MY FEAR IS THAT WHAT HAPPENED IN NIGER ( COUP )SHOULD NOT HAPPEN IN NIGERIA BECAUSE OF POWER GREED

Lightly armed soldiers carried out a small number of patrols in Niger's capital on Friday, and markets, banks and schools opened as usual, a day after troops ousted President Mamadou
Tandja in a military coup. 

The head of the military junta that seized Tandja during Thursday's gun battle called for calm and closed the uranium-producer's borders. The
work of government ministers and regional governors ousted in the coup
was being done by their secretary generals.

After months of political wrangling over Tandja's amending the constitution to extend his rule, which drew international sanctions and sparked
demonstrations, there was a sense of relief and hope for change in the
desert nation.

"Right now, I think we will be able to work normally without all the pressure from the street (demonstrations) and the private radio stations the politicians occupied," said Adiza
Abdoulaye, a teacher in the west of the dusty capital.
