Kwesi Annin: Paul Quaye is the best thing to have happened to Ghana police

first_imgThe Ghana Police Service under Paul Tawiah Quaye has been more responsive to the security challenges of Ghana, a security analyst has said.“The IGP and his team are actually beginning to shape and to change an embedded institutional culture in which the police attempted to but was terribly unresponsive until now, Dr. Kwasi Anning told Joy News’ Bernard Saibu.Dr Annin was responding to calls by the Alliance for Accountable Governance for the resignation of the IGP who they alleged was failing to secure the lives of citizens.He said part of the challenges which culminated in the demands for his resignation is only a reflection of a long term institutional decay in which multiple governments over time were unable or unwilling to train the police.According to him there is a “qualitative change” in the operations of the police under Paul Tawiah Quaye and must be given the room to operate.He said the IGP must not be blamed for the security lapses in the Atiwa election. If anything, the political parties and the security personnel in charge must be blamed for the pockets of violence at Atiwa. Dr Kwasi Anning said demands for the resignation of the IGP is only a reflection of the heated political tension in the country, demands he considers are illegitimate.Story by Nathan Gadugah/
