Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has said that more coup should be expected in Africa, particularly in the French-speaking countries of West Africa and Central Africa.
While reacting to the coup in Gabon, FFK said he is not surprised about the military coup in the country as he was already aware more of those coups would happen..
Following the declaration of the incumbent president as the winner of the last election in Gabon and with the protest by the opposition, the mility on Tuesday announced the takeover of the government.
However, Fani-Kayode in a post via his social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, stated that people should expect more coups in the Francophone countries of West and Central Africa.
He wrote, “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?”
