It was earlier reported that the military in Gabon on Monday attempted to seize power from the President Ali Bongo-led government in the country.

Soldiers in the West African country said they launched a coup to restore democracy.

President Bongo, who took over power in 2009, reportedly suffered a stroke in October and was receiving treatment in Morocco.

Reacting to the coup, Jonathan, in a message on his Facebook page, called on military authorities to restore peace and democracy in Gabon.

The message read: “I stand with the African Union in condemning the attempted coup in Gabon. While urging for calm, restraint and peaceful conduct, I also call on the military authorities to return the country to its status as a constitutional democracy.

“African countries may be facing different challenges, capable of visiting untold hardships on the people. However, the creativity required in resolving those challenges can only be located in the democratic space.

“As there’s no other alternative governance style that could deliver public good to a greater majority of the people. There’s no doubt that the socio-economic interest of continental Africa is better served under a stable atmosphere, which constitutional democracy guarantees.”
