NDC Is Enticing The Military With An Immediate Coup d’état

Former Acting Coordinator of the National Youth Council (NYC) under the Mills-led NDC administration, Dr. Sekou Nkrumah, has taken a dig at the current government stating in unambiguous terms that their lackadaisical approach to solving the nation’s problems, is calling for a military intervention any time soon. He emphatically stated on Okay FM’s "Ade Akye Abia" programme that it is crystal clear that the current NDC government is enticing soldiers to organize a coup d’état just like they have done in the past. The outspoken son of Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah also expressed grave shock at the way the current administration was touting its achievement based on the “worse” legacies of the late former President John Evans Atta Mills. He linked the current erratic power supply, the shortage of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and water to the legacies the late president Mills and his former vice left for the nation. He further advised President Mahama to stop enticing the army officers just like bees are naturally attracted to nectars, and warned him not to ply the unsuccessful path of his predecessor. In his view, the current condition in the country is calling for the pandemonium which could have an adverse effect on the nation should the soldiers carry out this operation. Dr. Nkrumah called on President Mahama to humbly step down from his position and allow individuals with the requisite skills to restore the basic human needs his tenure has denied Ghanaians. Though Sekou Nkrumah used to belong to the NDC, he made it clear that there were “educated” individuals in the party, who should have been elected as leaders to spearhead the party and not the late former president nor President Mahama. He described President Mahama’s leadership skills as appalling and made it clear that it appears he has not learnt anything in office.
