A few days after the military seized control, Ali Mahaman Lamine Zeine, the previous economy minister of the Niger Republic, was named the nation’s new prime minister.The National Council for the Safeguard of the Homeland’s spokesperson, Colonel Major Amadou Abdramane, made this declaration on national television on Monday night.

    In 1965, Ali Mahaman Lamine Zeine was born in Zinder, the second-most populated city in Niger. After completing his studies at the Ecole nationale d’administration (ENA) in Niamey, he started a remarkable path that led to his joining the Ministry of Economy and Finance in 1991. Graduates from the Centre d’études financières, économiques et bancaires in Marseille and Paris-I are another one of his academic accomplishments.Zeine continued to advance in the government when, in 2001, President Mamadou Tandja named him Chief of Staff. In 2003, he was appointed Minister of Economy and Finance due to his abilities and commitment, and he has since worked relentlessly to guide the country toward economic stability.

    The period that followed General and President Ibrahim Baré Ma’nassara’s murder in 1999, which led to a string of military coups, is where this economic unrest has its roots.Zeine’s accomplishments went beyond that of a Finance Minister. He demonstrated his dedication to regional economic cooperation and development by serving as the African Development Bank’s (AfDB) resident representative in Chad, Côte d’Ivoire, and Gabon.On February 18, 2010, a military coup forced out Mamadou Tandja, which marked a turning point in Zeine’s administration.
