Government Reacts To Rumours That It Plans To Remove IGP Dampare Ahead Of 2024 Elections

The government has rejected allegations that the Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, is at risk of being dismissed ahead of the 2024 elections. Claims circulating online, based on a leaked recording, suggest that Dr. Dampare is being targeted due to his strictness and his commitment to preventing election rigging.

GHone TV shared a tweet containing the purported recording, in which the retiring police commissioner allegedly advises an NPP politician that winning the upcoming general election would be unlikely as long as the current IGP remains in his position. Commissioner Mensa, in an attempt to gain favor with the politician, highlights the IGP’s robust security measures during the recent Assin North by-election. He promises to continue providing the same level of protection and pledges to go even further, if necessary, to prevent the NPP from engaging in electoral fraud in 2024.

Responding to the leaked recording, the Minister of Interior, Ambrose Dery, has refuted the accusations. During a news conference held in Parliament on July 11, 2023, he urged the public to disregard the claims.

He denied that such a plot existed against the Inspector General of Police and emphasized the need to protect the police force’s credibility and impartiality throughout the electoral process by saying, “Tapes will be useful if they relate to a crime, but otherwise No. But I haven’t made that determination about whether this is criminal or not. Let me make it clear that this government is not going to tamper with the 2024 elections. The president does not want to stay one more hour beyond his term. We also want to make sure that we have a free and fair election.”
