First Vice Chairperson of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP), Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim, says the Inspector General of Police (IGP), David Asante-Apeatu is “naked”.
Hajia Hamdatu alleged that, some senior police officers eyeing the position are sabotaging the IGP.
“IGP Asante-Apeatu is not going anywhere so those sabotaging him in the police service must stop”, she fumed.

The Police chief is in hot waters following the wave of robbery attacks sweeping through the capital.
Many including the Minority in Parliament say the IGP has lost focus, noting that the seeming confidence of the robbers, especially in Accra and Tema shows how security has broken down in the country.
The only solution, the Minority suggests is for the IGP, Asante-Apeatu to resign since in their opinion, he has no business being in office in the face of the heightened crimes.

But in defense, Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem, said calls for the IGP to be sacked are being fueled by his own people.
She explained that, some embittered police chiefs are creating the insecurity in the country to make the IGP “unpopular”.
“Let me tell them: the IGP is going nowhere. He is a fine gentleman acknowledged internationally as a good police officer so support him to work”, the CPP Vice Chairperson opined.

Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim maintained that, until the police bring all hands on deck, the country’s security will be porous even if the current IGP is sacked.
She also chided the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for seeking to score cheap political points with such a volatile issue.
“The robbery incidence in the country is too serious so let’s not politicize it. The NDC and NPP must stop interfering in police work and allow the security agencies to work” she added.

Hajia Hamdatu also cautioned the media to be circumspect when discussing security issues in order not to give leads to criminals.
