The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Samuel Nartey George, has revealed that he was burning with passion to become a soldier for a reason.

According to him, he wanted to enter the military in 2005 after he graduated from the Kwame University of Science and Technology (KNUST) to plot a coup against the then Kufuor administration.

Speaking on the 3FM Drive and monitored by YEN.com.gh, he said Kufuor was maltreating former President Jerry John Rawlings by withdrawing all his privileges when he became president.

“...my dream was to go into the Army and stage a coup because I didn’t like President Kufuor that much at the time. I thought he was maltreating Rawlings,” he said.

Asked whether that desire to still overthrow a government has changed, he answered in the affirmative and mentioned how kind former president Kufuor has been to him.

He mentioned that he met Kufuor about two years ago and narrated his 'evil' intention to him and all he did was to give him a hard knock.

“I said to him that Dad, look at me and you sitting in your house and coming to you for advice. President Kufuor has been a very good person to me.

“....He asked why? And I said when I was leaving the university in 2005, I wanted to enter the army and stage a coup and take you out because of the way you were treating Rawlings....He drew me closer to him and gave me a knock,” Sam George added.

He further accused the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, of blackmailing some National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament (MPs) with the double salary scandal.

This, according to him, was the reason why the opposition MPs passed all the president’s ministerial nominees, despite expressing grave dissatisfaction with some of them.
