Interior Minister, Mark Woyongo says Ghana will not send former Burkinabe President, Blaise Compaore, away if the beleaguered former leader comes here.
Embattled Compaore was forced to resign as the President of Burkina Faso after a day of violent protests against plans to extend his stay in office. The constitutional amendment he was championing would have enabled him to run for elections next year for another five-years term.
After staging a coup to depose former head of state Thomas Sankara, Blaise Compaore ruled for 27 years. But his “undemocratic rule” came to a head today as he grudgingly stepped down on Friday.
Mr Compaore is believed to be on his way to Ghana which is south of Burkina Faso.bHe is expected to enter into Ghana through unapproved route, according Ghana’s Minister of Interior.
“We will have no choice but to welcome him; that is the practice, we can’t ask him to go back,” Mark Woyongo told Joy FM on Friday.
