Deputy Communications Director of the NPP, Mame Yaa Aboagye has condemned comments made by Mr. Barker-Vormawor, the leader of “Fix the Country” group for a post on his Facebook page where he seemingly glorified the coup and unconstitutional act in Guinea.

She described his post as an unfortunate remark and a “threat to peace and stability in this country.”

“In spite of our disagreements, in our current democratic dispensation a coup d’état can never be justified, how much more being celebrated”, she stated.

Guinean Special Forces staged a coup on Sunday, capturing President Alpha Condé and announcing a nationwide curfew "until further notice" as well as the replacement of governors by the military.

As the world is still in shock over the unfortunate events, some members of the biggest opposition party are excited with the current situation in Guinea.

Barker-Vormawor on his Facebook page (Barker H Vogues), welcomed the coup in Guinea saying “Neho! I welcome the news of a military coup in Guinea. Still waiting on confirmation of its success. Hopefully a new transition process is put in place quickly. Guinea shall work again”.

Mame Yaa Aboagye expressed disappointment in Barker-Vormawor, calling on him to retract and apologize to Ghanaians.
