Everyday with its good news but we can't predict to always confront good news daily. No matter how the situation we will definitely come across a bad news. There have been a breaking news all over Ghana this evening as a new IGP has been appointed. This must be a good news to Ghanaians but we have realized the appointment has delayed and the innocent man who was appointed this evening will have a lot of challenges in this new office as the Ghana IGP.
President Akufo-Addo announced the appointment of the Director-General in charge of Administration of the Ghana Police Service COP Dr. George Akuffo Dampare as new Inspector General of Police (IGP). It went viral that the New IGP Dr. George Akuffo Dampare will commence work as early as 1st to 4th August 2021. Here then comes our question. If Dr. George Akuffo Dampare is professional enough to handle the office as the IGP, why then do the government keep him waiting till this time as things are getting worse in Ghana in terms of insecurity issues?.
We still recall the recent incident which claimed the life of Constable Emmanuel Osei when he was to guard a Bullion van to it's destination. As a result of improper measures and other safety challenges, armed Robbers attack the Bullion Van and they killed Constable Emmanuel Osei like an animal in a cold blood. This is very sad to hear and yet the Government never appoint the new IGP as at that time to take over.
From there, we move to the terrible scene that took place in Ejura. Bullet's was released and life's were claimed. All these cases are clear indication that we need a new IGP. But the government was quite and as it stands now things are falling apart and the government is now appointing the innocent man to face these crises. Ghana is under pending Demostration and very soon demonstrators will strike.
Our main concern is why did the president not allow Former IGP James Oppong to face the wrath of the fix the country demonstrators and now that the demonstration will strike in August, they are now appointing the innocent man to meet the anger of the fix the country demonstrators. The president need to answer our questions for appointing the innocent man in the midst of these critical crises and not Even to talk about age of the former IGP James Oppong.
