The Ghana Police Service has been accused by certain senior members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of degrading the state security service while pretending to offer medical outreach services to specific communities in the Assin North Constituency.
Stan Dogbe, a former director of communications at the Presidency, finds it alarming that some senior police officers are openly running for government.
He wrote, “Shocking! Ghanaian government organisations are being treated poorly.
Evidence of what the Ghana Police force has been doing in the Assin North Constituency in the lead-up to the June 27 by-election is that the force has been managing free health clinics on behalf of the ruling NPP, with open and overt political campaigning by its partisan top officers.
Although the area is multilingual, a police officer is heard directing the staff to speak just Akan Twi and no other language. Akufo-Addo’s Ghana is in power. For the sake of tomorrow, save that video and the woman in it.
As part of a security tour in front of the approaching Assin North by-election, the Ghana Police Service earlier this week stated it will begin a week-long medical outreach programme inside the community.
Among the villages that have benefited are Assin Kushea, Assin Achiano, and Assin Anhweasu. A team from the Police Hospital is in charge of these areas, and it is led by DCOP Dr. Samuel Otu-Nyarko.
