COP George Alex Mensah (Retired), has said that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) will definitely break the 8. He made this revelation while speaking in an interview with Asaase radio on Wednesday.
He added that NPP will retain power after 2024 because of the numerous work done by the sitting president. He also added that NPP will break the 8 because they have men with capabilities.
“I know because we have the men, we have the capabilities, we have a good mind for this country, comparing other political parties, I see the NPP as the best political party that can help this country,” he said
Just recently, Commissioner of Police(COP), Alex George Mensah, declared his intention to contest the Asante Bekwai parliamentary seat in 2024. In his interview on Asaase radio, he will be contesting on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party.
COP Alex Mensah has held a number of posts within the Ghana Police Service, most recently serving as the Director-General, Technical.
COP Alex Mensah has served in various positions within the Ghana Police Service and was the Director-General, Technical until his recent retirement.
He became a household name after he and others were allegedly caught on a leaked tape plotting to remove the current Inspector General of Police (IGP).
He has since appeared before a bipartisan parliamentary ad-hoc committee to defend himself and criticize the IGP for allegedly mismanaging the service and restricting information flow within the service.
As he retires from the Ghana Police Service, congratulatory messages have been pouring in for him. He is scheduled to meet with the parliamentary committee probing the leaked tape on October 2, 2023.
On Tuesday, July 11, an audio recording allegedly involving a police commissioner and a politician discussing a plot to remove IGP George Dampare from office leaked into the media.
As a result, the Minority Caucus in Parliament demanded an investigation into the clandestine plot contained in the audio.
The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, eventually appointed a seven-person bi-partisan committee on July 25, 2023, to investigate the audio in question.
The Committee constitutes three members each from the Majority and Minority sides of Parliament, and a technical person.
