Police to probe use of its cars by politicians for campaign

The Ghana Police Service has assured the general public that investigations will be conducted into the circumstances that led to the alleged use of its vehicles by politicians for campaign activities ahead of this year’s elections.

A statement issued and signed by Sheilla Kessie Abayie-Buckmam (Mrs) Superintendent of Police, Director of Public Affairs, noted that such acts are not permissible  hence the decision to probe the matter.

The statement said :“The attention of the Police administration has been drawn to videos and pictures showing people with political party identity apparently rallying in Police vehicles.

“The administration does not sanction acts of this nature.

“The Inspector General of Police Mr James Oppong-Boamah has therefore directed the Director General Police Professional Standards Bureau (PPSB) to investigate and bring up a report on the matter, for officers who are found culpable to be sanctioned accordingly.”
