Good governance is the only remedy for coups, according to Prof. Gyampo. Prof. Ransford Gyampo, a lecturer in political science, predicts that there will be more coups in Africa in the future.
He thinks that the military will take control in places where the people are ignored and that this will continue.
According to Ransford Gyampo, coups in Africa won’t stop until there is decent government and the populace isn’t taken for granted.
He mentioned this while appearing on TV3, a station based in Accra.
More coups where politicians continue to take the populace for granted are likely to occur. Good governance is the answer to military intervention, he claimed.
Recent coups have taken place throughout Africa.
The republic of Gabon in Central Africa is the most recent nation to experience such action.
The president of the nation was removed on Wednesday. His family has been in charge for more than 50 years.
Since taking power in the oil-rich but impoverished country over 14 years ago, Ali Bongo Ondimba, popularly known as Ali Bongo, has been accused of electoral fraud and corruption. People in the nation’s capital were seen rejoicing and hugging soldiers on the street after the coup.
