Still on Mr. Peter Nanfuri as the IGP, we are told he could pick a phone and call almighty J. J Rawlings and tell him to control his ministers else he will arrest them and if you try dare him too, he will have you arrested.
If indeed this is true, then Mr. Peter Nanfuri does not have only balls but steel balls. Very hard balls that does not get softened by political pressure.
In these times of over politicisation of the police service, can you tell your president who appointed you as the IGP to control his ministers.
Who born dog? Even party foot soldiers are dismissing police officers let alone to talk about president and his ministers.
As violent crime threatens national peace and security, I salute the following IGPs with nostalgia; Naa Ansoley Gana II (Mr. Peter T Nanfuri). He defended the principle that says officers morale is inversely related to crimerate . He led by example. His name resonates confidence.
Mr. Mohammed A Alhassan. A task-oriented man of integrity who believed in the use of Police Visibility to manage crime. He kicked out 50% of personnel from offices onto the streets to support Patrols.
He believed in having a Service anchored on 3 major pillars; Patrol, Traffic & Investigation with not more than 10% of total strength as Administrative staff.
Mr. David Asante-Apeatu.
He believed in sharpening the human skills of commanders to promote Citizen-friendly Policing. He saw the need for reforms to create a democratic police institution and went further to launched the Police Transformation Agenda. He has unparallel human skills.
One common trait that runs through the three Police Chiefs, is their unwillingness to bend the rules on recruitment. If they are unpopular in any corner, this could be the latent reason. It was however to ensure that police professionalism is sustained.
The gallant officers of the Ghana Police Service (both active and retired) hold you in high esteem.
Today, it seems most of the top commissioners are either not capable to act in full command or else they will be politically tagged. Well, these commissioners have been asked to proceed on leave to pension.
They were pulled out and this was revealed by captain Smart.
