President Nana Akufo-Addo has said that its not justifiable for the military to take over the governance of a country despite the reason behind such actions.
In an interview with Ash FM as part of the President’s tour to the Ashanti region he noted that the ballot box used in changing government has contributed to the stability Ghanaians enjoy in the country.
“Using the ballot box has contributed to the stability of our country. People believe that if a leader is not doing well, they can vote against that leader in four years’ time. We don’t need a coup to change someone,” he stated.
“To be honest, I am not speaking (now) as Chairman of ECOWAS, I support the idea… I feel ECOWAS protocols on good governance should outlaw the third-term mandates in any country. I feel strongly it is something that we ought to do to prevent what is happening in Guinea elsewhere,” he added
