"COP Alex Mensah should be monitored carefully even in his retirement" - Yaw Asani Tano
Political Analyst, Yaw Asani Tano has called for a careful monitoring of the Director-General of the Ghana Police Service, COP Alex Mensah even in his retirement following his involvement in a leaked tape aimed at ousting the current Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare.
According to Yaw Asani Tano, the demeanor and countenance of the Director-General of the Ghana Police Service depicts that of a right troop for a coup d'état in the country.
Speaking on an Accra-based television station, he said "When you look at the demeanor and envisage the bitterness in COP Alex Mensah, I fear for this country. If I had the power, I would retire COP Alex Mensah even if he had only two seconds left in the police service"
Mr. Tano added that per the demeanor of COP Alex Mensah, there are some undercurrents in the police service which are against the leadership of the current IGP.
"Such people per their demeanor, are a threat. We should not think that it is only the military that loves coup, some police officers are also interested and this is a perfect example of undercurrent against the Dr. Dampare administration"
"We have seen a dynamic and quick change in terms of the reforms of the Police administration under this current IGP"
"We want to see a new IGP who can beat the current record of Dr. Dampare, but for people to gang against him and say he is not doing the work in their favour or in a way they like, and for that matter, he is not correct and must be removed, it beats my imagination"
The Political Analyst further appealed to the former Northern Regional Minister, Bugari Naabu to come out and respond to the alleged doctored portions of the leaked tape.
