The founding President and chief executive officer of IMANI Centre for Policy and Education, Franklin Cudjoe, has described the Inspector General of Police, Dr George Akuffo Dampare, as one of the “few excellent” appointments President Akufo-Addo has made so far in his administration.
In a post on Facebook, Mr Cudjoe urged the President to ignore those plotting to remove the police chief over his professionalism.
President, ignore those treasonable elements planning to oust the Inspector General of Police (IGP).
Much as we at IMANI would have wished the power to appoint the IGP should be taken away from your office and vested in a police electoral college, we say without equivocation that the current IGP is one of the very few excellent appointments you have made in seven years,” portions of the post read.
George Akuffo Dampare to continue with his exceptional effort and leadership to build the Ghana Police Service we want and deserve as a nation”
