Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe, one of the leading founders of the New Patriotic Party has raised concerns about the state of insecurity in the nation with reference to current developments and described the scenario as “disturbing”.
Talking in an interview on Class91.3 FM’s Executive Breakfast Program (EBS), Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe pointed out the murder of the abducted Takoradi girls, Ahmed Suale, an Investigative Journalist, MPs J.B. Danquah-Adu Jr. and Ekow Hayford; and the disturbances in the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election as circumstances has shown how bad the country’s security has been jeopardized and if care is not taken the country will be taken unaware.
“I have, in almost all my interviews, and they are quite a lot, cautioned the political class of this country that if they don’t sit up, they will be taken unawares. I’ve said it time and again on numerous occasions. What is happening now is a bit disturbing. When you have a system where the police appear to be ineffective, it is a bit disturbing to anyone at all,” he stated.
Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe stressed that there is an issue with nationwide security in the nation.
“Having listed all these points, it comes out clearly that we have a problem with our national security setup; there’s no doubt about it. You ask yourself: how are they really manning the national security of this country?” he questioned.
On the murder of the Mfantseman Member of Parliament (MP), Mr Ekow Hayford, Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe said there’s a need to look out the root cause of the matter and he does not see the lawmaker’s death as a case of armed robbery.
Mr Hayford was shot dead by supposed armed robbers on Friday dawn when he was returning from a campaign tour.
Dr Nyaho-Tamakloe likewise intimated that safety and security in the state need to be the topmost top priority of MPs instead of them requiring state defense.
“I’m even surprised that such suggestions should come from MPs. I’m surprised. The core problem has to be looked at. MPs need to put the security of the state top of their agenda. That’s number one. Then find out why these things are going on,”” he noted.
