Condemn Your Colleagues Who Desperately Change The Constitution To Stand For A Third Term – Ablakwa To African Leaders



African leaders must be bold enough to call out colleagues who flout democratic principles by changing constitution in order to run for third term as president, North Tongu lawmaker, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said.

Ablakwa is of the view that, “instead of waiting late in the day to threaten sanctions on failed democracies, regional and sub-regional blocs such as AU, ECOWAS, SADC and EAC should be boldly proactive in calling out their peers on the wrong track and demanding good governance that meets the expectations of the masses, particularly African youth.”

“African leaders can start by condemning their colleagues amending their constitutions to enable them to stand for third terms, isolating offending politicians and refusing to attend their coronation ceremonies instead of the unprincipled support…”

“If the AU and ECOWAS had not conveniently hidden behind non-interference in internal politics and exhibited courage by stopping President Conde’s third term agenda a couple of years back, this weekend’s explosion would have been averted,” the Ranking Member on Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs said.
