Ghanaians blast and roast Nana Addo for his tweet discouraging Coup in Ghana

Ghana as a nation has had about five successful coup d'etat and other unsuccessful ones. But the country has enjoyed political stability since 1992. In a country whose democracy is the yardstick used in measuring the standard of good governance on the continent, coup d'etat should be the least of their worries. But the current coup d'etat in our sister nation, Guinea, has awoken Ghana from her slumber. Leaders in Ghana now see they cannot be complacent and think all is well and not tighten measures put in place to guard against the possibility of a coup d'etat in Ghana. It will be recalled that there are people who are currently on trial for allegedly plotting a coup d'etat in the country.

In reaction to this, the President of the land, Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo, has reiterated his support for democracy and the need for Ghanaians to value the democratic system we enjoy as a country by using elections to change a non-performing president as against using coup d'etat. In a tweet made by the president, he also stressed that, even if Ghanaians think he as a president is not doing well, they should resort to the ballot box to replace him and not a coup d'etat.

But in our article captioned, "If I'm Not Doing Well, Vote Against Me In 4 Years Time, We Don't Need Coup- Nana Akuffo-Addo" on Opera News Hub by, readers who felt didn't take what the president said kindly, took to the comments section to express their frustrations.
