Security analyst Adib Saani has slammed the Minister for Interior, Ambrose Dery, for his response to a leakage tape of an alleged plot to remove the Inspector General of Police Dr George Akuffo Dampare.
According to Adib, his initial assessment of the tape shows that it is more authentic than fake, and he can identify at least one of the voices in the tape whose name he withheld.
Speaking in an interview with GhanaWeb, on July 12, 2023, the security analyst said that the statements made on the tape are very serious, and should be taken more seriously by the minister for interior.
“What I heard on the tape is very disturbing. It has destabilising effects and it is incendiary in nature hence the need to look closely at it.
“And I’m particularly disappointed with the minister of interior who is seeking to bastardize it and just rubbish it. But the comment in the tape is serious and it could have ramifications on the peace and security of the country going into the country next year,” he said.
The security analyst further stated that the leaked tape should be taken more seriously because some stakeholders in the 2024 elections are already alleging foul play which is confirmed by statements made in it (the tape).
He advised that the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo government should as soon as possible commence an investigation into the matter.
“What I am calling for is an investigation into the matter to establish the authenticity of the tape; to establish the person behind those voices in the tape; to establish whether indeed there is some form of criminal culpability by anyone and the necessary actions would be taken. It is completely shocking that some are seeking to bastardise this,” he said.
He added that his checks that the Ghana Police Service show that no action is being taken on the leaked tape which is very worrying.
