Seyni Oumarou Dissatisfied by the ongoing political crisis, the military seized power on February 18, 2010, ousting Tandja and immediately dissolving the National Assembly. Unlike Tandja and Abouba, Oumarou was initially not detained by the new junta; however, he was arrested on 29 March 2010, along with a number of other high-ranking associates and loyalists of Tandja. According to Ousmane Cissé, the Minister of the Interior, they were arrested because they were involved in "subversive activities and undermining of the government and the transition process". Cissé stressed that any activity aimed at undermining the government or stirring unrest would be punished. Nevertheless, the junta released Oumarou and the others on 2 April 2010. Cissé, the Interior Minister, said that their "destabilisation operation" had been "neutralised" and that the suspects were being released "to calm things down".
Seyni Oumarou The MNSD announced on 10 August 2010 that Oumarou had been designated as its presidential candidate at a party congress. He was ultimately defeated by Mahamadou Issoufou in a second round of voting, held in March 2011.
Seyni Oumarou Oumarou remained Minister of State for Equipment until Amadou and his government lost a no-confidence vote in the National Assembly on May 31, 2007. President Mamadou Tandja chose Oumarou to succeed Amadou as Prime Minister on June 3; Oumarou had been proposed for the position by the MNSD and was one of three candidates presented to Tandja by the National Assembly. Oumarou's appointment was opposed by the main opposition party, the Nigerien Party for Democracy and Socialism (PNDS), as well as a number of civil society organizations, because he was so closely associated with his predecessor and possibly tainted by the same corruption scandal related to embezzlement of education funds that caused the no-confidence vote against Amadou. Oumarou was sworn in as Prime Minister on June 7, and his new government was named on June 9, with 32 members (including Oumarou).
Seyni Oumarou In January 2009, Oumarou's government asked the National Assembly to strip three MNSD deputies of their immunity from prosecution. Shortly thereafter, Amadou supporters tabled a motion of no confidence against Oumarou.
Seyni Oumarou In August 2009, a constitutional referendum providing for a three-year extension of Tandja's term was successful amidst an opposition boycott. A parliamentary election was planned for October 2009, and Oumarou headed the MNSD's candidate list in Tillabéri. Because he was standing as a parliamentary candidate, he had to resign from the government, and on September 24, 2009 state media reported that he had resigned, along with two other ministers who were also running. Albade Abouba, the Minister of the Interior, was appointed to replace him as Prime Minister in an acting capacity.
