Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, the Inspector-General of Police, says the security services will make sure that the 2024 elections are incident-free and tranquil.
The IGP claims that elections in the nation will be peaceful in 2024, just as they have been since he took office.
At the Police headquarters, Dr. Akuffo Dampare gave a speech to the national election security task force. He also gave the head of the Electoral Commission an assurance that all those participating in the polls would be safe.
“We want to assure my sister (EC Chairperson) that we will continue to work with my colleagues here to ensure that just as elections in the country since I took over have been peaceful, the 2024 polls will be the same.”
Vice Admiral Seth Amoama, the Chief of Defense Staff, stated that the Ghanaian Armed Forces will be available to support the police and other security agencies providing background protection for the 2024 elections.
“We in the Armed Forces commit to our constitutionally mandated duty to protect this country and prevent any aggression from outside the country and also from within and we do so by air, by sea and by land, and even do at the peril of our lives”.
On the 2024 elections, the CDS noted “For the election proper we may not be in the upfront of election duties but we will be in the background to support you the Police Service and other security services. The Armed Forces is ready to act accordingly when we are called upon but for the election duties proper I will leave it to the security services to be in the forefront. We will always be in the background to act appropriately when we are called upon”.
