Former Member of Parliament for Adentan constituency and the current National Communication Director of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Yaw Buaben Asamoa, has cautioned Ghanaians harbouring thoughts of a possible government takeover to immediately desist from it.
His comments follows the recent and much talked about Parliamentary tussle over the approval or otherwise of the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy where the Minority and Majority are at each other’s throats.
Some critics, particularly on social media, have been calling for a coup d’état as they have no hope in the current administration to take the right decisions towards developing Ghana.
Few days ago, Captain Smart, who is obviously fed up with the way things are going under the leadership of President Nana Akufo-Addo, charged the youth to rise and make demands.
He was arrested within few hours for inciting an uprising and making Onua FM a megaphone for war as described by the National Media Commission.
Reacting to all these developments on Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo” Morning Show with much focus on the 2022 budget, Yaw Buaben Asamoa seized the opportunity to correct the proponents of an uprising or coup d’état in the country.
He reminded them of the benefits of the peace and improvements enjoyed by the citizenry under the Fourth Republic which ushered in Ghana’s democracy.
”To those calling for the overthrow of government because we are suffering, it is not the right way to go. Because if the youth protest and subvert the government, our freedom and current processes will all be ruined. We will now be restarting everything. Collapsing something is easy but the difficulty is with rebuilding it,” he stressed.
