Ghana Police Service
The Ghana Police Service has rejected assertions that a directive to suspend checking of licenses and vehicular documents is politically motivated.
The IGP recently ordered that personnel of the service should, with immediate effect, cease the inspection of drivers’ licenses and vehicle documents.
The Ghana Committed Drivers Association (GCDA) said the decision was “a lame and desperate attempt by the Mahama-led government to bribe commercial drivers to vote for the NDC following years of implementing punishing policies against us”.
However, speaking to OTECNEWS after a news conference at the National Headquarters of the Police Service, the PRO for Ghana Police Service DSP Cephas Arthur said the decision has nothing to do with politics.
“How will this increase the chances of government? It is too unfortunate to just put political spin on this; that we, (police) excuse me to say, cannot reason. We have reasonable people, we have lawyers, we have engineers. …It is not political,” he stated.
