Sam George has revealed that he once had the desire to join the military just to stage a coup against then President John Agyekum Kufuor.
Speaking to Giovanni Caleb on the 3FM Drive on Wednesday May 26, he said he didn’t like the way Kufuor was maltreating former President Jerry John Rawlings and hence his desire to overthrow him.
“While in KNUST, I joined the university cadet and I became the master for the cadet. My plan was to go into the Army. There were four of us who bought our forms together, the other three are all senior Majors now, one or two of them should become Lieutenant Colonel by the end of this year if everything goes right.
He added “My mother cried and said no, I won’t go into the military because at that time I was quite young. When I was leaving the university I was 20 years and my dream was to go into the Army and stage a coup because I didn’t like President Kufuor that much at the time.
“I thought he was maltreating Rawlings.”
