How national operatives will conduct themselves on election day will be the ultimate for Nana- Totobi Quakyi

Former Minister of National Security, Kofi Totobi Quakyi has said that the conduct of national security operatives on December 7 will be the ultimate test of the President’s regret in connection with the assault of a soldier.

Responding to the Information Minister’s statement on behalf of President Nana Akufo-Addo, Mr Quakyi said “I have read a statement issued on behalf of His Excellency President Akufo-Addo by the Minister of Information expressing regret about the recent assault of a serving officer of the Ghana Armed Forces by national security operatives under the command of an officer of the Bureau of National Communications”.

“The mention of national security operatives evokes bitter memories of their complicity in the violence unleashed on fellow citizens during the infamous Ayawaso West Wugon by-elections.”

He also indicated that “a duly-constituted commission of inquiry”, the Emile Short Commission, that probed “the violence” at Ayawaso West Wuogon, “made specific recommendations on actions that must be taken to serve as deterrence against such wanton acts of indiscipline by party militia clothed as national security operatives or what have you”.

“Sadly, the recommendations of the commission were set aside by the President. The recent exploits by national security operatives in attacking and humiliating a senior non-commissioned officer in the full glare of the public, is reminiscent of a group that feels justified and emboldened”

Mr Quakyi further stated that “already, there is pervasive anxiety among Ghanaians, as we inch closer to the December 7 polls”, and, so, pointed out that the prevailing “anxiety is being fueled by the recent assault on the military officer by members from the same group, whose lawless actions have, in the past, gone unpunished.”
