Your ‘Coup D’état’ Comment Is Very Irresponsible – Sefa Kayi Replies Asiedu Nketia

Host of Peace FM’s morning show “Kokrokoo”, Kwami Sefa Kayi, affectionately called ‘Chairman General’, has chipped in his thoughts on NDC National Chairman, Johnson Asiedu Nketia’s seeming call for a coup d’état in Ghana.

Johnson Asiedu Nketia, in an interview on Joy News, said “Ghana is more than ripe for a coup d’état but the only thing that is saving us is the tolerance of Ghanaians”.

He continued; “If you look at our history, you will see that the things that have led to previous coup d’états in this country were even less than what is happening now. But the only thing saving us is the tolerance and our collective history.”

In a brief response, the Ghana’s leading morning show host described Asiedu Nketia’s comments as “very very irresponsible”, wondering why he would suggest a coup in the country.

According to Nketia, popularly known as General Mosquito, the current conditions can lead to a coup d’etat in Ghana. While acknowledging the steadfastness of the populace, Nketia cautioned against succumbing to the temptation of disruptive actions, which might offer temporary relief but could ultimately plunge the nation into an even deeper crisis.

He emphasised that a coup d’état could potentially lead to new leaders who were equally intransigent, perpetuating a cycle of instability.

There may be situations that you don’t like and you may be tempted to think that nowhere can be worse than where we are now, so let us disrupt. You’ll disrupt, you will have some relief, but the relief will be short-lived and the relief can lead you into another problem where the new leaders may equally be intransigent. So it will mean that you’ve not solved the problem and that knowledge by Ghanaians is what we’re hanging on to now.”

He encouraged the use of available tools such as peaceful protests, constructive criticism of state institutions, and ensuring that these institutions uphold their responsibilities with integrity.
