Sanusi made this commitment on Wednesday, shortly after his visit to Niamey, the capital of Niger, where he met with coup leader Abdourahamane Tiani.

He clarified that while government officials were aware of his visit to the coup leaders, the purpose of the visit was a personal one.

After the meeting, he informed President Bola Tinubu about the discussions, emphasizing the need for a diplomatic approach to the matter.

Sanusi remarked, “Ongoing efforts are in place, and we will continue striving to mediate between the two parties to enhance mutual understanding.”

He stressed the importance of public diplomacy in this situation, stating that the responsibility doesn’t solely rest on governments. He highlighted that all individuals from Nigeria and Niger should engage in finding a solution beneficial for Africa, Niger, Nigeria, and humanity.

“I embarked on this journey independently, without government involvement. While government officials were informed of my plans, I utilized my personal connections to facilitate the visit. I remain committed to making positive contributions. As a leader, it is my duty,” Sanusi affirmed.

Sanusi’s visit followed Niger’s military authorities rejecting a joint peace initiative from the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), the African Union (AU), and the United Nations (UN). The diplomatic endeavors were halted after late-night communication from Niger’s military authorities conveyed their inability to receive the delegation.
