The Founder and 2020 Presidential Candidate for All People’s Congress (APC), Hassan Ayariga has reacted to the recent issues of insecurity across the nation in a press conference.
According to him, National Security and other security agencies responsible for the safety of the ordinary citizens of the country, have evolved into criminal gangs.
Dr. Ayariga noted that though the nation now have a full Ministry responsible for National Security, they are not living up to the expectations of Ghanaians.
He noted that, the situation is at its worst stage as armed robbers now attack at public places in broad daylight, mobile money operators are being killed on daily basis, traders and businessmen losing huge sums of money, to the extent that personnel of the various security agencies themselves are being killed like never before.
He lamented that despite the increasing nature of insecurity in the country, not even a single soul in government has taken responsibility for the fear and panic Ghanaians are in now.
According to him, even some officials of the National Security have turned themselves into criminal gangs and are attacking citizens in an effort to loot and plunder them of their valuables.
He further revealed that some officials of the various security agencies are using force to encroach on people’s lands using state powers.
He believes that the integrity of the various security agencies is currently at its lowest state since the Revolution of 1979.
