The Minister of State-in-charge of National Security, Bryan Acheampong has revealed that Ghana doesn’t have a security problem but a political problem.
According to him, the politicization of security issues ends up painting seemingly minor issues as if they were major security threats.
Acheampong made the remark on the back of concerns raised by members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) over the invitation of their National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo by the Police.
“We don’t have a security situation in this country, we have a political problem. That is the problem we have. And everybody tries to politicize any minor or major security issues. When we are supposed to deal with crime as crime, we take a political stand,” Acheampong argued.
Ofosu Ampofo is being investigated over the recent kidnapping and arson cases in the country.
His woes begun when he was heard in a leaked audio allegedly inciting members of his party to descend on some personalities in the country. There was also mention of kidnappings in the said leaked audio.
But members of the NDC believe government is unnecessarily hounding their national chairman.
