The Member of Parliament for the North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto-Ablakwa, also shared his concerns about the recent happenings in Guinea.
According to Okudzeto Ablakwa, if care is not taken, the coup era of the 1960s to 80s will repeat itself if African leaders are not mindful of the things they do.
In a lengthy post sighted by YEN.com.gh on his Facebook page, he said things like the unwarranted thirst for a third term in power, corruption, joblessness, poverty, manipulation of constitutions, amongst other things, could plunge the various countries into coup.
His comments come after coup plotters seized power and allegedly captured Guinea President, Alpha Conde, for wanting to go for a third term in office.
