We have found at last an African solution to an African problem – Ablakwa
The Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel
Okudzeto Ablakwa has commended the Ghana Armed
Forces as well as former President John Mahama and
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for their
role in bringing peace to The Gambia.

“We have found at last an African Solution to an
African problem,” he proudly declared on the floor
of Parliament on Wednesday. He was excited that
the sub-regional body ECOWAS did not wait for help
from elsewhere but found it expedient to act
swiftly.

And in that arrangement Ghana played a leading
role, he observed, adding that the current
president and his predecessor ought to be
commended. He said what is more important is that
it was a collective African solution that brought
the victory in the Gambian situation.

The former Deputy Minister of Education in charge
of tertiary institutions told the house that he is
more concerned about the way forward.

According to him, The Gambia is challenged when it
comes to its institutions, it has a very weak
constitutional arrangement, even the petition that
the out-gone President Jammeh tried to put before
the court, he struggled to get judges to sit on
the case, the MP observed.

He called for a concerted effort from ECOWAS
member states to help The Gambia to build its
democratic institutions. Mr. Ablakwa’s comment
follows a statement by the Minister of Defense
Dominic Nitiwul on The Gambia. The sector minister
said the Ghanaian soldiers and the ECOWAS troops
are safe.

The minister also said about 158 out of the 205
Ghanaian troops in The Gambia would be arriving
back to Ghana by 21st February.
