Host of ‘Maakye’ on Accra-based Hot 93.9FM,Boamah Darko has indicated candidly that Ghana is not safe as pronounced by Minister of National Security, Mr. Albert Kan-Dapaah.
Mr. Kan Dapaah, who was speaking at a ceremony to climax operation Koudanlgou III at Bawku, debunked media reports over a supposed arrest of some 170 terrorists in the just ended joint international security operation dubbed: “Koudanlgou III”.
According to him, rather a total of 427 people were arrested in the cross border joint operation.Out of the number of people arrested, he said, 333 were Ghanaians and 94 were foreign nationals, including Burkinabes, Nigerians and Togolese, most of whom have been deported to their countries.
The Minister added that armed robbery, kidnapping and other crimes have reduced drastically due to the pro-activeness of the national security operatives.He indicated that,Ghana is safe and assured that people should carry out their usual business activities without fear.
Reacting to Mr.Kan Dapaah's pronouncement on his ‘Maakye’ show, Boamah Darko angrily indicated that Ghana is not safe due to increasing road accidents.
"The number of motorcycles that were involved in road traffic accidents witnessed 11.82 percent jump from 956 in the first quarter of 2018 to 1069 during the same year…so you see how it has increased.Motor cycle killed 169 people and injured 718 commuters in the first quarter of 2019… these are what we are talking about…threat of lives…they are national security threats…”.Boamah fumed.
He angrily added, "our bad roads–a total of 2,387 private vehicles were involved in accidents in the first quarter of this year–an increase of 7.81percent--compared to the involvements of 2,214 private vehicles in the first quarter of the year 2019. So road accidents keep increasing. So Ghana is not safe on our roads”.
