Plot to remove IGP: Dampare to appear before committee on September 12



Chairman of the ad-hoc committee probing the leaked plot to remove IGP, Samuel Atta Akyea has revealed the Committee has invited Dr George Akuffo Dampare to appear before it on Tuesday, September 12.

According to Mr Atta Akyea, the essence of this invitation is to grant the IGP an opportunity for his side of the story to be heard by the Committee as grave allegations are being levelled against him.

The Chairman stated in an interview on JoyNews’ The Probe, “On Tuesday, all the individuals (Chief Daniel Bugri Naabu, Supt. George L. Asare, (COP) George Alex Mensah, and Supt. Emmanuel Eric Gyebi) … will come back with their lawyers.

Also, the most prominent person whose name has been bandied about, the IGP himself should also come with his lawyers.”

He emphasised this hearing would be done in-camera, explaining that there were issues in the hearing that needed to be prevented from coming out in the public to protect national security.

“Some serious allegations have been made in public, but the substance of the allegations has not been made in public. That is to say, the evidential support for those allegations is what we are going to unearth, so which piece of evidence that we’ll give to the public that will not hurt national security, we’ll exercise that discretion,” he added.

Furthermore, the Chairman of the Committee clarified that the forum was not being held with the intention of appointing an IGP, nor did the Committee have a malicious intention to ruin his reputation.

Rather, he reiterated that the Committee will not allow for “the IGP to be disgraced and insulted without giving him a hearing.”

Mr Akyea also emphasised that allowing the IGP an opportunity to clear his name is the democratic way to address the issue at hand.

Addressing the question of the duration after which the hearing will be allowed to be made public, the Chairman answered, “Well, maybe let’s give ourselves about three hours of a shut out.”

He added, “I think when it’s necessary for the public to come into the space, why not? But when it is frightening that what is ongoing is not good for national security, then we have to shut the public out.”

The Chairman stated he was confident the IGP would not turn down the invitation extended to him by the Committee.

“I don’t believe it will come there; that the IGP will say that ‘I am not going to come to Parliament,’ when he has a whole opportunity to hallow his name.”

Adwoa Safo faces backlash after personally serving her constituents yoghurt



The Member of Parliament for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo, is trending on Twitter, following an act of service.

The MP was seen personally handing out yoghurt on a tray to her constituents at a recent event.

This comes after she rendered an unqualified apology to the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), especially the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and other party officials.

Military takeovers not the solution to Africa’s economic challenges – Asantehene



The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, has expressed deep concern over the increasing spate of coup d’états occurring on the African continent.

He attributes these military takeovers to the challenging economic conditions faced by nations, leading to the ousting of democratically elected governments.

Addressing the St. Andrews Africa Summit in Scotland, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II vehemently opposed the notion of military coups as a solution to Africa’s problems. He emphasized that regardless of the circumstances, he firmly believes that military takeovers are not the answer.

“Let me make it categorically clear that regardless of the circumstances, I do not think that a military takeover offers the solution to the problems of our continent. There was a time when circumstances produced the notion that the gun was the solution, those times are over.

“We are in completely different circumstances now. The critical problems confronting Africans’ economy from North to South, East to West, the burden is the economy,” the Asantehene said.

several African countries have experienced coups in recent years, with notable instances in Niger and Gabon.

The most recent incident occurred in Gabon when military officers took control on August 30, announcing the annulment of election results that declared President Ali Bongo the winner.

The electoral commission’s declaration had sparked allegations of fraud by the opposition.

40 Chief Inspectors sue IGP over promotions 



Forty (40) Chief Inspectors in the Ghana Police Service have sued the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr George Akuffo Dampare, over what they describe as the unjustifiable refusal of the service to promote them.

In a writ filed at the Kumasi High Court, the Police Officers claim they have been excluded from a series of promotions prompted by the Service to grant special amnesty to police officers who had obtained degrees before 2020 after they were enrolled into the service.

The Officers say despite serving between 25 to 30 years, the Police administration has promoted their junior colleagues under the same amnesty but refused to grant them entry to the Police Academy to facilitate their promotions to Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP).

The 40 plaintiffs are therefore praying the court to order the IGP to grant them direct access to the Police Academy and further restore their loss of income following the failure to promote them.

The IGP and some three senior police officers are before a parliamentary committee probing a leaked tape on which the police officers are heard plotting his removal.

Both the IGP and his accusers have already appeared before the committee.

The committee which is on a break is set to resume sitting on October 2 2023.
