Former member of the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC), Major Kwadwo Boakye-Djan (Rtd) has said he stands by his comments suggesting there is likely to be a ‘civil war’ should the EC go ahead to compile a new voters’ register.

He claimed that the decision by the EC could portend chaos in the country.

Major Boakye-Djan was released from police custody after he was arrested for allegedly beating war drums.

But speaking in an interview monitored by ABC News, Major Boakye-Djan said he will not retract his statement and ready to face the police in court over the accusations made against him.

Asiedu Nketia endorses Boakye-Djan for alleged ‘warmongering’ comment

According to him, his statement didn’t suggest he will conspire with people to create chaos if the EC goes ahead with the registration exercise but rather sought to warn the country of the dangers that lie before us if EC sticks to its plans.

“I am not changing my mind. It’s a conclusion I arrived at after a study and experience in war history. If they do it, it will happen. If they don’t do it, it won’t happen. That doesn’t mean that I have conspired with people to cause a war. I stand by those words. They should charge, that’s why we’re in a democracy. We will go and contest it vigorously in court,” he stated.

NDC’s General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia has endorsed Boakye-Djans’ comments saying he did no wrong and must be commended for warning the country of what might happen in the future if EC continues with its exercise.

Asiedu Nketia said “I’m commending Boakye Gyan for the comments made. Based on his experience, he advised EC’s decision could lead to coup d’état because he has witnessed it before. Hasn’t Boakye Gyan led a coup before? So if he says this, that it might lead to coup so stop it, what wrong has he done?”
