According to the President, term limits improve “stability of democracies, particularly presidential systems,” and that “speaking personally, I endorse the idea of term limits for Presidents since it prevents abuse of office and coups d'états.”
“To be honest, I am not speaking (today) as Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), but I support the idea. Third-term mandates in any country, in my opinion, should be prohibited by ECOWAS conventions on good governance. I believe that is something we should do to prevent what is occurring in Guinea from happening elsewhere,” he continued.
“There are various reasons for the military involvement, but there is no justification at any stage,” President Akufo-Addo remarked when asked why the regional bloc stood by while Alpha Conde amended the constitution to extend his tenure.
“We are opposed, in principle, to any military intervention in a country's political life,” he stated. The people have the ability to solve their problems through the vote box.”
