During his participation at the UN General Assembly, President Tinubu addressed other world leaders as he sued for peace and condemned the growing pattern of military coups in the continent.
“We must affirm democratic governance as the best guarantor of the sovereign will and well-being of the people. Military coups are wrong, as is any tilted civilian political arrangement that perpetuates injustice.”
