The study addresses the problem of Coup DEtat in Sub-Sahara Africa specifically focusing upon military takeover and the return of power to civilian control. The study examines three African States Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone. The return of political power to a governing body after a Coup is a very difficult task and this study has indicated that countries under military rule are reluctant to relinquish that power and return to the barracks because of their own vested interest. This is especially true in developing countries where there are major problems in the area of economic, cultural, and political development.
