An activist and member of the #FixTheCountry campaign, Okatakyie Afrifa Mensah has warned that there will be a takeover of the nation from the government soon. According to him, there is no hope in the current crop of this leadership, and that it would be right to rescue it before it gets too late.
No one can tell if his comments signify a coup but the demeanor with which he made this statement is rather fierce. Okatakyie Afrifa Mensah stressed that the youth is frustrated with leadership and the failures of the country given that the woes of the younger generations keep compounding as a result of the decisions and inactions of the government.
On TV YXZ's Abranaso show today, Okatakyie Afrifa Mensah said his comment is not misplaced as far as the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his youthful years in 1995 led a protest against President Jerry John Rawlings [late] with a similar call. He emphasized that such is the spirit yet theirs would resonate among the people to redeem the nation from hopeless and directionless leadership.
"We will take over this country because the country belongs to us. You cannot help us. It's a very hopeless leadership we have in this country. What kind of leadership is this?
"In 1995, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo told J.J Rawlings that he and the people are taking back their nation. So, we too will rescue this nation!" he exclaimed.
Okatakyie Afrifa continued that Ghanaians have been deceived to believe that the governing New Patriotic Party was the 'messiah' to the country's problems. He noted that the worse the country has ever experienced in terms of development is what the NPP had given the country.
"We thought the NPP was different but it is worse. They impressed the people of this nation that J.J Rawlings' government was corrupt but they are now caught up in the same crisis," he added.
