The Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare has stressed that the Police Service will work hard to keep the peace in the country before, during, and after the 2024 General Election.

The IGP made this assurance during a meeting with the Electoral Commission Chairperson Madam Jean Mensa, and the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS) Vice Admiral Seth Amoama.

Speaking at the meeting, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare noted that the Ghana Police Service will do whatever it takes to ensure every election held in the country is peaceful.

“We will keep ensuring that in every election that is conducted, there is peace, security, law and order. We will do whatever it takes for the country to continue to be at peace and we will not compromise on it,” the IGP said at the meeting held on Tuesday, December 5.

At the meeting, EC Chairperson Jean Mensa said one of the major challenges her outfit is facing ahead of the 2024 General Election has to do with security.

She said this is largely because politicians and their supporters are willing to use all means including violence in their bid to capture power.

She applauded the IGP and other security agencies for the various roles they play in ensuring elections held in the country are safe.

On his part, the Chief of Defence Staff, Vice Admiral Seth Amoama indicated that the Ghana Armed Forces will be ready to assist all the security agencies in case help is needed to ensure an incident-free 2024 General Election.
