Though he had the coup, his intention was clear and that was to hand over power to Hilla Limann, however that event triggered several others which then transformed Ghana or set the country on a different path to date.
Most notably included the 80s hunger which flooded the country, citizens fleeing the country to neighboring Western African countries due to hunger, and more.
The author’s take on parenting from the Western African country based on the aforementioned counts to many other events elsewhere around the world. Furthermore, the fraction of humans that are affected mostly when parents absent themselves are children, and it’s not an African situation rather global occurrences that have happened over and over again, hence, rendering many children homeless, or finding refuge in either external family members or in foster homes.
