Former National Security Advisor warns of an impending uprising in Ghana

A former National Security Advisor and former Chief of Defence Staff of the Ghana Armed Forces, Brigadier General Joseph Nunoo-Mensah has sent a word of caution to Ghana to prepare for what lies ahead of us as a nation, according to him signals on the streets are crystal clear of the impending danger.

He indicated that this storm gradually blowing due to teaming numbers of unemployed youth in the country.

“We are sitting on a huge time bomb. It is as if we are a nation of mad brainless people. We have so many mad people on the street yet we are buying land cruisers. We have so many unemployed youths unemployed on the streets, yet we do not care,” he said.

“So many children on the streets are a danger. People are begging for arms on the streets. Ordinary people don’t have a place to lay their heads, all these are dangers and signs of hard days ahead of us”.

He cautioned that there could be an uprising due to the deteriorating experience people go through in life daily resulting from the hardships in the country. “It [uprising] could happen because the situation is bad. Children are dying. People are going to Libya and dying on the road. The world is desperate now and can’t go on like this”.

“If I, a single man, could build a school for this nation, how come an entire state or government cannot do that?”

Brigadier-General Nunoo-Mensah explained that “we are a Christian and loving nation, we should not be stealing when we get to the top”.

“I swear, if we don’t change, it [uprising] will happen if we keep thinking like this. Now it’s a matter of life and death,” he concluded.
