The National Organizer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) has slammed the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) Boss, COP Maame Tiwaa Addo Danquah saying the latter has lost credibility as a result of government direct manipulation.
Akamba claimed the hitherto effective Police Officer[Tiwaa Addo Danquah] has lost her fine credentials to dirty politics under the current government.
“This woman has been a professional Police officer until the assumption of power of Nana Akufo-Addo, now her credibility is all gone. I have known her to be a professional police officer due to politics the woman is sharply losing her credibility;somebody who has gone to the highest of Police ranking[COP], Director-General,CID and all too sudden the woman is losing her credibility,” an emotionally charged Joshua Akamba told Kasapa 102.5 FM in an interview on Wednesday.
The largest opposition NDC believes the CID Boss is being used by the Akufo-Addo-led government just to cripple the NDC front ahead of the 2020 elections.
This according to the NDC is evident in the attempt to intimidate Mr Ofosu Ampofo at all cost vis a vis his pending case over the recent spate of kidnappings and fire outbreaks in the country.
But speaking on Anopa Kaspa on Kasapa 102.5 FM, Joshua Akamba said the Police CID and government should focus on arresting the worsening security situation in the country instead of chasing one political leader who’s harmless.
“While you have to focus on dealing with the issue of kidnappers and dealing with fire and other things, you’re chasing one political leader, meanwhile the thing is happening on the grounds. As I’m talking to you now, are you aware there is self-imposed curfew in this country? I know Journalists who have gone into hiding now under this administration. What kind of tension is happening in this country,” Akamba questioned.
Meanwhile,the National Chairman of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has been granted bail after his arrest by the Police Tuesday.
He’s billed to report to Police CID again on Thursday, June 13, 2019.
