The leadership of ECOWAS has come under severe criticism after the ousting of Alpha Conde by the military junta in Guinea. ECOWAS is still receiving backlashes for not being proactive to issues in the sub-region although they have condemned the coup d'etat in Guinea and have also sanctioned them.
The General Secretary of the CPP, Nana Yaa Akyempim Jantuah, has criticized President Akufo Addo for condemning the coup d'etat that happened in Guinea when he attended the inauguration of the ousted Alpha Conde, knowing well that he tweaked the constitution to win power.
Nana Yaa Akyempim Jantuah made this statement on 'ALHAJI & ALHAJI' on Pan Africa television when she bashed President Akufo Addo for condemning the coup d'etat in Guinea.
According to Nana Yaa Akyempim Jantuah, she was surprised to see the President of Ghana, who is also the chairman of ECOWAS, condemning the coup d'etat in Guinea.
"I was just mortified, and I went cold because as the chairman of ECOWAS, and during the inauguration of Alpha Conde in Guinea, he was there. He was with alassane ouattara, who has also changed the constitution in his country to satisfy himself."
She asked that Akufo Addo being the chairman of ECOWAS, what did he tell Alpha Conde and Alassane Ouattara? How did he advise or even admonished them?
Nana Yaa revealed that there are conventions within ECOWAS, so did Akufo Addo punished anyone for flouting it? The answer is that he didn't.
Akufo Addo went there and supported them. Maybe in his mind, and with his breaking the eight mantras, he is thinking of heading in the same direction.
Nana Yaa Jantuah indicated that nobody knows what motivates ECOWAS leaders to continue to stay in power even if they are not doing well and there is poverty everywhere that after their term has elapsed, they still want to stay in power.
She stated that she grew up in a coup situation in Ghana, and she doesn't think that anybody would want to wish a coup D'etat on this nation at this time because the ramifications of coups are not the best.
But the lesson we all have to learn from what happened in Guinea is that the government should not create counter forces such as the vigilantes and the special forces to counter state institutions because the coup leader in Guinea was part of the president's elite forces.
She added that as Ghanaians we should look at our constitution critically so that nobody uses the loopholes in it as a pretext of breaking the eight years power cycle.
