Hon Zuwera Mohammed Ibrahimah
March 17, 2022

A member of Ghana’s Foreign Affairs Committee Zuwera Mohammed Ibrahimah said the silence of President  Nana Akufo-Addo on the demolition of the Bulgarian Embassy is extremely worrying despite the fact that he was quick to speak on the Supreme Court ruling on the voting right of a First Deputy Speaker.

“Do we take it that he is okay with it that is why he does not want to speak? We need to hear from him, the international community and the Government of Bulgaria need to hear from him, he needs to speak and sensibly to this matter, otherwise he puts the life of Ghanaians out there in danger”.

 The Salaga South lawmaker who visited cantonment on Wednesday, March 16, 2022 where a demolishing exercise had been carried out with the sprigging up of a private property on the said land noted that, what has taken place is in violation of the Vienna Convention and not acceptable and should not happen at this time when President Nana Akufo-Addo, a lawyer is a president of Ghana.

“Again, as a former Foreign Minister of Ghana we do not expect this under his watch. Where we stand now by the dictate of the Vienna Convention is Bulgaria, everywhere a mission is cited, so when you are a Ghanaian outside the country and you get into trouble and you manage to get into the Ghana High Commission no security can arrest you, unless they go through the mission. That is how this things work, so maybe there is another explanation otherwise it just does not make sense”.

She further pointed out that there is a genuine  fear that there could be uprising  and to think the AU is organising a conference in Accra which the president opened yesterday and the main theme running across the various discussion has been coup and uprising of unconstitutional change of government.
