Retired senior police officer COP (rtd), Alex Mensah, has opined that the leaked tape scandal that exposed a plot to oust the IGP, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, has served as a blessing in disguise for him.
According to him, he was initially shocked when the tapes were made public.
However, from what has transpired so far, the issue has served as a blessing in disguise for him.
He told Joy News in an interview that the leaked tape has brought him more opportunities that he didn’t envisage.
“You see, God has His own way of blessing people. Had it not been for this tape, maybe we wouldn’t have been here. My name and my picture wouldn’t have been where it is circulating now. Now, if you go to my constituency, everybody knows me. Everybody is looking for me.”
“My friends who have not heard from me for years are calling me from the U.S., U.K., and Germany everywhere. God has His own way of bringing up somebody. Sometimes you will not understand, but at the end of the day, you will understand and say, I thought this was a problem, but that was the way the Lord is using to bring you up.”
Meanwhile, he has stated that he has learned valuable lessons from the incident.
According to him, he was determined to move forward with a renewed sense of purpose and responsibility.
“It has in so many ways. At least now, it has made the public aware that something is not going on well in the Ghana Police Service.”
