Preach “Di Wo Fie Asem’ When It’s Time To Receive Assistance Packages From The British Gov’t – Ablakwa To IGP
North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has criticized the IGP’s decision to attack the British High Commissioner over statements she made on the arrest of Oliver Barker-Vormawor, the Convener of the #FixTheCountry Movement.
According to the MP, the IGP should have informed Ghana’s Foreign Minister of his concerns over High Commissioner Harriet Thompson’s views so that the problem could be handled delicately rather than culminating in a letter attacking her.
The MP (Member of Parliament) went on to say that the IGP’s actions are likely to have an impact on Ghana’s relationship with the United Kingdom in a Facebook post (UK).
“Inspector-General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare should have raised his concerns about the British High Commissioner’s tweet on Oliver Barker-Vormawor’s latest arrest with Ghana’s Foreign Minister for it to be addressed through the time-tested diplomatic channels. The IGP’s rather ill-advised attack on the British High Commissioner, H.E. Harriet Thompson for being meddlesome in Ghana’s internal affairs appears rather far-fetched, particularly considering the significant fact that the activist of interest is a student in the UK and that matters of human rights are universal and cardinal,” portions of the post by the MP read.
“It is quite ironic though, that the IGP does not preach the “di wo fie asem’ doctrine when it is time to receive the numerous donor assistance packages from the British Government,” he added.
