Additionally, it appears that there are calls for the military to focus on addressing corruption within the country, particularly among politicians, and to work towards recovering stolen funds. This reflects a desire among some Ghanaians for the military to play a role in tackling corruption, which is a significant issue in many countries, including Ghana.
The reference to recent coups in the African Sub-region, such as those in Mali, Burkina Faso, Niger, and Gabon, highlights the broader context of political instability and military involvement in some African countries. Ghana’s commitment to democracy is vital in ensuring that the country remains stable and free from such upheavals.
The main opposition political party has reassured Ghanaians of imminent change and unequivocally stated its opposition to any coup in the country. They emphasize the significant strides made in upholding democratic principles and urge Ghanaians to maintain hope for a transformative shift, with 450 days more to go.
