Doumbouya issued a broadcast on state television declaring that his faction had dissolved the government and constitution.

He also said that the “National Committee of Reconciliation and Development (CNRD), [was forced] to take its responsibility” after “dire political-situation of our country, the instrumentalization of the judiciary, the non-respect of democratic principles, the extreme politicization of public administration, as well as poverty and corruption.”
