DUA Co-Chair Condemn Coup D’état In Africa

MILITARY TAKEOVERS of governments have been described as retrogressive adventures which leads to extreme poverty and hardship and therefore must be avoided especially, in the West African sub-region.

The Co-Chairperson of Democrat Union of Africa (DUA), Md. Louisa Atta-Agyemang, made the call and tasked African leaders to kick against coups, using the military junta in Niger as the starting point.

“African leaders and the entire world must stand to condemn the recent increase in Coups in the West African Sub-region. The recent one in Niger is one that comes to test the resolve of all of us.

“We must learn that the consequences of Coups are always retrogressive and affects the socio-economic gains made, no matter how little it may be. I believe that no matter how terrible a democracy may be, it is always better than a dictatorship.

“Leaders in the West African region must find diplomatic and all reasonable means to curb this phenomenon starting with Niger. Taking power by force cannot become a way of life. Democracy’s light prevails over Tyranny.”

Md. Louisa Atta-Agyemang, was speaking when she travelled to Togo to attend the congress of the Forum Démocratique Républicain, a member party of DUA and one of the leading political parties in Togo.

Military coups, she stated, have nothing good to offer to the affected county and it’s people, stressing the strong need for world leaders, especially, African leaders to condemn coups.

According to her, all center right political parties, should condemn coups in their respective countries, stressing that under no circumstance should a democratically-elected government be ousted from power through the power of gun.

Under the theme, ‘Let’s Break the Chains of Servitude to Regain the Pride of Being Togolese,’ the FDR’s ccongress provided a platform to empower party members, foster unity, and enhance the party’s resurgence.

The presence of Md. Louisa Atta-Agyemang at the congress signified the dedication of DUA to nurturing cross-border partnerships, specifically with the FDR party, and fostering an exchange of progressive ideas within the African political landscape.

Md. Louis Atta-Agyeman brought her audience’s attention to the fact that development could not thrive in chaos, “so centre right political parties should always work to protect the democratic dispensation of the state”.

Without mincing words, the DUA Co-Chairperson stated emphatically that force take of power via guns, which are becoming the order of the day, notably, in the West African sub-region, should be kicked against.

Md. Atta-Agyeman’s historic journey to Togo was, among other things, aimed at strengthening the existing ties between DUA and the FDR party and also to share meaningful insights with the party.

Her presence at the congress also added to the discourse surrounding democratic principles, as well as enhancing the collective understanding of effective governance and political strategies.

The programme was heavily attended by the high-ranking members of the party led by the Chairperson Hon Apevon Dodji.

Md. Louisa Atta-Agyemang’s participation in the FDR Party Congress is a remarkable step towards strengthening ties, fostering unity, and harnessing the collective power of African political leaders for the betterment of their nations.
