Stop advocating coup d’etats in Ghana – Deputy Defence Minister

Stop advocating coup d’etats in Ghana – Deputy Defence Minister

A word of caution has been sent by Deputy Defense Minister Kofi Amankwah-Manu to persons advocating a military take over or simply put coup de tat’ in Ghana to stop making such utterances.

He explained that such utterances create fear and panic and stall development.

He gave this advice whiles briefing the press on the sidelines of a programme to birth a livelihood and empowerment project for the youth of the Atwima Kwawoma Constituency.

The legislator for Atwima Kwanwoma  Constituency added that people who trumpet coups do so out of ignorance because they do not know the consequences of coups.

“Ghana has seen it before and we all know how devastating it was, we lost lives and also lagged development,” he said.

He added that “most coup sponsors are mostly not part of the rebellion, they run to other countries and cause mayhem only for innocent people to die.”

“How do we win investors if people continue to spread negative rumours; only to turn around and criticize the government on the same economy they, the coup mongers are working against?” He quizzed.

In a bid to help his constituents, he has launched the Kofi Amankwa-Manu Livelihood Development Project aimed at providing a sustainable livelihood for thousands of youths. He presented 320 sewing machines to beneficiaries to kickstart the fashion module.

In relation to that, the convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement Oliver Barker-Vormawor is in police grips for allegedly writing on social media that he would topple the government if the E-levy bill is passed.

He is expected to be arraigned on Monday, February 14.

“Mr Oliver Baker-Vormawor has been arrested by the Tema Regional Police Command following a post he allegedly made on social media platforms to the effect that he would stage himself if the E-levy bill is passed by Parliament,” portions of the Police statement announcing his arrest noted.
