Brigadier Joseph Nunoo-Mensah, former Chief of Defence Staff of the Ghana Armed Forces in an interview on Neat FM, stated that Ghanaians are prisoners to political parties.
“We have been taken prisoners by the political parties and we are not doing anything about it,” Nunoo-Mensah states.
When asked by the host, what Ghanaians can do, Brigadier Joseph Nunoo-Mensah said ‘are there not men in the country, second world war.’
“Germany was bashing British, a man called Winston Churchill became the Prime Minister, he said we shall never surrender, this is not the end of the war. It is not even the beginning of the end but the end of the beginning,” Nunoo-Mensah noted.
He added that we need that tough fighting language now to left Ghana up. “The Ghana that is wounded but not dead,” he further added.
“I was very sad when I visited Dorwenya. All the irrigation dams are just there yet we are hungry. This is foolishness,” Nunoo-Mensah says.
Brigadier Joseph Nunoo-Mensah noted he doesn’t like the way the military now in politics. “They are being used as tools. Soldiers are not political party institution. They are a national institution. They are there to protect Ghana not to be used as a political tool by any party.”
“We have to be careful. Don’t think that I talk too much,” he concluded.
