Former Chief of the Defence Staff of the Ghana Armed Forces, Brigadier-General Joseph Nunoo-Mensah (Rtd), has appealed to the government to be responsive to the needs of the citizens.
‘’Because the ordinary people who voted for the government to come to power are the shareholders of the country and they own Ghana ‘’ he stated.
Speaking on Freedom Radio’s ‘’Yen Man’’ show hosted by Kwaku Aboagye Apenteng on the recent robbery incidents, he expressed worry about the bullion van robbery at JamesTown, that claimed the life of a police officer and another civilian.
The Former National Security Advisor, advised the government to assemble the best and experienced brains in the security space and other relevant stakeholders to deliberate on finding possible solutions to security issues in the country , indicating that where the country was moving to is very dangerous.
He indicated that the country’s inability to control its borders, therefore, allowing the influx of all manner of people into the country have contributed to such insecurities ,because most of the neighbouring countries with their various problems dump them on Ghana, due to unsecured borders.
Brigadier-General Nunoo-Mensah, noted there were numerous causes of robberies in the country and therefore, the President and Ministers ought to sit upright and work hard to ensure sustainable peace in the country.
Adding that, if one is elected as a leader or appointed as a minister then there were a lot of responsibilities on such persons, because there was lots of work to be done.
In responding to people blaming the IGP, he said much of the blame should not be put on the IGP, Chief of Defence Staff, Security coordinator, because sometimes they are sometimes restricted in discharging their duties.
