The Alliance for Accountable Governance (AFAG) has followed closely the security situation and the respect for institution of state with alarm. AFAG would want to draw the attention of government and stake holders, most importantly donor partners to consider ways of restoring confidence and hope in the security forces among the people of Ghana considering the major elections in 2012.

Under President Mills, it seems the BNI and National security apparatus is subject to their own laws and not the laws of the state.

The on-going stand-off between the police and the BNI at the Osu Circuit Court undermines the authority of the court and attempts to intimidate the judiciary. The national security has now become the tool of the NDC government instead of concentrating on their core duties as national institution.

Most alarming is the silence of the Minister for The Interior on this particular matter and many others in the past. Their inaction at the violence at the Akwatia by-elections, searching for a dog at one Mr Alfred Ogbamey’s house, and seeking to arrest party activists in the Ashanti Region.

It is evident that, the heads of the Bureau of National Investigation, National Security, the Attorney General, the National Security Advisor to the President and the Minister for The Interior are unable to perform their duties of protecting the citizenry.

AFAG therefore calls for his immediate dismissal by the president and necessary action taken to restore the broken down security situation in the country.
