The lawmakers are demanding Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo immediately stop all preparatory mobilization towards deploying Ghanaian soldiers.

“The Ghanaian Parliament has not discussed this matter, unlike other countries, which have had the opportunity to debate these matters and pass a resolution,” Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, a member of parliament’s foreign affairs committee, told the BBC.

“He [President Akufo-Addo] doesn’t have a mandate from the Ghanaian people in this matter… We do not believe a military intervention is the way forward,” he added.

The country’s minority lawmakers hold the view that diplomacy and constructive dialogue should be explored.

“Ghana’s gallant soldiers must be kept far away from the looming bloodbath and escalating geopolitical confrontation, which is bound to explode with far-reaching consequences for stability in an already volatile region,” Mr. Ablakwa said.

Ghana’s minority lawmakers say the scarce resources of the state should be directed at resolving the country’s economic challenges following a $3 billion (£2.4 billion) International Monetary Fund (IMF) bailout rather than getting entangled in a “proxy geopolitical confrontation”.
