Former Deputy Health Minister, Dr. Bernard Okoe Boye has warned African leaders about their unbridled thirst for power.
An elite Military unit on Sunday, September 5, 2021 took over the People’s Republic of Guinea, detaining the President, Alpha Condé who changed the country’s constitution to serve a third term in government.
An ecstatic citizens trooped into the streets to celebrate the overthrow of their leader.
Touching on the coup d’état in Guinea, Dr. Okoe Boye advised African leaders to have a good conscience and the fear of God to rule their nations.
”If you have a leader who doesn’t fear God and is without conscience, the leader becomes a danger to the society or his country because he doesn’t know what he’s looking for in the world. Nothing will be enough for you if you don’t fear God and you don’t have conscience. The only way that, after some years in power, you can go back to your house, lie on your bed and sleep is when you know that the one who knows the end from the beginning, the one who has every life in his hands is above and not man”, he warned.
He advised people close to Presidents or nation leaders to tell them bitter truth stressing ”investment in the mind is not a guarantee of progress…If you continue to turn around because one leader speaks, we cannot go anywhere as a country. Those who are closest to any President should have the courage to tell him that you’re trending on dangerous waters”.
He made these comments on Friday’s edition of Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”.Source: Ameyaw Adu Gyamfi/Peacefmonline.com/Ghana
