The coup in Guinea is one development that has striked the heart of Africa, severely. Certain African presidents are so keen on leaning on to power that they forget the harm that such occurences may cause the citizens of the country.
Whenever there is a political instability, riots break out, people lose their lives and property are destroyed in their numbers. Ghanaians are of the view that for Africa to progress, the leaders of the nations need to come to terms with the laid down constitutional procedures and lay down their self interests.
The Economic Commission of West African States of which the president of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo is the chairperson has condemned the act of the military of Guinea in their staged coup against Alpha Conde, the president of Guinea.
Anyone that has been following the story closely would be aware that Alpha Conde has served his constitutionally mandated two terms as president, made up of ten years each, but has manipulated events to allow him to rule for a third term. Possibly, the military of Guinea have feared that he could decide to hold on to power for as long as he wanted and so, the coup to take him out of power.
Ghanaians have reacted massively to an update posted on the Facebook page of the president of the Republic of Ghana who also stands as the Chairperson of the Ecowas Authority. Several opinions were made and while others blame the Ecowas Authority for their reluctance to deal with the underlying cause of such a coup, others have praised the chairperson of the Ecowas Authority, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo for his role, aimed at achieving peace in the country, and Africa as a whole.
George Asante seems to praise Nana Addo, but Germain has advised for the problem to be solved at the grassroots.
Nam Iddris has questioned the Ecowas Authority on why they did not interfere with Alpha Conde's decision to reconstruct the constitution. Others also blamed the Ecowas leaders, while some have also thanked God for Ghana.
Do you think it is right to blame Ecowas for these developments at Guinea?
