Brigadier-General Joseph Nunoo-Mensah, a former National Security Advisor, has revealed that all attempts to meet with President Akufo-Addo to discuss the prospect of a coup in Ghana have failed.
On Rainbow Radio 87.5FM’s Frontline, he disclosed that he and another former army commander had requested an audience with the President to discuss the latest coups in Burkina Faso and Mali, as well as the possibility of a coup in Ghana.
He and another former commander of the Ghana Armed Forces, according to him, have noticed several symptoms that could lead to a coup in Ghana.
All attempts to communicate with the President, however, have failed.
He advised Ghanaians to be ready for what lies ahead since the indications are already there on the streets.
Ghana is in danger, according to the former Chief of Defence Staff of the Ghana Armed Forces, but our leaders have refused to be on watch and address the hardships Ghanaians are enduring.
“As a senior retired military officer, I was concerned a few months ago,” he explained. Myself and a former military commander, General Selasi (rtd), attempted to meet with the President last year to express our concerns. We had our doubts. We, as security personnel, could see what was about to happen. However, we were never given the opportunity to meet the President. We haven’t had the opportunity to meet him yet. I only tell it how it is. What we worry will happen if we don’t take precautions.”
He also said that he originally discussed the subject with Kwame Mpiani, but that the President was already in America at the time.
Later, he was summoned to a meeting with the Minister of National Security, which he described as regrettable.
“I’m not lying to you. I’m telling you the truth. If they think we’re selling lies, I’ll swear by the Bible. I am concerned about the future of this country. Young males are losing their minds. This was not the case in Ghana. Something isn’t right. “I’m saddened, and our youth are enraged and on the verge of exploding,” he said.
