Comments From COP Mensah Makes Him More Of A Politician Than A Police Officer – Benjamin Kofi Quashie

South African Council of Elders Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Mr. Benjamin Kofi Quashie has averred that COP Alex Mensah is more of a politician than a police officer.

According to him, “I think he should put down his uniform and attend the Parliamentary Committee Sitting in party attire rather than in police uniform”, he indicated.

Mr. Kofi Quashie spoke on a number of issues on the “Am Show” on Joy News, Monday, 11th September, 2023.

Appearing at the Parliamentary Committee, COP Mensah is on record to have admitted that the Police Service is split into NPP and NDC. There are some situations where some police officers have left the Service and contested on some party tickets, which connotes that some of the officers were part of the party long before being granted the opportunity to contest on the party’s ticket.

When Mr. Benjamin Quashie’s attention was drawn to this, he questioned “Were the officers in active service or they had left the service? At the time they were police officers, were they passing comments as COP Mensah is passing lately? It’s neither here nor there”, he dismissed such claims.

Touching on our new oil discovery and how it bodes for the welfare of the Ghanaian, the SA NDC Council of Elders Chair reacted that, he shares in the frustrations of the Ghanaian people, which has emanated from bad governance over the years, which makes the people not to directly feel the benefits of such resources when discovered.

“What has happened to the oil revenues that we generate? I think we should not always push it over and say that we’re tired. I think we continue to remind government that these resources that we have are for the benefit of the Ghanaian people and are supposed to be there for generations yet unborn”, he explained.

“If people are not enthused about more oil discovery, it is as a result of how government has used the resources over years. This NPP government has received more revenue from oil than any other government. They’ve been very reckless and have mismanaged the economy. How do you expect Ghanaians to clap for you when you discover more oil?”, angry Mr. Benjamin Quashie quizzed.

“In other jurisdictions, the citizens get happy when such discoveries are made; people become very happy but, unfortunately in our part and especially in Ghana, we’re not happy with it especially because of the mismanagement by the Nana Akufo-Addo and Bawumia administration”, he alleged.
