Gov’t must be serious with investment in security – Kofi Adams

A member of Defence and Interior Committee of Parliament, Mr Kofi Adams, has asked the government to be serious with investment in the nation’s security.

He said the government must procure the right tools and gadgets for the security agencies to enable them deliver their functions effectively.

Speaking in an interview with TV3, the Member of Parliament for Buem said security must be valued at all times, not only when there is trouble.

“We on the Defence and Interior committee will do everything to support all our security agencies to be able to function and function effectively. As I keep saying, we should not wait to see the value of security in insecurity.

 “Mostly, people don’t see the value of security until insecurity occurs. Sometimes we don’t see why we should even invest in security in our homes, why we should invest in simple dogs until something goes wrong then we now. We think that investment in security is a waste, it is never a waste.

“Let us preempt some of the things, let us invest in security. Government must be serious about investment in security. When parliament gives the mandate for that investment let us not go and bring toy equipment to them.

“Let us buy what is durable, let us buy what can properly be used to protect and defend the people.”
