A retired military capo and former security advisor to former President John Dramani Mahama, Brigadier General Nunoo Mensah is advocating for the combination of both military and civilian governance in the country.
In the view of the former military officer, civilians have failed the state and from what he has gathered over the years, civilians are incompetent to manage the affairs of state.
He gave the suggestion in an interview with Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm.
‘’I don’t think civilians alone can rule Ghana. They should invite the military to help them. They [civilians] cannot plan and rule, and it is not only limited to Ghana but the entire Africa.’’
When asked how the military could help per his call, he said, I am not saying they should run this country but be at the background and help.
He recounted how former president Mills, wanted to use retired military officers as DCEs but his party, would not allow him since they were not members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He said, they should not be at the frontline but at least they should be at the background and help. When you suggest these things people don’t take it. I am not a politician but a patriot who is interested in seeing to it that the country progress.
