Former Nigerian Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has stated that he is not surprised by the recent military coup in Gabon and believes that more coups can be expected in Francophone countries in West and Central Africa.

Fani-Kayode made these comments on his social media platform, X (formerly known as Twitter).

In his post, Fani-Kayode referred to his recent essay titled “Does Killing Nigerien Babies Bring Glory To Our Name?” where he warned about the increasing occurrence of coups in Francophone Africa due to factors like corruption, poverty, and a lack of democracy.

He expressed his lack of surprise over the coup in Gabon, stating that it was “frankly” to be expected and prophetic.”

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.

He also wondered whether the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) or the African Union would threaten to invade Gabon, as they have done in the past with other countries that have experienced coups.

He wrote, “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?”

Top army officers announced that they had seized power after the re-election of President Ali Bongo.

The officers said they were annulling the outcome of the election, which the opposition had rejected and described as “fraudulent.”

The coup in Gabon occurred on August 30, 2023, following the re-election of President Ali Bongo.

The military officers behind the coup declared that they were annulling the election outcome, which had been contested by the opposition, labelling it “fraudulent.”

This event marks the latest in a series of military takeovers in Francophone African countries.
