Leaked tape probe: You aren’t smarter than Ghanaians, we can see your partiality – Prof Gyampo to Atta Akyea

Political scientist at the University of Ghana, Professor Ransford Gyampo, has urged the chairman of the ad hoc committee responsible for investigating a leaked tape that purportedly contains plans to remove the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Samuel Atta Akyea, to consider recusing himself from the proceedings.

Professor Gyampo asserts that the chairman’s conduct during the IGP’s hearing suggests a clear “personal bias against the IGP.”

He contends that the chairman’s actions have indicated a preference for the disgruntled police officers whose voices were identified in the leaked tape. Consequently, he recommends that the chairman step aside from the committee.

“You aren’t smarter than Ghanaians. We can glean your partiality. Your body language, line of questioning and recurring remarks consistently hint at personal biases against the IGP.

“You don’t look like a credible chairman of any important committee. Rather, you look more like a defence counsel for the bitter police officers whose quest to be made IGPs so they can subvert the will of the people has been exposed,” he said.

Professor Gyampo emphasized that if the chairman truly has no hidden agenda for being a part of the panel, he should consider voluntarily stepping aside to allow someone else to assume his role.

“It is not by force to chair this committee, especially when your work output is more of a disservice. If you don’t have any personal interest in this matter, then recuse yourself or get replaced by the Speaker, as your role is more of a nuisance, and annoying, particularly when you think we are unable to read in between the lines. Just recuse yourself, it is not by force!” he said.
