Alleged Plot Against IGP: Bugri Naabu’s Comments Justify Our Call For Probe – Minority Maintains Stand

Outside the chamber, Minority in Parliament says comments made by the former Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bugri Naabu, justify the group’s call for an investigation into the leaked tape regarding the Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare.

In an interview, Bugri Naabu is said to have confirmed that his aide and receptionist had been picked up by the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB) for questioning regarding the secret audio, which revealed plans by the government to kick out the IGP from office in a bid to rig the 2024 polls.

The alleged leaked tape had emerged, uncovering a plot involving a high-ranking police officer and a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), aimed at removing the IGP. 

Per the alleged leaked tape, Dr. Dampare could restrict efforts that would influence the outcome of the 2024 elections. 

They raised concerns about his leadership style and rumored association with the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

As a result, they concluded that achieving the NPP’s ‘Breaking the 8’ agenda, would be impossible with Dampare as the head of the police.

The minority caucus in parliament had also called for an introspection into the alleged leaked tape uncovering the plot when their deputy leader Emmanuel Buah raised the matter on the floor of the house.

Rt. Hon. Speaker Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin hence directed a special seven-member committee to probe the alleged leaked audio containing a discussion on removing the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, from office.

Fast forward to his address to the media, the Ellembelle legislator emphasized that the contents of the audio have the potential to disrupt the democracy and peace of the country, and must not be allowed to slide away without thorough investigations.
