Ola Michael has said Ghanaians need to pull a break on the heaving of praise on the new Inspector General of Police IGP George Akufo Dampare.
According to him, the IGP is just carrying out his mandate and there’s nothing extraordinary about what he has been doing since he assumed which should warrant all the praise.
Speaking on Onua FM, Ola Michael said IGP Damapre would also have his praise if he starts arresting politicians, and ensuring that the killings that occurred during the 2020 Elections are properly investigated.
“We need to stop praising him. Dampare, it’s getting sickening by the day. Is he doing anything about the deaths that occurred during the election? There were ministers and MPs brandishing guns, not to mention shooting them.”
“What has he done to address this? I’m still waiting for him to reject his salary, at which point I’ll say, “Yeah, there’s a new guy.” Until then, it’s all a bit of a shambles. “Now that we’re in Ghana, people will start crucifying him,” he said in Twi
Ola Michael also added that the arrest of celebrities like Shatta Wale and Medikal would rather do their careers more good than harm. Hence, the IGP needs to focus on more important issues.
“When you believe you are punishing a celebrity, you are actually increasing their fan base and popularity. The IGP is doing well, but you should refrain from lavishing praise on him. He’s just doing his job. Do you get the same compliments on your work, AJ? He’s doing what he’s been paid and assigned to do,” He stated.
