The Chairman of the committee investigating the leaked tape documenting an alleged attempt to depose the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, Samuel Atta Akyea, has claimed that the committee has yet to conclude its findings.

He urged the public to ignore rumors that the report had been presented to the presidency.

Other parliamentary activities, as well as the committee’s dedication to ensuring justice, he noted on Citi FM, are to blame for the report’s delay.

Mr. Atta Akyea stated that after these obstacles are addressed, the report would be presented to the plenary.

“A lot of things have happened, and we don’t want to come and give excuses for why we are late in bringing the report. It is just about to be concluded, and then the committee will converge to look at it and ensure an understanding that nobody has been shortchanged before putting it before plenary. I do not know how anybody will say that the report is with the president, a report that the committee has not even reviewed” he said.

He further stated that the delay is not the consequence of suspected national security violations made during the investigation.

“There are no national security considerations at all because, at the end of the day, we had an in-camera hearing. We were able to distinguish what was important and what was not. The only thing I will say is that there have been a lot of intervening matters, including the budget. It is not easy to get all the members of the committee to converge on a matter of such significance because no chairman will want to bring a report that will be tagged a one-man report” he stated.

In July 2023, a leaked recording appeared exposing claimed government intentions to remove the Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, from office in order to rig the forthcoming December general elections.

Following that, a seven-member committee led by Samuel Atta Akyea was formed to investigate the contents of the tape.
