Sulemana Braimah says the current police chief has played his part and wants the president to appoint a fresh IGP
Sulemana Barimah, the executive director of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) has called on the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to remove the Inspector General of Police (IGP), James Oppong-Boanuh.
His call follows recent upsurge in crime activities in some parts of the country with the latest being an attack on a bullion van at Adedenkpo, a suburb of James Town in Accra on Monday leaving a police guard and a trader dead.
The MFWA boss believes there are enough competent Commissioners of Police who could be appointed as IGP.
“The Ghana police service is a very professional institution. But why at all have we had a retired officer as IGP for close to two years? Why? None of the active COPs is competent enough to be appointed IGP?” he posted on Facebook.
Braimah added: “I am told that in the security services, there is something called MORALE and that when it goes down, all things go down. The retired man has done his part. It’s time for someone else to take over as IGP. Over to you, Mr. President.”
