The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has expressed his disapproval of the recent surge in military coups happening across the African continent.
As per the esteemed monarch’s perspective, he believes that coups contribute to the challenges Africa is grappling with and should not be seen as remedies for the ongoing crises.
Speaking at the St. Andrews Africa Summit in Scotland over the weekend, Otumfuo emphasized that regardless of the situation, firearms should not be considered a solution.
“Let me make it categorically clear that regardless of the circumstances, I do not think that a military takeover offers the solution to the problems of our continent.
“There was a time when circumstances produced the notion that the gun was the solution, those times are over. He said.
