Mr John Kudalor, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) has accepted maverick politician and NPP member Kennedy Agyapong's apology over the insults meted out to him last Tuesday in a politics-related discussion on an Accra-based TV station.
The Public Affairs director of the Ghana Police Service, Superintendent Cephas Arthur in an interview on Ultimate FM early Monday urged all politicians to be thoughtful of their statements and actions as the election period reaches its peak.
"Once he publicly apologized, the IGP has forgiven him but I will want to urge politicians to be careful with what they say and at what time. They should be measured in order not to destabilize the peace of the country. He has been forgiven and he should go and sin no more," he said.
In a TV discussion on political matters last Tuesday, the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong lost his temper and went on to verbally attack the IGP.
However, some days later, he apologised on Oman FM, saying, "I want to apologise to the IGP for the attacks on him…he is a friend from Tema but you know in the heat of things, such things can happen…so he should forgive me…I have called but because I have changed my number, he has not been picking but he should please forgive me."
