Interior Minister Ambrose Dery says he is prepared to be fired from his position if he fails to deal with the widespread lawlessness caused by pro-NPP vigilante groups in the country.
Vigilante groups like Kandahar Boys, Delta Force, Invisible forces and others have wreaked havoc and caused a state of insecurity in parts of the country.
The blatant disregard for the rule of law has led stakeholders including former President John Mahama to doubt the Akufo-Addo led administration’s commitment in ending the menace.
But Mr Dery told Morning Show Francis Abban that government is treating the surge in violence with the utmost seriousness it deserves, declaring that he is ready to put his job on the line if a solution is not found.
”I am going to do all I can to deal with the issue, I am committed to ensuring that I do not fail the President and the country. I’m prepared to pay the price if I don’t deliver, anybody can call for my head if I fail to deliver”.
Meanwhile, a former Interior Minister, Prosper Bani has said Mr Dery must do well to deal with the issue with the urgency that it requires.
“We need to engage more aspect of government apparatus, stakeholders, media, and chiefs. We need to ensure our security services are well equipped. The Police service is one of the best and given space, will deliver to the fullest”.
