IGP may be up to some mischief - Kwamena Duncan

Central Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kwamena Duncan has fired at the Inspector General of Police (IGP), John Kudalor over the alleged secret deal between him and the Electoral Commission to insert new names into the special voters’ list.

Speaking on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo', Kwamena Duncan held strongly that the IGP may be up to some mischief.

According to him, the IGP has, since his appointment, showed his biases particularly towards the opposition NPP.

“He has always turned a blind eye to matters where violence has been perpetrated against people of the NPP. It could be recalled that during our registration at the Volta Region, the Volta Regional Chairman was beaten to pulp and (Kwami), we had pictorial evidence of a Policeman who said he’s an Inspector or Chief Inspector carrying ballot boxes in a car. In fact, we put all the pictures out and the Regional Executive Committee [Kwami] called on the IGP to institute an investigation. Up till today, nothing has happened.”

He, therefore, expressed mistrust in the IGP, wondering why he would ask the EC to insert new names in a list.

“What basis does the IGP have to stand on that (Kwami), they should insert new names into the special voters’ list when indeed we have gone past that post? 28th October, that was when that was done and sealed. Where is this new list coming from? IGP, this new list; where are you bringing it from and you want that list to be inserted in there? For what?” he questioned.

To him, the IGP is working in his own interest and apparently for some political gains.

“Are we sure of the names that the IGP is seeking for the Regional Commanders, Divisional and District Commanders to get them inserted into the special voters’ list? Do we know these names? Do we know them as political parties? [Kwame] Do we know them? This is what proves that the IGP may have his own agenda," he stressed.
