IGP’s Letter To British High Commissioner Needless – Suhuyini
Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini has said the letter provided by the Inspector General of Police to the British High commissioner was of no need.
Speaking on an Accra-based television station, he said the IGP could have sent his concerns to the High commissioner through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration. “In this matter, he has lost focus. I don’t want to generalize it on this matter I think he has lost focus. I think he went overboard and I think he must eat the humble pie”.
“The High Commissioner even if she had to be reprimanded, had to be done through the Foreign Affairs ministry. I believe in this case, she doesn’t even deserve any reprimand because all she was seeking was information and that information could have been given her without turning this into a battle”.
This comes as IGP react to a tweet by the British High Commissioner Harriet Thompson on Tuesday, May 17, ” Oliver Barker Vormawor, convener of the #FixTheCountry movement, arrested again, I understand for a motoring offense on his way to court. I will be interested to see where this goes…”
In observing the tweet, the police administration on Tuesday issued a strongly worded response to what they described as an uninformed, biased comment by the British High Commissioner to Ghana on the arrest of the Barker Vormawar.
