Former Commissioner of Police (COP), George Alex Mensah, has expressed his content with regards to how the Akufo-Addo-led government is running the country’s economy.
In an interview with Accra-based Asaase Radio on Wednesday, September 20, the retired police officer stated he is happy as those in charge of the country have the interest of the citizens at heart.
When asked if he was happy about how the current administration has run the country, he said, “Yes, I am. I am very happy”.
“I am happy because I know those in charge now want the best for this country,” he added.
Also, when quizzed if it is possible for the NPP to break the 8, he said “Everything is possible. We will break the 8. We must break the 8 to push Ghana forward”.
He therefore urged the people of Ghana to consider retaining the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming 2024 general election.
The retired officer believes that the Akufo-Addo administration has delivered commendable performance, making a case for the NPP’s continuation in power.
“I see the NPP as the best party that can help the country. The whole world knows what is happening. And we know what this government is doing to make sure that Ghana will be able to overcome all these problems. At least we still have free SHS, don’t we?,” Mr Mensah asked.
Alex Mensah has already disclosed his intention to contest the Asante Bekwai parliamentary seat in the Ashanti Region.
“I have been thinking about it. I will run, I will run,” he said.
Mr. Mensah, who is currently embroiled in a controversial leaked audio recording outlining a plot to remove Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, recently appeared before a Parliamentary Committee investigating the matter.
The Accra-based civil society group, Democracy Hub, are currently protesting to call on “the President and members of the Economic Management Team to #FixTheCountry in light of the level of economic mismanagement.”
