President Nana Akufo-Addo says the security agencies must be colour-blind when applying the law.
He said no individual should be favor on partisan line who caught with wrongdoing.
“The way in which the police service is acting now is the way in which I think the police should act, which is to be even-handed in the application of the law. Police and security agencies in the country should be colour-blind when it comes to enforcing the law. What I mean about colour-blind is politically colour-blind. The fact that there is an NPP government in place should not lead to a situation whereby if some NPP people are found to be involved in wrongdoing, somehow the police will turn their back on it. We saw that in the past and it doesn’t engender any good feeling in the country,” the President said.
He also stated if security personnel show no bias in executing their duties, the public will have confidence in them and he is more concerned about how the agencies will work freely.
“That should be the way in which the police and law enforcement agencies work; dispassionately, they look for clues and if it lands on the doorsteps of a Minister, MP in the Minority or Majority, they will go forward and act accordingly and not looking over their shoulder to decide whether or not what they are doing is a favour to those in office… If that happens consistently enough and people see that the law is even-handed in its application, it brings confidence,” he added.
President Nana Akufo-Addo made this known when he granted an interview on Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana on Thursday, October 29, 2020.
