Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has warned that there would be more coups in Francophone countries.
Fani-Kayode was reacting to the military takeover in Gabon.
Army officers on Tuesday, announced seizure of power after President Ali Bongo’s third term re-election on Saturday.
The officers reportedly said they were annulling the outcome of Saturday’s election which the opposition had rejected and described as “fraudulent”.
Fani-Kayode tweeted, “Sadly another coup has taken place in Africa. This time it is in the nation of Gabon where President Ali Bongo (pictured below) has been removed from power.
“It appears that the warning I gave in my last essay, titled ‘Does Killing Nigerien Babies Bring Glory To Our Name?’, was prophetic.
“I am not surprised that this has happened and frankly we should expect more coups in the Francophone countries of West and Central Africa for the reasons I stated in that essay.
“I wonder whether ECOWAS or the African Union will threaten to invade Gabon too?”
