The Economic Community of West African States ECOWAS has rejected Niger junta’s three-year power transition plan.

The head of the military junta in Niger Republic, Gen.Abdourahamane Tchiani, on Saturday, said he would relinquish power within three years and warned that any intervention by foreign forces would not be a walk in the park.

His warning followed the arrival of an ECOWAS delegation in the country for a final diplomatic push before deciding on military intervention against the junta.
