Interior minister inciting senior officers against police leadership – Toobu

Henry Quartey

Lawmaker Peter Toobu says utterances and actions of the Interior Minister Henry Quartey since he assumed the position are inciting senior Police officers against the Inspector-General of Police and the Police Management Board (POMAB)

According to him, the announcement by the Minister during his recent visit to the Police Headquarters that there is going to be a supplementary special recommendation list to the Police academy is unhealthy and “adding color” to Course 53.

“The Hon Minister is a walking contradiction. He warned social media trolls not to incite with their statement and actions, at the same meeting at the Police headquarters the minister said ‘m I have told the IGP we shall compile a supplementary special recommendation list to the Police academy’, the Minister has no law or policy backing his statement,” the MP wrote on Facebook Friday.

He added: “The Minister only succeeded in inciting Chief Inspectors and Inspectors against the Police administration”.

The Interior Minister upon assumption of office unilaterally called for the suspension of Course 53 when the necessary procedures had been activated to get the officers selected for the programme.
