Issoufou was previously the Prime Minister of Niger from 1993 April 17 to 1994 September 28, when he resigned. He ran for President in 1996, placing fourth, and again in 1999 and 2004, both times placing second to Mamdou Tandja. As Tandja's second term was coming to an end, a constitutional amendment allowing the president to serve more than 2 terms was proposed, and passed in a heavily boycotted national referendum. This led to a military coup d'état on 2010 February 18, where Mamadou Tandja was deposed. Leadership of the country was turned over to Salou Djibo, Chairman of the Supreme Council for the Restoration of Democracy of Niger. Issoufou would finally become President after winning the elections held in 2011.

What pyramids are in Niger?

YES INDEED THE PYRAMIDS ARE IN ZINDER IN NIGER NOT NIGERIA FOR MORE INFO CONTACT ME ASAP. ZINDER-NIGER: Détails sur la découverte d'une pyramide… . Vendredi, 09 Mars 2012 00:00 direct niger . Le 29 février 2012, le chercheur nigérien en égyptologie, Maître Souley Garba, a fait part de la découverte qu'il a faite d'une pyramide dans le village de Dan Baki, à 20 km de la ville de Zinder. Selon les explications de ce chercheur, il y a même un sphinx juste en face de cette pyramide, (le sphinx est une espèce de statue de grand lion couché). Ainsi, la pyramide et le sphinx sont en connexion, a-t-il expliqué. En effet, la pyramide découverte contiendrait plus de 40.000 objets en or. Ce qui signifie des tonnes d'or, une richesse astronomique inestimable pour le Niger et le Monde entier. Cette pyramide est l'une des toutes premières de l'humanité, selon les textes anciens et elle est en état de dégradation avancée, a précisé Maître Souley Garba avant de faire remarquer qu'il y a une autre pyramide jumelle à coté de celle qu'il vient de découvrir. Mieux, il précise qu'il y a toute une ligne de pyramides qui sont situées dans la région de Tanout (Zinder). Il faut souligner que l'égyptologue nigérien, Maître Souley Garba, a fait deux importantes découvertes fondamentales: Il y a d'abord la découverte de la véritable langue des anciens Egyptiens. Selon lui, les anciens égyptiens parlaient le Haousa, une des principales langues commerciales d'Afrique de l'Ouest au 41ème rang mondial et parlée par environ 50 millions de personnes au Nigeria, Cameroun, Niger, Ghana, Soudan, Bénin, Burkina Faso et au Togo. Mieux, il précise également que les hiéroglyphes étaient écrits en Haousa. C'est donc grâce à cette langue qu'il a pu déchiffrer et décrypter, après plusieurs années de recherche, l'origine ou le point de départ des anciens Egyptiens. Maître Souley GARBA explique que les anciens égyptiens déclarent qu'ils sont apparus ici à DARGAZA (Zinder) qui signifient la couronne de Dieu c'est-à-dire le Dieu Solaire, à l'époque du taureau. Et leur territoire s'étant de DARGAZA jusqu'à la mer rouge en passant par l'Egypte actuelle et le Yémen. Il vient ainsi de trouver la clef même de la lecture des hiéroglyphes. La deuxième découverte est celle de la pyramide à degrés, jamais ouverte et un sphinx au Niger pour démontrer et confirmer tous ses postulats et thèses en face du monde. C'est donc la lecture de ses écritures très anciennes qui l'a guidé, l'a orienté lentement mais sûrement sur le chemin des anciens Egyptiens jusqu'au sommet de cette pyramide de Dan Baki (à 20 km de la ville de Zinder) dont il vient de faire la découverte. A l'occasion de cette découverte, Maître Souley GARBA repose la question de la civilisation humaine avec beaucoup de simplicité et d'humilité. Qui étaient-ils vraiment? Que reste-il d'eux? Quel est le sens de la véritable civilisation humaine? Réponse: lire dans les hiéroglyphes! Visiblement c'est l'Histoire à l'envers pour le trop cartésien mais selon une loi simple de l'évolution "les premiers seront les derniers et les derniers seront les premiers", la vie est donc un cycle d'éternel recommencement. La carte de la République du Niger représente l'image de la tête de taureau. Alors selon la lecture des hiéroglyphes de Maître Souley GARBA, le point de départ de l'humanité c'est le Niger, à DARGAZA précisément ! Lire ci-dessous, l'interview du chercheur en égyptologie, Maître Souley Garba , accordée au journal nigérien Patriote 15 . Mocatar Gazoby. De quoi s'agit-il exactement? Maître Souley GARBA: Nous venons de faire la découverte d'une pyramide dans la région de Zinder particulièrement dans le village de Tambari près de TIMINI. C'est à 20 km à l'ouest de Zinder. C'est dans cette région que nous avons découvert une pyramide à degrés et un sphinx. Le sphinx c'est une sorte de grande statuette ou si vous voulez de grande statue de lion couché. Donc nous avons le sphinx qui regarde la pyramide à degrés. La pyramide à degrés ce sont ces genres de pyramides qui ont des sortes d'escaliers circulaires, juste vers le haut, le sommet. Donc c'est cette découverte que nous venons de faire. LE PATRIOTE15: Toutes nos félicitations, maître. Maître Souley GARBA: C'est le résultat de nos activités que nous menons depuis quand même 7années. Et avec un institut privé des Etats-Unis d'Amérique pour pouvoir comprendre davantage la civilisation Egyptienne qui n'est pas seulement celle de l'Egypte actuelle qu'on connaît mais qui s'étant également vers le Niger. LE PATRIOTE15: Mais maître Souley ; qu'est-ce qui vous a guidé jusqu'à cette découverte? Maître Souley GARBA: Donc en fait si vous voulez l'origine ou la cause principale qui nous a guidés vers cette découverte, c'est une étude que nous avions mené depuis des années et notamment pendant 7 années en nous basant sur des anciens textes hiéroglyphiques. L'étude des hiéroglyphes nous a permis de comprendre que la langue des Egyptiens anciens était le Hawsa. Ce texte hiéroglyphique nous a guidés et nous avons compris qu'il y a des pyramides dans la région de Zinder. Maintenant, certainement cela se confirme de manière très claire. Grâce donc aux hiéroglyphes nous avons pu accéder au nom du village. C'est le village de Dan Baki, un village qui se situe à environ 2 km au nord du village de Tirmini. Nous avons travaillé sur un ancien texte hiéroglyphique qui parle essentiellement du Niger. Selon ce texte, l'Egypte actuelle n'est qu'un prolongement, une excroissance de la république du Niger. Dans le passé très lointain, c'est-à-dire dans les temps anciens, le Niger gouvernait le Tchad, le Soudan, l'Egypte, l'Arabie Saoudite et jusqu'au Yémen selon les enseignements des anciens textes Egyptiens. Ce texte là nous a révélé non seulement de comprendre l'histoire de l'humanité qu'one ne connaît pas ou qu'on a délibérément occulté mais explique également qu'il n'y a pas de pyramides seulement qu'en Egypte. Il y a bel et bien des pyramides au Niger. LE PATRIOTE15: Que dire des pyramides que l'on trouve au Niger en termes d'ancienneté? La pyramide dont vous avez la découverte à Zinder est-elle plus ancienne ou plus récente que celles qu'il y a en Egypte? Maître Souley GARBA: très bien! La pyramide que nous retrouvée dans la région de Tirmini en effet est beaucoup plus ancienne que celles de l'Egypte actuelle. Car celle-là est déjà en dégradation avancée Mais elle n'a pas été ouverte. Et toutes celles qui s'y trouvent dans les environs conserveraient leur immense trésor. Si l'Etat nous accorde la fouille archéologique de cette pyramide, nous pourrions trouver plus de 40.000 objets en Or. A quelques distances de cette pyramide il y a sa jumelle dans les champs des habitants. LE PATRIOTE15: Maître, dites nous alors qu'il y aurait un champ de pyramides dans cette région du Niger! Maître Souley GARBA: Oui en effet. Il y a, toute une ligne de pyramides de la ville de Zinder jusqu'à Tanout. Donc, il n'a que des pyramides là-bas. LE PATRIOTE15: Maître d'où venaient les Egyptiens finalement? Ils avaient migré de Tanout vers Zinder ou de Zinder vers Tanout pour remonter vers l'Egypte? Maître Souley GARBA: Justement selon les anciens textes hiéroglyphiques, les Egyptiens sont nés ou sont apparus à Tanout et notamment à DARGAZA et ont migré vers l'Egypte actuelle jusqu'au Yémen et donc jusqu'à la mer rouge. Dans les textes hiéroglyphiques, ils parlent leur terre ou leur territoire comme s'étendant de Tanout jusqu'à la mer rouge. C'est pourquoi il y a des pyramides depuis Tanout jusqu'au bord du Nil. Toute cette ligne forme une barque terrestre parsemée de pyramides. LE PATRIOTE15: Est-ce qu'il y a le nom de Tanout dans le texte hiéroglyphique? Maître Souley GARBA: Le nom de Tanout s'y trouve et surtout le nom de DARGAZA revient constamment dans les textes hiéroglyphiques comme origine des anciens Egyptiens. DARGAZA signifie la couronne de Dieu qu'ils appelaient le Dieu solaire! Et si vous voulez les pyramides de la région de Caire portent le nom de Guésah ou Giseh. Il un rapport entre Giseh et DARGAZA. C'est le même radical. LE PATRIOTE15: Quelle a été la réaction des autorités nigériennes au moment de cette découverte? Maître Souley GARBA: Le préfet de Miriah M. Alatmo Gaskiya a réagi très favorablement. C'est lui-même qui a informé et mobilisé le maire Tirmini a allé voir le site. La population est accourue vers le site. Les médias internationaux et nationaux sont venus. Nous remercions les autorités nigériennes pour leur prompte réaction ainsi que la population et les différents corps de métiers qui sont venus voir le site (les avocats, les journalistes, enseignants etc.). LE PATRIOTE15: je vous remercie maître Souley GARBA et toutes nos félicitations. Maître Souley GARBA: C'est moi qui vous remercie. Merci à tous vos lecteurs.

Is the word Niger a bad word?

To the nature of words: . First, there is no such thing as a "bad word." Words are inanimate and incapable of causing harm of themselves. How words are used is another matter. In the context of this question, it is clear the asker is inquiring after a simialr word that is commonly used in a derogatory way. I'll get to that in a moment. As the question is asked, no. Niger is the name of a country in central Africa. The name of anything cannot be "bad" and it would be exceedingly difficult to use it in a bad way. It is an identifier, a label in the informational sense. The only way the name of the country Niger could perhaps be used in a bad way is if it were used to refer to another country, as in say if someone were referring to France as Niger. It is obviously incorrect and therefore a bad usage, geographically and grammatically. On to the asker's intent. The following is an objective treatment of a piece of language and history. No intent or bias is intended on the part of the answerer. The double "G" word the asker may be referring tohere has acquired negative connotations, but not universally. One can see on the streets, neighborhoods, schools, and pretty much anywhere one can find a concentration of African-Americans young people who use the bouble "G" word as a means to peer bond. It is often tossed about with abandon and little attention is paid to any negative connotation. Where difficulty rises is when any other ethnotype uses the word. If, say, a Caucasian where to use the double "G" word in any context, even in the situation previously mentioned of peer bonding, the likely outcome would be a violent reaction on the part of African-Americans who heard it. This all being said, the double "G" word comes down as a shortening of the term Negroid, a word that was originally used as a label of ethnicity or race in the traditional sense. The earliest attempts to identify race of humans spoke only of three ethnotypes: Oriental, Caucasoid, and Negroid. This has since been expanded and is much more complex than originally considered. No negative intent was assigned to any of the three words. The use of the double "G" word rises out of the southern US before and after the Civil War. It was used sometimes to denote a person of low standing, generally applied to slaves, former slaves (post war), and anyone with darker than typical Caucasian skin coloring. Contrary to popular belief, those who used to the word, especially into the later 19th and early 20th century, did so more out of habit than from any presumed higher moral worth or standing. For most intents and purposes, it was a label, a way to identify an unspecified other who could be grouped with a specific ethnotype, not meant to be any more derogatory than "whites" for northern European ethnotypes, or "Asians" for those of Oriental descent. Over time, as with any word or phrase in any language, it took on a meaning of it's own. With segregation in the South, and defacto segragation in the North, ir became a word that was associated with hate. It is in fact listed as hate language in many hate crime legislation. Yet, it is still used by youths to peer bond. Language is a funny thing, and most people do not even consider the source of the language they use. Many people misuse language on a regular basis, and many jokes are made about that misuse. Consider for a moment that most of the epithets that we use, the swear or curse words, are actually abbreviations or acronyms from another time. Language is a fluid, living thing. It changes with time. But, it remains inanimate and benign. It takes a speaker who is engaging hateful oppinions to breathe life into them, to turn them into weapons before any harm can rise out of the speaking. And, it is not the word that harms, rather the attitudes and beliefs of the speaker. Consider for a moment the fragment, "fruit snack." Everyone loves fruit of one form or another. Entire corporations have been founded on the attempt to develop more flavorful and nutricious fruit snack products. It is an inoccuous and harmless term. However, if a child who was angry with another child applied the term, the label, to that other child, "You fruit snack!", this benign term becomes the vehicle of a weapon. It isn't the weapon itself, it only serves to convey the hate and anger, to transport it. The double "G" word does the same. It is a collection of characters that when expressed as sounds acts as a vehicle for the meaning of the person expressing it. The problem is, as with any expression in language, the meaning that is intended is not always the meaning that is received. Those listening sift everything they hear through their own filters, and in doing so blame the words rather than their own preconceived impressions and notions. The short of it is, a word cannot be intrinsically bad or good. It can only be. The use or purpose to which it is applied, and more specifically the intent with which it is applied CAN be bad or good..
