- Former president John Mahama has advised the government to adequately resource security agencies in Ghana
- This, he said, was better, compared to creating new agencies
- This comes after plans to establish a new security agency to collect intelligence became public
Former president John Dramani Mahama has called for an increase in resources for security agencies in Ghana.
According to him, this would help achieve more results in comparison to setting up an entirely new security agency.
His comments follow reports to the effect that the government intends to set up a new security agency that would be focused on gathering intelligence in Ghana.
In his opinion, a decision to resource and empower the existing institutions would go a long way to help achieving the objective.
Per a report by Citinewsroom.com, he added, “aside from that, there must be fusion and synthetisation of the work of these agencies.”
President Nana Akufo-Addo, in May 2019, indicated that processes had begun to improve on the intelligence-gathering capabilities of the Ghana Police Service, as well as other security agencies.
At a meeting with the Council of Independent Churches (CIC), he said the government had “begun the reorganisation of some of the security agencies to enhance the intelligence-gathering capacity of the state.”
