Retired Military Officer, Captain Nkrabea Effah Dartey has called on the National Security to as a matter of urgency arrest and investigate the Dean of the University of Ghana Law School, Prof. Raymond Atuguba over his ‘imminent coup’ in Ghana comment, MyNewsGh.com reports.
Speaking on Kumasi-based Pure FM with Kwame Adinkrah, Captain (retired) Effah Dartey remarked that economic difficulties should not lead to a coup and as such, Prof. Raymond Atuguba should be immediately arrested for the crime of inciting soldiers and creating insecurity.
“The Professor lacks an intellectual basis for making that statement. He is throwing dust into the eyes of Ghanaians. National Security should investigate him. He should not be allowed to make statements like these.
He should be arrested for crime of inciting soldiers and creating insecurity.
You can’t say because there’s a problem, coup is ripe to happen. I don’t agree with him. For the last time, I don’t agree with him. If I was the Minister, I would have arrested him by now for him to explain to us what he means. He should be arrested as a matter of urgency. Statements like these should not be allowed.” Captain Effah Dartey told Kwame Adinkrah on Pure FM.
The Dean of the University of Ghana School of Law, Professor Raymond Atuguba, speaking at a seminar on Monday, 28th February 2022, made it clear that Ghana’s broke economy may trigger a coup.
“My current assessment that Ghana may be ripe for a coup, is based on my friend’s doctoral search called Why some coups succeed and why others failed. The big part of why certain coups succeed is the economy. What is the state of Ghana’s economy today?
The law lecturer although indicating he did not want a coup to happen in Ghana, however, we could have one if we don’t act quickly.
“We do not want a coup in this country, yet I fear if we don’t act quickly, we will have one on our hands very soon”. Prof. Atuguba said at a forum organized by Solidare Ghana in Accra.
