President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said that there are no justifications in the military intervention in the governance of a country in spite of the reasons the men in uniform always give for their actions.
Nana Addo, speaking in an interview with Ash FM, a Kumasi-based FM on Saturday, October 2nd, 2021, as part of his tour of the Ashanti Region, His excellency Akufo-Addo said Ghana has been enjoying political stability since 1992 because the Ghanaian people have the opportunity, every four years, to use the ballot box to decide whether to change a government or maintain one in office.
His Excellency Nana Addo stated that, to be honest, he is not speaking (now) as Chairman of ECOWAS, he supports the idea… he feels ECOWAS protocols on good governance should outlaw the third-term mandates in any country. He feels strongly it is something that we ought to do to prevent what is happening in Guinea elsewhere.
When His excellency Nana Addo was asked why the regional bloc looked on while Alpha Conde changed the constitution to extend his term, he replied by saying that there are varied reasons for the military intervention, but there is no justification at any stage.
He further explained that they are opposed, in principle, to any intervention of the military to the political life of a country. The population is capable of resolving its problems through the ballot box.
