Former President John Dramani Mahama has urged Ghanaians to follow the law and not support any potential coup in the nation.

This comes after the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, declared that Ghana is ready for a coup.

Mr Nketia told Joy News that, while the takeover of power and the restoration of authoritarian administration are long overdue, what is stopping Ghana from devolving into anarchy is Ghanaians’ extraordinary tolerance.

However, Mr. Mahama, while speaking at the 3rd National Conference of Imams and Regional Imams of Ghana in Kumasi, said despite the nation’s current economic difficulties, planning a coup should not even be a last resort.

Mr. Mahama criticized the Akufo-Addo-led administration for how it has handled the management of the country’s affairs.

The NDC flagbearer lamented, “We told the NPP the path they were taking was dangerous, but our advice fell on deaf ears. And that is the reason we are where we are today, and we are all facing challenges so we all have to help get out of this mess. But we would have to adhere to constitutional governance so that we are not swayed by the alternative of coups.”

“We should know that no matter the hardship, there will be an opportunity for different people to be elected. It is only left with a year for us to say goodbye to some people and welcome others who can fix the economy. So let’s continue respecting the Constitution. We should never think of coups and everything will be fine,” Mahama noted.
