A communication team member of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mujeeb Rahman, has taken a swipe at critics of President Akufo-Addo over claims that the country is unstable.
He rubbished the claims and stated the security of Ghana is intact, government is doing its best and as a country, we are better. We will always ask for more but we should not politicize the issue and claim that we are in state of insecurity. We are better,’’ he added.
Speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he said, ‘’Ghana’s security is intact under his Excellency President Nana Akufo-Addo.
The numerical strength of the police service he said was weak but has been improved after the current administration took over office.
‘’That goes to affirm the strength of the police in terms of numbers,’’ he added.
The NPP government he touted has provided enough logistics for the police and it has boosted their moral to do better than they did under the previous NDC government.
He posited that, ‘’ as for an isolated case, it will always occur but that should not be a yardstick to say the state is in an unstable situation.
He jabbed the opposition NDC for exaggerating the Ayawaso West Wuogon violence and shooting incident.
He commended the president for constituting the commission of enquiry to probe the matter adding, ‘’it shows that Ghanaians have a father who is committed to ensure sanity in the country. Ghanaians know they are in safe hands. Ghanaians are aware they are better under Nana Addo than former President John Dramani Mahama.
He was reacting to comments made by a communicator of the NDC; Abdul Razak, who was also on the show that, Ghanaians are currently living in fear.
He quizzed the analysis done by the NDC communicator to arrive at his position.
He quizzed: ‘’Are you a security expert to justify that our security situation is bad? What parameters did you use to arrive at this position?”
