Coup isn’t needed to change govt in Ghana -Akufo-Addo

President Akufo-Addo is making a strong case that a coup in any form is completely out of place in the transfer of power in Ghana’s democratic experiment.

Ghana has witnessed six successful coups and aborted ones characterised by by the baron of the gun until trantioning from dictatorial regime to democracy backed by 1992 Constitution.

Talking at Kumasi-based Ash FM on Saturday, 2 October 2021, as part of his tour of the Ashanti Region, President Akufo-Addo said “Since 1992, Ghana has witnessed stable democracy on grounds that the Ghanaian populace accept peaceful changes of government through Voting”.

Due to military takeovers in Guinea and Mali, President Akufo-Addo uncovered that ECOWAS has begun checking on its conventions to reinforce the development of vote based system within the sub-region.

“Truth be told, I am not talking (presently) as Chairman of ECOWAS, I support the thought… I feel ECOWAS conventions on great administration should ban the third-term commands in any country. I feel emphatically it is something that we should do to forestall what’s going on in Guinea somewhere else,” he added .

At the point when inquired as to why ECOWAS looked on while Alpha Conde changed the constitution to expand his term, President Akufo-Addo said, “there are different purposes behind military takeovers. However, it is illegitimate at any stage.”

He proceeded, “We are against on a fundamental level, to any military junta to the political existence of a country. The populace is equipped for settling its issues through the voting booth”.
