One's thoughts and prayers are with those who suffered in the dreadful tragedy that occurred at Nkoranza, in the Bono East Region on Tuesday 17th May, 2022 - both civilians and police. However, the point needs to be made that Ghanaians, a wise and aspiratiinal African people, are a civilised people, and that nothing can justify mobs attacking police stations in our country. Full stop.
The question we must ponder over is: When, koraaa, will our hard-of-hearing ruling-elites, get it, that we need to merge the Ghana Police Service, the Ghana Prison Service, the Ghana Immigration Service, the Ghana National Fire Service and the CEPS of GRA, into a new Homeland Force, that the becomes the fourth armed service, of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF), if we are to ensure that those tasked to ensure internal security in our nation, are properly resourced - particularly at a time when terrorism is on the ascendancy in West Africa, and such horrible examples of mob violence, in which police stations are attacked by lawless elements, is increasing in frequency? Haaba.
The time has now come for the deployment of AI citywide surveillance technology to protect government installations such as police stations, and the barracks of all our security agencies, as well as all public spaces where large numbers congregate. We must not allow a break down in law and order under any circumstances, anywhere in the territorial landmass of the Republic of Ghana, oooo. Yoooooo. Enough is enough. Nothing can justify mobs attacking police stations in our country. It is simply intolerable.
