Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode has said he is not surprised about the military coup in Gabon.

Fani-Kayode’s statement was due to the coup in the Central African country.

Purpleworld had earlier reported that Gabon soliders seize power, cancel election result after the third term re-election of President Ali Bongo on Saturday.

The top army officers made the announcement on Tuesday.
The officers reportedly said Saturday’s election were invalid which the opposition had rejected and described as “fraudulent”.

However, Fani-Kayode in a post via his social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, stated that people should expect more coups in the Francophone countries of West and Central Africa.

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.
“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?”
