Only mature thinking halts the cycle of endless coup d’états – Nyaho Nyaho Tamekloe

Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamekloe, a prominent figure in the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has attributed the recurrent instances of coup d’états in Africa to a dearth of mature leadership.

He contends that unless African leaders adopt a more mature and thoughtful approach, coup d’états will continue to plague the continent.

The seasoned politician cited the recent coup in Niger on July 26, 2023. He pointed out that many African leaders are primarily concerned with manipulating systems to their advantage and diverting resources for personal gain.

Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamekloe stressed that this issue extends beyond Ghana to encompass the entire African continent. He emphasized that leadership practices that involve embezzlement and power retention are responsible for the current state of affairs, as evidenced by the situation in Niger and the broader West African region.

He asserted, “Until our thinking matures, coup d’états will persist,” emphasizing the need for a shift in mindset.

Dr. Nyaho Nyaho Tamekloe further highlighted that the concern reaches beyond the immediate coup itself. He expounded that the insatiable greed of current politicians and their successors poses a significant risk to the stability of their nations.

He commented, “These so-called successors are more inclined to undermine the country, driven by their quest for personal wealth and property. Nation-building cannot be achieved through such motives.”

Recent instances of coup d’états in Western and Northern Africa have raised serious concerns both within the sub-region and internationally. The most recent coup, led by General Abdourahmane Tchiani, occurred in Niger. The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), headed by Nigerian President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has been actively working to restore democracy and stability in affected areas.

Nevertheless, the burgeoning alliance formed by the military junta across countries such as Mali, Burkina Faso, Chad, Guinea, Sudan, and now Niger, presents a formidable challenge for the West African bloc’s efforts to maintain regional stability.
