- NDC man says, the NPP government has filled the security forces with party 'foot soldiers'
- According to Dr. Kpessah Whyte, 5,000 vigilante boys and girls have been sent to Asutsuare for training by the NPP
The former executive director of the National Service Scheme (NSS), Dr. Michael Kpessah Whyte says the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has pushed over 600 foot soldiers into the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) since coming into power in 2017.
According to him, the NPP also has some party faithfuls in the Ghana Immigration Service, Ghana National Fire Service, the Ghana Police Service and other forces.
“We [NDC] know of over 600 party activists that have been pushed into the BNI. We know that a lot of the vigilante boys and girls are being pushed into the police, into the security services across board,” he said, on TV3.
“Go and ask the BNI officials and find out whether they have not been virtually coerced into recruiting over 600 party boys and girls,” he added.
Dr. Kpessah Whyte, however, urged that the recruitment procedure into the forces be rigorous and a fair one.
The Justice Emile Short Commission revealed the over-politicization of the security services.
The hearing of the Commission revealed that most security personnel are pandering to political whims and caprices while others, better positioned to act, have been sidelined.
