coup in Gabon, where military forces took control following controversial election results.

In a related development, Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to President Tinubu on Media and Publicity, highlighted the president’s commitment to upholding democratic principles and the rule of law across the African continent. During a press conference at the State House in Abuja, Ngelale emphasized that Tinubu’s priority was to prevent the erosion of constitutional governance in Africa.

Ngelale explained that President Tinubu expressed his concerns about the rise of autocratic regimes in Africa and the need for leaders to uphold democratic values.
