The Northern Senators Forum (NSF) extends its appreciation to the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) for lifting sanctions on Niger Republic following the military takeover on July 26, 2023. The decision, announced after closed-door talks, signifies ECOWAS’ commitment to regional solidarity and respect for human rights.
