But, the Senators urged the President to adopt political and diplomatic means to restore democratic government in Niger.According to NSF, military intervention in Niger would affect Sokoto, Kebbi, Katsina, Zamfara, Jigawa, Yobe and Borno.

“The emphasis, however, should be on political and diplomatic means to restore democratic government in Niger Republic. We also take exception to the use of military force until other avenues, as mentioned above, are exhausted, as the consequences will be casualties among the innocent citizens who do their daily business. Besides, about seven northern states with a border with the Niger Republic will be negatively affected, namely Sokoto, Kebbi, Katsina, Zamfara, Jigawa, Yobe and Borno”.
