Ghana’s Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, appeared before parliament today to answer questions about the leaked audio tape that allegedly revealed a plot to oust him ahead of the 2024 elections.
The leaked tape has caused a great deal of public concern and has raised questions about the integrity of the police force. Dampare’s appearance before parliament was an opportunity for him to address these concerns and to reassure the public that the police are committed to upholding the rule of law.
Dampare began his appearance by denying that there is any plot to remove him from office. He said that he is focused on his work and that he is not distracted by the leaked tape. He also said that he is confident that the police will be able to investigate the matter thoroughly and bring the perpetrators to justice.
Dampare then went on to answer questions from MPs about his performance as IGP. He spoke about his commitment to reform and his efforts to professionalize the police force. He also spoke about the challenges that the police face, such as crime, corruption, and lack of resources.
Overall, Dampare’s appearance before parliament was well-received. He was able to answer most of the MPs’ questions in a clear and concise manner. He also showed a willingness to engage with the MPs and to listen to their concerns.
However, some MPs expressed concern about the leaked tape and the IGP’s handling of the matter. One MP asked why Dampare has not yet suspended the officers involved in the alleged plot. Dampare responded that he is still gathering information and that he will take action once he has all the facts.
Another MP asked Dampare what he is doing to address the concerns of the public about police corruption. Dampare said that he is taking the issue very seriously and that he is working to implement new measures to combat corruption.
