Abdullahi Ganduje, the national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has revealed that competent governance would end the rising military coups and intervention in Africa.
He advised African leaders to boost public welfare to rein in the military's growing influence in politics and the rule of law.
When Stephen Ayensu Ntim, national chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ghana's ruling party, visited him on Sunday at his home in Asokoro, Abuja, the APC leader made this statement.
Ganduje remarked that the majority of Africans endure miserable living conditions.
He begged all levels of authority to practise good governance to lessen the suffering of the populace.
“You are breaking the ice between leaders of political parties in Africa. Political parties are the fulcrum of democracy to stop military intervention in Africa.
“We need to provide good governance to our people to make military coups less attractive in Africa", Ganduje stated.
Ganduje went on to discuss the lengthy relationship between Ghana and Nigeria, emphasising the many similarities between the two nations.
Ntim, who was accompanied by Rashid Bawa, the Ghanaian Ambassador to Nigeria, discussed the importance of working with Nigeria's APC government to maintain power in Ghana.
“APC and NPP should be able to share ideals so that we can remain in government for the long term. We will learn a lot from APC,” he said.
