Ghana’s High Commissioner to South Africa George Ayisi-Boateng has noted that the infiltration of politicians in the recruitment process of security agencies has been contributing to the increase of robbery cases in the country.
Mr Ayisi-Boateng urged immediate strengthening of systems and societal institutions to fight corruption and security issues.
Speaking on Akoma FM‘s morning show GhanAkoma, HE Ayisi-Boateng explained that the “influx of politicians and traditional leaders in the operations of institutions is a prime cause of delay in Ghana’s development”.
He explained that the infiltration in police recruitment and other governmental agencies have been the bane to fighting corruption and armed robbery cases in the country.
“Until our institutions are strengthened and operated independently devoid of political influence, Ghana’s situation may be worsened.”
The High Commissioner referred to former US President’s admonishment to Ghanaians over strengthening of institutions, urging a total review of the country’s approach to fighting corruption and armed robbery.
