NDC alleges plot to remove IGP for election rigging, issues warning

The National Democratic Congress (NDC), an opposition party, has strongly warned against any attempt to unseat Dr. George Akuffo Dampare as Inspector General of Police.

This is in response to rumors that the IGP was instructed to take an enforced leave of absence and delegate his responsibilities to his deputy, Christian Tetteh Yohuno, who is purportedly connected to the incident with the leaked tapes from 2023.

The IGP's continued commitment to heading the police following President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo's orders has been reaffirmed by the Ghana Police Service, which has denied these reports.

Notwithstanding these guarantees, the NDC is unconvinced, questioning the police service's justification and raising doubts about a potential attempt to unseat the IGP as part of a larger plot to influence the general election scheduled for December.

Deputy Secretary of the NDC, Mustapha Gbande, voiced these concerns in a media interview on Sunday, June 30.

He accused President Akufo-Addo of being irresponsible and prioritizing personal interests over national welfare.

Mr Gbande emphasised that the NDC will not tolerate any attempts to undermine the country’s democratic processes.

He called for vigilance and resistance against any actions that could compromise the integrity of the December elections.

“We can assure President Akufo-Addo that any attempt to rig the 2024 election will be resisted by the strength and might of the National Democratic Congress without any regret. There is nothing that will prevail over the will of the people.

“So, if this whole hullabaloo of trying to remove the IGP is about the election, President Akufo-Addo should review his mind and go home as a former president, at least in the minds of Ghanaians, he has made some appointments in the interest of Ghanaians.”

“IGP since he assumed his office, at least if you see the reformation of the Ghana Police Service, you see some seriousness. I have been arrested on several occasions by the police. You see some level of discipline, even in terms of the appearance of police personnel.

It boosts the image of our country and not the NPP and not President Akufo-Addo. It is not about him, the president, it’s about the country.”

“We have pampered President Akufo-Addo into becoming an irresponsible president and it’s high time we say it in his face that he cannot think it’s about him all the time,” he said.
