The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) triumph in the general elections of 2024, according to Bernard Antwi Boasiako, Chairman of the Ashanti Region, is not reliant on Dr. George Akufo Dampare, Inspector General of Police.

He claims that the NPP’s track record and election-related messaging will enable them to ‘break the 8’.

“Dampare cannot stop NPP from breaking the 8. He cannot, it’s not true. We will not let NDC come into power. Dampare has just one vote and the rest of us have same,” he said on Accra-based Neat FM.

According to Chairman Wontumi, as he is known, there is an internal issue with the Police Service as shown by the investigations into the widely circulated leaked audio to remove the IGP.

“IGP Dampare has been in the Police Service for many years. NPP made him IGP. I supported his bid ahead of Kofi Boakye. I can boldly say NPP’s NEC, which I’m a member has not held any meeting to remove him and I don’t think the President will seek NPP’s counsel to relieve him of his duties. It’s an internal problem within the police so he should go and solve it” he stressed.

Chairman Wontumi prayed for God to strengthen IGP and help him do his job effectively.

Additionally, the Ghana Police Service’s Director General Technical, Commissioner of Police (COP) Alex George Mensah, Superintendents George Lysander Asare and Emmanuel Gyebi have all been detained for their suspected roles in the recording that was released.
