Opposition parties in Chad warn France not to interfere. Can you imagine! How can citizens of a nation have the effrontery to warn their former colonizers? That is the situation in Chad. The opposition parties do not warn France to meddle in the affairs of the country. this looks confrontational. What exactly are they up to and what will they do if France comes in? I see here that they are standing on the strength of sovereignty to say that. The political opposition in Chad is reacting to the newly formed Chadian transitional military council’s declaration of General Mahamat Deby Itno as president of the republic following the death of his father.

According to Mahamat Bichara, a spokesman for the main opposition parties:
We, the opposition political parties, call on the Chadian people not to obey the Transitional Military Council’s (TMC) illegal, illegitimate, and irregular decisions, such as the transitional charter, curfews, and border closures, and to remain vigilant against any form of seizure of power or its confiscation by force.”
The parties have also addressed France’s calls for a democratic transition, as the former colonizer seeks to maintain its relationship with Chad under the now-deceased Deby.

Mahamat Bichara went on to say:
“We caution French authorities, including French President Emmanuel Macron, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, and French army generals, not to meddle in Chad’s internal affairs.”
Chad may be on the verge of a political crisis as political tensions rise, potentially leaving the Sahel region vulnerable to the ongoing jihadist insurgency, despite the fact that the country’s army has been a notable anti-terrorist force.
