Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has warned Africaan leaders and unions like AU and ECOWAS that the era of coups may return if corruption, unemployment, poverty persist in Africa.
He made the comment on Twitter following the shocking coup d’etat that happened in Guinea on Sunday.
According to the former deputy minister of Education, it is high time ECOWAS and AU become proactive and stop the rhetorics.
“The disturbing development s in Guinea which comes after a similar undesirable military interventions in Mali, Chad, Sudan must remind African leaders that the coup era of the 1960s and 80s may sadly returned if the unwarranted thirst for third term, corruptions, joblessness, poverty manipulation of constitution, profligacy of the ruling elite and naked impunity are not curbed,” he tweeted.
“Instead of waiting late in the day to hearten sanctions on failed democracies and cub regional blocs such as AU, ECOWAS, SADC and EAC should be boldly proactive in calling out their peers on the wrong track and demanding good governance that meets the expectations of the masses, particularly African youth.”
