The founder and leader of the Ghana Union Movement (GUM) party, Pastor Kwabena Andrews, popularly known as Osofo Kyiri Abosom, has indicated that Russia would be an ally of his government when he becomes President.
According to the politician cum founder and leader of the Life Assembly Worship Center, the decision to form allies with the warring nation is informed by the latter’s equipment with weapons which Ghana could rely on for support.
Russia is currently at war with Ukraine, and has captured Kherson, a city which sits at a strategic location west of Ukraine’s Dnipro river.
Kherson is the first major Ukrainian city among previous others captured by the Russian troop on March 3, 2022, since the invasion in February.
The invasion has been described by political blocs as illegal, and as such, Ukraine has been weaponised to defend itself against Russian, with the UK promising more weapons to fortify the country against the advancements of the invader.
“Britain will supply scores of artillery, guns, drones and anti-tank weapons to Ukraine in the coming weeks,” the UK Defence Secretary Ben Wallace is reported to have said in an update to Parliament.
Osofo Kyiri Abosom however is one of the political leaders who seem to be gravitating towards Russia’s side having indicated his intention to form allies with the country.
“If I become the President of Ghana, I will let them come and let them use their guns and bombs and other weapons; I am fascinated by them [the weapons],” he said on Y’adwumanie show on Angel FM, hosted by Ohema Woyeje.
