The Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, does not agree with public concerns over the growing state of insecurity in Ghana.
According to him, the reported number of robberies and crimes do not necessarily mean the country is in a state of insecurity.
This was the reaction of the Interior Minister to several reports of robbery attacks with the recent being the killing of a police officer escorting a bullion van in Accra and other criminal activities.
While the Minority in Parliament has urged President Akufo-Addo to demonstrate leadership by ensuring that the country becomes safe and sound for all and sundry, the Interior Minister does not believe the country is in a state of insecurity.
“What we should know is that the criminals continue to change the modules and we have to be changing with them and the police is doing all it can. We have not lost control. I always want to emphasise that, we need to go to neighbouring countries to see what is happening there, but we are not in the same league with them.”
“We want to do better than we are doing now, but believe me, Ghana is safe; that is why all the other countries are running to Ghana,” this was an answer from Ambrose Dery to questions from the Minority on insecurity in the country.
