A singer and actor, Wanlov The Kubolor has given the Ghanaian military some recommendations in relation to the ongoing Niger crisis.
The Ghanaian-born Romanian feels that risking their lives in order to combat the situation in neighboring Niger is at the risk of the Ghanaian military force.
In a video he posted, Wanlov said it was wrong to support the Europeans’ manipulation of black people by pitting them against one another.
He continued by saying that while European conquerors continue to oppress people of color, taking the initiative to fight other Africans is not commendable.
“Chale what’s up this is Kubolor, I get a message to the Ghana Army. I beg you guys waa make you no risk your lives and go fight fellow black people in Niger because you will be fighting for Macron.
“The fact say the leaders for Niger are corrupt that’s why the people decided to overthrow their leader. and so going to fight in Niger will rather be encouraging bad leadership and manipulation by the whites”
The democratically elected president of Niger, Mohamed Bazoum, was the target of a coup by elements of the military soon before the nation’s National Day on August 3, which also marked 63 years since the country’s nominal independence from France in 1960.
The Niger problem demonstrates that France has kept a semblance of an empire in Africa despite a protracted and brutal phase of decolonization.
