Peoples Redemption Party opposes Relocation of US-France Military Bases to Nigeria

The Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, has opposed the relocation of United States and French military bases, warning Nigerian authorities not to compromise its sovereignty and security.

PRP’s stance was disclosed on Monday in a statement issued by its Acting National Publicity Secretary, Comrade Muhammed Ishaq, who advised the Nigerian government against entering into any agreements that would lead to establishing foreign military bases on Nigerian soil.

The statement, which partially reads, argued that the relocation could strain relations with other African countries, leading to diplomatic tensions and regional instability.

Foreign military bases on Nigerian soil may gradually erode our national sovereignty, the statement reads.

The party, PRP, further added that such a move might be perceived as an act of aggression or a power play, leading to diplomatic tensions and regional instability.

We call on the Nigerian government to outrightly reject such proposals for our national interest, the party said.

Also, it emphasised the need for Nigeria to prioritise its internal security needs and strengthen its defence capabilities rather than rely on foreign powers.

However, since the report of the prominent Northern leaders, who alleged that the Nigerian authorities are under pressure from the U.S. and France, President Bola Tinubu, also Head of ECOWAS, has yet to issue a statement addressing the allegation.

Essentially, the Nigerian authorities neither confirm nor deny the allegation, but Nigerians, many of whom fear their sovereignty being threatened via social media, engaged in a heated debate while showcasing their stance in the negative.
