Upon preparation toward 2020 general election, the Inspector General of Police, James oppong Boanuh has issued a statement in a press conference on the police preparedness.
Though Free and fair elections is a political responsibility each and every Ghanaian must contribute to, it is the security service that plays the major role.
As we prepare towards the general elections, global lenses will be focused on Ghana as we inaugurate leaders to manage the affairs of the country.
According to the IGP, the Ghana police service has realized that, stealing of ballot boxes, attacks on voters and officials and disrupting of voting materials is a major challenge all political parties and stakeholders should help curb.
Also, major stakeholders should desist from unnecessary confrontation with the police. He said demonstrations are decorated by laws, therefore, individuals are expected to follow these laws. Demonstrates should make an agreement with the police before sitting a root for their demonstration.
He added that, groups who overcrowd police station to get information of an arrested or invited individual should put a stop to it. Anybody who is not invited by the police to give clarity on issues or to make complaints should stay away from police stations. Overcrowding at police stations obstructs their work and it is unlawful to obstruct a police officer.
He ensured Ghanaians that, National elections security task force which includes all security agencies in Ghana are working tirelessly to ensure that the forth coming elections are conducted in a peaceful atmosphere.
