After an in camera meeting of some witnesses with the committee Wednesday, September 13, 2023, COP Mensah told the media that “the truth will come out.” This was after he was asked to give his expectations and comment on how proceedings have gone so far.
COP Alex Mensah, during his meeting with the committee noted that the IGP is the worst manager in the history of the Police Service, having withheld promotions of junior officers, striking several deals with the former Northern region chair of the NPP, Daniel Bugri Naabu, in whose office the said audio was recorded, among other allegations.
“I can tell you that for the 31 years that I have been in the Police Service, this IGP is the worst IGP,” COP Mensah told the committee on Friday, September 1, 2023.
