The former president of Niger, Mahamadou Issoufou has warned of dire consequences that befell the Sahel, a region plagued by acute insurgency.

Issoufou further said that the war in the Sahel has been neglected by the world and instead more attention given to Ukraine terming it a double standard.

“It shocks Africans to see billions of dollars raining down on Ukraine while eyes are diverted from the situation in the Sahel.

When we set up – to illustrate what I just said – the G5 Sahel and its joint force; to make the G5 Sahel joint force operational, we needed 400 million dollars, but we never got it.
