The immediate past Inspector General of Police, (IGP) John Kudalor has asked Ghanaians to forgive him if in the discharge of his duties as the number one policeman, he unknowingly wronged anyone.
Mr Kudalor came under heavy criticism when he hinted that the Police Service was considering the shutting down of social media during the December 7 general elections.
According to him, every action he took was guided by the fact that he wanted to ensure that the Ghana Police Service was a first class security service.

“In my quest to get the best out of my officers and men I might have stepped on toes and offended anyone…I’ve put it in quotation marks because I don’t think I can offended anybody, these acts were unintentional, non-diabolical, not deliberate or from malice or ill-will. I took such actions in my fervent hope to get a world class police service. To the good people of this country I want to thank you as to how we all carried ourselves as patriots before, during and after the 2016 elections in particular and during my tenure of office in general.”
Mr Kudalor was also confident that the new IGP, COP Asante Apeatu will deliver as he’s known him to be a distinguished and competent police officer.
“There were times and moments that one had to stomach and contain bitterness, ridicule, pain, blatant lies and of course periods of joy and satisfaction, success and praises. I’m not saying this to frighten my successor but as the saying goes…to be forewarned is to be forearmed and I know he’ll deliver though it’s not all that rosy…but know he’ll deliver, he’s somebody that I’ve known very well for so many years.”
