The Bono Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe, also known as Abronye DC has described as ‘worrying’ former President John Mahama’s failure to condemn persons preaching coup d’etats in the country.
Speaking on Angel FM’s Anɔpa Bɔfoɔ on Thursday, Abronye DC said he had expected the former President to condemn the incessant calls for coup d’etats by persons alligned to the cause of the NDC instead of attacking President Akufo-Addo for arresting and prosecuting such persons.
According to him, the failure of the former Ghana leader to condemn persons who are calling for coup d’etats is akin to offering his support to the comments.
One of the convenors of the #FixTheCountry movement, Mr Oliver Mawuse Barker-Vormawor is the latest person to have been arrested for making comments that has been deemed to have been unfit.
He has been charged with treason felony and remanded into police custody.
Ten persons are also currently standing trial for supposedly plotting to overthrow the government.
The 10 are in court for allegedly taking part in the activities of Take Action Ghana (TAG), a non-governmental organisation, accused by the prosecution of planning to destabilise the country to take over the government.
The accused persons include Dr Frederick Mac-Palm, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Dr Benjamin Agordzo, Colonel Samuel Kodzo Gameli, Bright Alan Debrah Ofosu (a fleet manager), Johannes Zikpi (a civilian employee of the Ghana Armed Forces) and Donya Kafui, aka Ezor (a blacksmith).
