Dr. George Akufo Dampare, the Inspector General of Police, has forcefully refuted claims that he meets with former President John Dramani Mahama.

Dr. Dampare stressed the role of a police officer in providing services to the public while speaking before the parliamentary committee looking into the leaked audio. He also noted that former President Mahama is a member of the Ghanaian populace to whom he would willingly offer service if necessary.

Mr. Mahama and the Inspector General of Police allegedly had private meetings, according to one of the policemen on the leaked video.

However, Dr. Dampare denied seeing the former President when questioned by a parliamentary committee.

“I don’t visit former President John Dramani Mahama, and he doesn’t visit me. I’m a professional police officer, we are servants of the people, including the former President. Whoever is involved, as long as there is a police service to be provided, I have a constitutional duty and responsibility to get it done” he explained.

The IGP declared, “I’m a policeman who is not into politics. I’m not into politics, I’m a professional police officer, and I don’t do such things.”

Dr. Dampare responded to a question concerning his interactions with the previous president by saying, “The position of Inspector General of Police, and by extension, every police officer, is to serve the good people of this country, of which the former President is one of those and there’s nothing wrong with that.”
