Niger after the Coup

Niger after the Coup

Now that the exit offered by the ECOWAS the coup leaders in Niger has expired, what are now the possible outcome of this situation whose consequences spreads well over their borders.
• Will ECOWAS follow through with their military threats?
• If they do will the joint forces of Mali and Burkina really support them?
The answer to all the above are no. The ECOWAS cannot really afford to attack Niger, mainly because they will never get the support they need within Africa to do so.
And if they happen to do it against all odds, the suffering this will cause to the people of Niger will be more than any consequences of this coup.
Meaning it will not be worth it.
All the option that can lead to reinstating Mohamed Bazoum as President of Niger are with their Military. Either the coup leaders finally accept the demands of the ECOWAS and finaly reinstate him, or there is another coup by other military which leads to reinstating him.
Outside interference will do more harm than good.
