Security is currently the most critical issue that is being talked about, examined and analyzed by wide range of experts and professionals in Ghana.
Personalities who used to be silient on national issues have added their voices, indicating that indeed, Ghana's security system is gradually getting worse under the leadership of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The advocacy roles being played by these concerned citizens are to a large extent strengthening the unity and solidarity we have as a country.
It appears that, with time, Ghana is moving from politicization of imperative national issues to speaking the fact is it is, without hesitation.
Most Ghanaians were heartily calmed when the Defense Minister, Hon. Dominic Nitiwul emphatically admitted in parliament that indeed, "there are currently some loopholes in the Ghanaian system that need a redress," following the Wa (brutalization) and Ejura (brutalization and killing) incidents.
The Majority Leader of Parliament, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu also confirmed such challenges in the system, and agreed with Haruna Iddrisu, that indeed, "enough is enough".
These statements need to be revisited for us know that clearly, majority of Ghanaians, including politicans (both NPP and NDC members/leaders), are concerned about our shaking state of national security.
All these voices pushed President Akufo-Addo to direct Hon. Ambrose Dery, Minister for Interior, who had earlier said that "Ghana is safe, go elsewhere and see what is going on," to set up a Committee of Public Inquiry to probe into the Ejura brutalization and killings.
In fact, Ghanaians are so expectant that this step will reveal the true cause of the incident, and as well sanction officers or people who faulted in the course of the incident, in accordance with the law.
Meanwhile, a ranking member of New Patriotic Party (NPP) Communication Team has dropped a very sensitive statement concerning our security situation.
During Citi TV's breakfast show on July 7, 2021, Lady Vera Wiredu emphatically indicated that she is in total disagreement with the fact that Ghana is in a state of insecurity.
She justified that for one to classify a country as insecure, it should have a number of troubling incidents (circumstances).
Lady Vera revealed that she has a ten-page examples of insecurity incidents that occurred during the era of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
She toed her argument towards a political path, which clearly indicates that she was missing the mark along the way.
"We cannot use one assassination incident (Kaaka's killing) to justify that Ghana is insecure," she declared.
Conclusively, Lady Vera Wiredu ridiculed her critics that "Ghana is sweet," in contrast to what has been echoed by many people in the country.
