The Dean of Academic Affairs at the Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College (GAFCSC) has advised John Mahama to avoid talks that seem to discredit government’s effort to handle the Western Togoland conflicts in the Volta Region.
Dr Vladimir Antwi Danso said these talks are what the separatists need to fuel their agenda and recruit new followers.
Speaking on Joy FM’s Top Story he stated that it is inadvisable for parties to feed into the issue to score political points.
“The politicisation is going to exacerbate the situation, it is very unfortunate. This is not the time to either support or try to foment any trouble with this situation,” he told Evans Mensah, Thursday.
Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) had described as unserious, President Akufo-Addo’s posture towards the agitations by some secessionists’ group in the country.
According to Mr Mahama, the President has not exhibited tact in his attempt to resolve the canker.
Mr Akufo-Addo also justified his earlier silence on the matter saying the country at such a crucial time needs a leader who would not panic.
Dr Antwi Danso stated that the NDC Flagbearer should offer advice on how to help deal with the situation, if he has some.
He stated that John Mahama should leave the rumours surrounding the conflicts and voter suppression be, especially, since no evidence has been submitted as proof.
“We are trying to make it difficult for the security agencies to gather good information to quell the situation” with talks like these, he added.
This is the time for a bipartisan approach to dealing with the national issue especially with an election ahead, Dr Antwi Danso said.
He stated, “let us not play into the public gallery for political mark scoring and then think that that will help election, it will make it worse.”
