The silence of the National Chief Imam, Sheik Dr. Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, former President John Agyekum Kufuor, Most Rev. Charles Palmer-Buckle, and other opinion leaders on the plummeting state of the nation is too loud for Ghana’s success, Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, has said.
The former football administrator cum politician says those who are in the position to talk but fail to do so would have themselves to blame if Ghana falls in a pit.
According to the founding member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), things have deteriorated to the extent that the danger ahead appears inevitable.
It is upon this that he is calling on the clergy, the former President, the National Chief Imam among other people to speak up to issues.
The senior citizen was speaking at a forum held on anti-corruption at the Asogli Palace, in conjunction with the 2023 Asogli Yam Festival and the 20th Celebration of the Agbogbomefia, Togbe Afede XIV, the paramount chief of the Asogli State.
He reminded politicians not to forget the repercussions of a civilian government that fails to honour its responsibilities to its people.
“The chiefs of this country, we have the National House of Chiefs, they have been quiet and I warn them that we are facing a great danger. I would like to bring to the attention of former President J. A Kufuor, that is time to talk. He’s too silent, his refusal to talk is leading the country to a disaster.
“It appears the nation is not in charge by the President [Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo]. This country is facing danger, if you just take a look at what the EC is doing, the signals are there. I know what coup d’etats are. No soldier likes a coup, but when the civilian government fails to be accountable and honest to the people, then he’s called for a removal through the ballot box. Ghana is leading to a great disaster if anyone changes any figures in the 2024 polls.
“Most Reverend Charles Palmer-Buckle, the Chief Imam Osman Nuhu Sharubutu, are the people who should start singing about the danger that is now facing the country. They have all failed to talk. I call also on Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, they should all be watching and be careful. If the nation falls into any disaster, the blood of the people will be on your hands”.
Meanwhile, ASEPA’s Mensah Thompson blamed fallen institutions that have become dormant as the cause of the state’s predicament also at the same event.
