In the military, many serve for various reasons, not for thanks or for strangers to tell them they appreciate their sacrifice and it is also not for the money. Those who did were often described as losers who couldn't get into college and had no other options.

You are not the new Rawlings we were hoping for, you have missed your destiny- Novelist to Doumbouya
It seems those who claim to possess the spirit of revolution are themselves wolves in sheep clothing and they have ulterior motives of staying in power or enriching themselves. How many times have military men taken up arms against the injustice and corruption in a country, only for them to end up like these same dictators?
An English Catholic historian, politician, and writer John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton is best known for his remark, "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men." It seems relinquishing power to a political opponent or an incoming presidential candidate is the hardest thing for most African leaders to do.
The beauty of democracy is to enable people to express themselves freely devoid of any intimidation after that and respect the rights of the masses. Then also to be granted the free will to exercise your franchise in a free and fair election, bears the hallmark of democracy.
Democracy is a system of governance that has been described as the best for any nation on the planet. For a country to progress, it must ensure that all of its citizens are included in decision-making and everyone has the free will to determine who rules over them.
Gen Al Sisi, who was seen with gun and protested against Doumbouya finally arrested by special force
The Bible admonishes people to be of good character and be mindful of their choice of words especially when they are addressing people in authority. It states in proverbs that "a soft answer turns away wrath but the lips of a fool bring trouble for him." You can go about your daily rantings against those in authority but to speak ill of a military man in power will surely have dire consequences.
Dictatorship is the form of ruling whereby an individual who wields absolute power uses it to brutalize his people and to extend his stay in office. However, other known political figures in the past have performed very well although they were despots. Their rule rather brought about great economic growth and development which was in the interest of the people and the nation.
The police is a security force in charge of maintaining public order and the safety of citizens through the use of different civic and social tools, among which, the use of force would be the last tool carried out to establish public order. The police force is subject to the orders of the State.
The Bible states that "to everything that has a beginning, there is surely an end." This statement means that no matter how powerful one becomes, his time to retire or exit will come. However, the circumstances which will lead to the downfall of a person remain a mystery and whether it will be betrayal or not it is unpredictable.
The military has discounted social media reports that the presidential jet – the Falcon EX… flew children of a close relative of the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to do Christmas shopping in the United Kingdom (UK) and is warning against dragging it into partisan politics. The Ghana Armed Forces in a statement signed by Commander Andy La-Anyane, acting Director, Public Relations, dismissed the reports as untrue and malicious and says, it has referred the publication to the Inspector General of Police for investigation.
When authoritarian regimes refuse to handover power peacefully and engage in all sorts of manipulative acts to extend their stay in power and subsequently unleash violence to suppress dissenting views, it is the masses that suffers. The mothers are asking about the whereabouts of their sons and daughters, wives calling out names of their husbands and children looking for their parents.
