The renowned Ghanaian Professor has finally come out to send another bold message to the Ghana police service over the recent rise in insecurity in the country.
Speaking at a recent conference, the renowned Professor, Tsikata revealed that, the military who are supposed to protect the country’ s borders are now performing policing duties hence, causing more harm than good.
With respect to this, Professor Tsiksta urged the Ghana police service led by Dr. Dampare to put all hands- on deck and resolve all insecurity issues without the intervention of the military across the various regions in the country.
” It is critical to address the fundamental causes of conflicts and reduce state violence. Those who live in conflict epidemic parts of Ghana and in communities where illegal economic activities occur often contend with several challenges.
One of the failures to resolve conflicts tirelessly and comprehensively is often linked with the flawed analysis of the causes of conflict partisanship and other interests and the failure to harness community conflict resolution strategies, also the resort to violence to police conflicts. In the cases we discussed, the military, an institution trained to protect our borders is now policing our community conflicts.
This has been justified by the lack of capacity of the police force. It is arguable that capacitating the police to deliver on their mandate will promote proportionality in the use of force and less costly” , Professor Tsikata emphatically stated.
