Anti-budget protest march planned in Niamey February 11; expect a heightened security presence and traffic disruptions

09 févr. 19h54 UTC
TIMEFRAME expected from 26/1/2018, 12h00 until 28/1/2018, 11h59 (Africa/Niamey). COUNTRY/REGION Niamey


Several civil society organizations are planning to hold a protest march against the 2018 Finance Act in Niamey on Sunday, February 11. Participants reportedly plan to gather at Place Tuomo and march to Place de la Concertation outside the National Assembly building; the precise route of the march is currently unknown but will likely follow the route of past related protest marches. Heightened security measures and associated traffic disruptions are expected along and near the protest and march route.


Similar protests took place in Niamey and other Nigerien cities on January 14 and January 28. The 2018 Finance Act stipulates the implementation of inheritance and land taxes, and raises taxes on goods and services.

Niger frequently experiences violent demonstrations. Both large and small protests occur regularly, often near government buildings, university campuses, or public parks. Many demonstrations have involved rock throwing and tire burning, especially at key intersections in Niamey.


Individuals in Niamey are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests due to the risk of violence, and adhere to any instructions issued by the local authorities.

In general, individuals throughout Niger should exercise vigilance when visiting sites deemed particularly likely to be targeted by an attack (government buildings, prominent hotels, etc.) and report any suspicious objects or behavior to the authorities. Many Western governments advise their citizens against all travel to areas located in the north and west of the country, as well as areas along the Nigerian border to the south, due to the high risk of terrorist activity.​
