Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

IGP to appear before Defense and Interior Committee of Parliament

Inspector General of Police (IGP) Mohammed Ahmed Alhassan is expected to appear before the Parliamentary Select Committee of Defense and Interior to brief the committee on police preparations for maintaining the peace after the Supreme Court’s verdict on August 15, 2013.

The Supreme Court just finish taking evidence in the Presidential Election Petition filed by the NPP 2012 Flag bearer Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, his running mate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and party Chairman Jake Otanka Obetsebi Lamptey. 

The petitioners are challenging the authenticity of the election results used by the Electoral Commission to declare John Dramani Mahama President of the country.

Some pundits have said whatever the outcome of the case, the country would never be the same; whatever that means. Meanwhile, some men of God have given prophecies to the effect that, but for much prayer, the country could face grave instability after the verdict. 

Chairman of the Parliamentary Select Committee on Defense and Interior, George Kofi Arthur told Adom News the committee had already met with the Minister of the Interior on the preparedness of the various security agencies for the verdict. 

“The committee met with the Minister of Interior but this meeting is to enable the IGP tell us general preparations towards the delivery of the verdict,” he said. 

He added that the IGP will be required to give the level and status of peace in the country currently and how peace will be maintained after the verdict is delivered.

“The IGP told the Committee earlier that they have had to suspend major activities like recruiting new officers all in a bid to prepare for the verdict,” he said

According to him, the court case is preventing investors from investing in Ghana, adding that it is the Committee’s responsibility to ensure that the peace being enjoyed in the country is solid as ever.

Hon. George Arthur told Adom News that the Committee will endeavor to block all the lapses together with the police.
