Ghana Union Movement to hit the streets if troops are send to Niger by Akufo -Addo
The founder of Ghana Union Movement ( GUM), Reverend Christian Kwabena Andrews, popularly known as Osofo Kyiri Abosom, has threatened to lead a demonstration if the President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo — Addo plans to sends Ghanaian troops to Niger as a result of the taking over of the country by the military.
Osofo Kyiri Abosom said this at a press conference at the party’s headoffice in Accra on Monday, August 14, 2023.
He told the press that Ghana already has its own problems and should avoid getting involved in the affairs of other states.
He said he is pleading with our president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo — Addo, that Ghana is already suffering. To him there is no need for us to go and kill our own people. The military men and women are our brothers and sisters.
We are not going to support that movement. If the president refuses to listen to us and something happens, we, the Ghana Union Movement, will embark on a a very serious demonstration against the president and his administration, Because Ghana is a peaceful country, we do not want to shed any blood.
Ghana Union Movement is not supporting the move by ECOWAS to fight amongst ourselves in Niger. Why do we want to go and create a fight ? We have not heard any complaints from Niger. We have not heard even a gunshot, We are urging President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo — Addo to solve his own problems and not to send any troops.
Nigeria equally has issues and the issue is there for them to confront with Boko Haram, he said.
The General Secretary of the party, Anthony Gold Ahinful , told the press that the opening of nominations for flagbearer and national executives will begin from Friday, September 1 to September 8, 2023.
Persons aspiring to be presidential aspirants are required to pay a non -refundable fee of GH¢100,000.
