Dr. Dampare emphasized that the evidence is readily available for anyone to examine and form their own judgment.
COP George Alex Mensah, who serves as the Director-General of Operations for the Ghana Police Service, made his remarks during his appearance before the ad-hoc committee investigating a leaked audio on Friday, September 1.
He asserted that Dr. Akuffo Dampare, in his current role as IGP, is the least competent individual to have ever held that position in the country’s history.
In his assessment, COP Mensah believed that, under Dr. Dampare’s leadership, the police administration was headed in the wrong direction.
“Honourable member and honourable chair, several opportunities and what I said yesterday if you give me the opportunity today, I will say it again. For me, for the 31 years I have been in the service, he is the worst IGP ever,” he said.
However, during his appearance before the committee on Tuesday, September 12, Dr. Akuffo Dampare strongly refuted COP Alex Mensah’s assertion.
Dr. Dampare suggested that perhaps COP Mensah had intended to express the opposite viewpoint.
“Perhaps my brother wanted to say I’m the best IGP but missed it. The records are there for everyone to see. It is not true my administration is the worst. He missed it. It can never be true that my administration is the work.”
“Is unfounded and it is baseless. I think the person the person could have done if he had nothing to say is to keep quiet,” he said.
