I don’t like the Ghana I am leaving behind – Nunoo-Mensah

A former Chief of Staff of the Ghana Armed Forces, Brigadier Joseph Nunoo-Mensah has advised the incumbent government to take cues from the experiences of neighbouring countries to avoid any uprising from the citizenry.

According to him, surrounding countries failed to take the plight of their citizens resulting in the recent coup d’etats.

Speaking on JoyNews on February 28, he raised concerns about how the leaders had turned a blind eye to the economic challenges citizens face as though they were nonexistent.

“Let’s look at the nations that have had coup d’etat in recent times in the ECOWAS sub-region, let’s look at ourselves. We have to be honest with ourselves.

“Today in Ghana, we are facing serious economic and social problems; very serious ones but our governments are behaving as if there is no problem.

“When you look at the ordinary people in this country, how they are facing life it is hard, it is rough, but we don’t even want to accept that times are hard,” he told host, Raymond Acquah.
