Samuel Nartey George, the Ningo Prampram Member of Parliament (MP), under the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), expressed the desire to join the military in 2005.
This was after he graduated from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
His obsession with the idea of joining the military then was because he hated the treatment being meted to the late former President, Jerry John Rawlings by the Kufuor administration.
Sam George said on 3FM’s Drive that Kufuor’s withdrawal of all the privileges entitled former President Rawlings angered him to the extent that he wanted to be a soldier who would initiate an insurrection against the administration.
“When I was leaving the university, I was 20 years and 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 stated.
Sam George informed former President Kufuor of his nefarious plans two years ago—to which the latter gave him a knock. “He drew me closer to him and gave me a knock,” Sam George stated.
In other news, Brigadier-General Nunoo Mensah warned that Ghana is slowly becoming a haven for anarchy in every format under President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
Nunoo Mensah’s warning comes on the back of the forceful removal of the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator, DCOP Ayensu Opare Addo (rtd) by members of the dreaded Delta Force—a vigilante group affiliated to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“We have been doing this for the past four to five years…it’s not the first time in Kumasi where a coordinator was removed in a similar fashion,” he stated on Starr FM’s Morning Starr and monitored by YEN.com.gh on Tuesday, May 18, 2021.
“There must be an end to this because if we don’t stop it, we’re moving into a state of anarchy…With what I’m seeing today, it’s like going back to the past. If we don’t deal with them and pull out, we’re heading into political anarchy,” he added.
“The president must see to it that there’s order and security in the country. Ghana is sliding slowly but surely into anarchy,” he stressed.
DCOP Ayensu Opare Addo (rtd) was forcefully removed from office as the Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator by some members of the disbanded vigilante group affiliated to the ruling government—the New Patriotic Party (NPP)—the Delta Force.
Handcuffed like a common criminal, the former Ashanti Regional Police Commander was dragged out of office by the thugs in deviance of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s directive for DCOP Opare Addo to continue.
