According to Buhari, unconstitutional takeovers, sometimes in reaction to unilateral changes of constitutions by some leaders, should not be tolerated by the international community.

In his speech at the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly on Friday in New York, the president warned that the democratic gains of the past decades in West Africa ‘‘are now being eroded’’ due to these negative trends.

Mr Buhari affirmed Nigeria’s support to efforts by ECOWAS, AU and the UN to address this growing challenge.
