UN chief Rejects The Coup d’éta Carried Out In Guinea – GCFRNG.
UN Secretary-General António Guterres
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Sunday condemned the coup in Guinea and demanded the immediate release of President Alpha Condé.
According to reports, the future of Guinea’s president, Condé, is unclear when an unedited video showing troops surrounding him says they have seized power.
They appeared on national TV claiming to have broken the government.
However, the defense ministry said that efforts by the authorities were aimed at capturing it.
The bomber struck shortly after noon in front of the presidential palace in Conakry.
Guterres, on his twitter @antonioguterres criticized the development.
“I was closely monitoring the situation in Guinea.
“I condemn any coup d’état and call for the immediate removal of President Alpha Conde,” said Guterres, a UN spokesman for the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).
Similarly, the African Union and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) have condemned the outbreak and called for the immediate release of President Condé.
In a statement on Sunday, ECOWAS described the practice as a clear violation of the ECOWAS Protocol on Democracy and Good Governance, calling for an immediate resumption of the process.
Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo, who is also the chairperson of the ECOWAS Council of Heads of State and Government, said ECOWAS had requested the immediate release of President Alpha Condé and no arrests.
“ECOWAS reiterates that it does not accept any political change.
Akufo-Addo said, “He urges security forces to stay with the Republicans and show his support for the Guineans in government.”
