The Member of Parliament for Nhyiaeso, Dr. Stephen Amoah has made a strong case for why people must not be wishing for a coup in Ghana.
Speaking to TV3 in an interview, the Parliamentarian argued that a coup does not know political colours and hence when it happens, everyone in the country will suffer.
He stressed that Ghanaians must always cherish the democracy of the country, pleading that no one should even dream about a coup.
“This country if there is coup all of us will suffer. Nobody should think that maybe it will affect party in government. Don’t even dream of coup, don’t,” Dr. Stephen Amoah shared during an engagement on the ‘Key Points’ show.
The Nhyiaeso MP continued, “Nobody knows the preparation of another person so people shouldn’t think they will sit there and hit scorn on the other people to put defensive mechanism to protect their lives and fundamental, human right, their relatives, and friends.
“So people should not because nobody knows the other person. That is why no matter what I speak I am careful, and I respect people.”
In the last few months, there have been several talks about coups following some comments from certain people.
FixTheCountry leader Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawo has been arrested by the Police and standing trial for posting on social media that he will stage a coup if the controversial electronic transaction levy is passed by the government.
Similarly, the Bono Regional chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Abronye DC was also arrested by the Police for falsely accusing former President John Dramani Mahama of having intentions to stage a coup.
