Amidst mounting nonviolent opposition of the SMC government run by Ignatius Kutu Acheampong, discussions of the country's political future had begun. A committee was set up by the Supreme Military Council in January 1977 to consider a "Union Government" proposal. Dr. Gustav Koranteng-Addow had toured the length and breadth of the country to collate views from the people on the Union government idea proposed by Acheampong. A report was presented on 4 October 1977 by the seventeen-member ad hoc committee appointed by the government and chaired by Dr. Gustav Koranteng-Addow. The report recommended an executive president selected by adult suffrage from a list presented by an electoral college. It also suggested a 140-member legislature of candidates who would run as independents without connection to a political party. In its report the committee said the predominant wish of the people was the establishment of a national government in a no party state. On 30 March 1978 a referendum was held on the choice of system of government. The results of the referendum saw an overwhelming support for the union government as those in favour of union government accounted for a little over 60% of the registered voters that voted. However, continuous strikes by professional groups and student bodies led to the overthrow of Ignatius Kutu Acheampong on July 1978. Following the overthrow of Ignatius Kutu Acheampong by fellow SMC member Fred Akuffo, Dr. Gustav Koranteng-Addow was relieved of his duty as Attorney General of Ghana following his criticisms of the ruling Supreme Military Council's plan to return the country to party politics that year.

In 1968, he received a grant for a fellowship under a British Technical Assistance Programme from the Ministry of Overseas development to research into Customary Arbitration at the School of Oriental and African Studies, London. He earned his doctorate and returned to Ghana to resume work on the bench. On 9 October 1975 he was appointed Attorney General of Ghana.
