Regarding the recent attacks and killings in some parts of the country , it is very difficult to tell whether indeed the Security Minister is on the grounds .
Security analyst, Adam Bona has said that, the President’s decision to maintain Minister of National Security, Albert Kan Dapaaah, is an omen of worse things to befall the country as long as security is considered.
According to him, the government has failed Ghana in the area of security , stressing that “whoever advised the President Nana Addo to re-appoint Kan Dapaah has done the entire country a great disservice.”
Few days ago , there was sad sad incident in the Eastern region, where an ambulance driver who was transporting a pregnant woman to the regional capital was attacked, and shot to death.
So far, three officers have committed suicide with one declaring he was fed up with the world.
It is not clear, if the top hierarchy of the service, have put in place any guidance and counselling mechanisms for the officers and men of the service.
Some of them had in recent times, taken issues with the government keeping retired senior officers in active service and promoting them, although they had retired and were supposed to go home. They argued that this has stifled the careers of many junior officers.
The latest policeman to kill himself is a 50-year old officer with Ashaiman Court Unit, Deputy Superintendent of Police, Divine Yao Asiam.
He shot himself in his residence at Tema Community 18, Bortiman but did not die immediately.
Reports say, DSP Asiam, passed on at the Police Hospital in the early hours of Valentine’s day.
Reacting to all the above, the Security Analyst stated that, more of these sad incidence are going to occur because Kan Dapaah cannot do the job assigned him as Security Minister.
“The security threat in the country is going to get worse. When have you heard that an ambulance has been attacked ? And now the police are killing themselves.”
Speaking on New-Day on TV3 , Mr Adam Bona mentioned that, people like Addo Kuffour, Seth Akyeampong, Henry Quartey , and some other greats within the ruling government could have fit and done the work better than Kan Dapaah.
