“I believe that any discussion about foreign interference in Egypt would be detrimental to the Egyptian people,” editor of Pan-African News Wire Abayomi Azikiwe said by phone on Wednesday.

“The solution is for the Egyptian people to develop their own government of national unity and to form alliances throughout the African Union,” he added.
