It was an intriguing discussion on Metro TV’s ‘Good Morning Ghana’ when Abdul Malik Kweku Baako and Felix Kwakye Ofosu joined Randy Abbey to discuss police and soldier recruitments into sensitive positions. According to Felix Kwakye, the Akufo-Addo government is becoming too unpopular with ragged recruitments into the police and military.
Felix explained that these untrained military or police personnel have committed so may crimes and yet left to chance. He wondered if the military who stormed and killed 2 inhabitants of Ejura were properly trained. Kweku Baako however rebutted and maintained that this was not only peculiar to Akufo-Addo’s government. He added that he had evidence to prove that this happens under many governments including the NDC government. He noted that during the erstwhile NDC government there were instances where untrained people were recruited into security positions
“The President has acted and has asked for an enquiry. Whether we like it or not that is the right thing. For Felix to say that party foot soldiers and party activists being integrated into security positions is peculiar to Akufo-Addo’s administration is serious. It has been with us all the time. Each administration that comes. There are documents to prove that. I brought some here, pictures to prove this. These are people I know.
There were some who were relocated to Akpelenkpe and they were complaining that they were party foot soldiers who were given military training on how to shoot. For what purpose? They were NDC party people. As a Ghanaian I think it is a phenomenon that is negative. It is not peculiar to only the Akufo-Addo administration” Mr. Baako said
