The immediate-past Speaker of Parliament Prof Aaron Mike Oquaye has opined that coup is not the best way to go in this country.
He is therefore cautioning persons touting coups in Ghana to refrain from making such utterances.
His caution comments after the dean of the University of Ghana Law School, Professor Raymond Atuguba had asked Ghana to act quickly to prevent a coup in Ghana.
The law professor addressing a public event noted that economic hardship which was one of the major reasons for coups was cider y being felt in the Ghana.
“A big part of why certain coups succeed and others fail is the economy. What is the state of Ghana’s economy today?
“At the level of the most irreducible idiomaticity, Ghana is broke. Your nation is radically broke. So broke, the Speaker of Parliament has publicly warned, gavel in hand, that we may not be able to pay the salaries of public sector workers in the next three months,” he said.
But reacting to these claims, Prof. Oquaye has stated that Ghana cannot return to “our dark past”.
