The Brong Ahafo Regional Youth Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwame Baffoe ‘Abronye DC’ has appealed to the President to immediately remove the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante-Apeatu, from office.
According to him, his appointments, ever since he took office, have brought the service into disrepute and therefore deserves to be shown the exit as soon as possible.

“IGP should start running from his office because he is not needed at this moment at all. His conduct and appointment has rather worsen issues in the service. I’ve never approved of his appointment day one [sic] and will never be happy and so he should pack and leave office or Nana Addo should sack him because his contract has ended”, he said.

Abronye DC was speaking to Philip Osei Bonsu on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen following the increased crime rates in the country.
This week has seen a number of robbery incidents in Accra, one on a Forex Bureaux at Spintex and two daylight robberies in the North Kaneshie area.

Also on Tuesday morning, armed men stormed Royal Motors, an automobile company in Accra, making away with the company’s sales.
On Wednesday, a Lebanese worker with Delta Agro, a plastics manufacturing firm in Tema, was shot dead by robbers and his G200, 000 stolen after he had withdrawn the money from a Zenith Bank branch in the Tema Heavy Industrial area to pay workers.

But Abronye DC argued that the security situation in the country has worsened under the watch of Mr. Asante-Apeatu as he seems to be doing little to address the problem.
“Ghanaians and even some [service] personnel are not happy about how Mr. Asante-Apeatu discharges his duties and trust me, they all need him out of office and so he should leave now”, he said.
He however asked the President to make better use of “no nonsense” Police Commissioner, Kofi Boakye and COP Tetteh Yohuno by tasking them to lead the fight against armed robbery which has been on the ascendancy in the past few days.
