Analyst Calls For Effective Monitoring And Evaluation Of Security Agencies

A Security Analyst, Mr Adam Bonaa, has observed that the mode of recruiting people into the Security Agencies (especially the Police Service) allows for miscreants to enter this sensitive sector of the country’s development.
He said well qualified and competent people miss the boat, because they lack the means to pay their way through and do not know any ‘big man’ at the top.
“The Protocol list, whom you know and big time bribery involved in the recruitment process, has the tendency to put square pegs in round holes, in our security apparatuses,” Mr Bonaa explained to Suncity Radio’s Nana KAS, on the analyst’s re-action to the arrest of 3 Police officers of the Weija District Command of the Ghana Police Service, alleged to have hired out their AK 47 rifles to armed robbers.
Mr Bonaa, who is also the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Security Ware House Ltd, in Accra, used the medium to call for the review of the recruitment process, and an effective mechanism to monitor and evaluate the performance of our Security Agencies.
He also called for the de-politicisation of the tenure of office of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and disagreed with Political Office holders like Regional Ministers and District Chief Executives chairing Regional and District Security Councils respectively, stressing that these constitutional provisions, hinder effective checks and balances to bring the needed sanity into our security systems.

The Security Analyst expressed fears that “People we have employed to protect us, were now engaged in hiring weapons to unscrupulous people to steal and kill—the situation needs urgent and sustained solution to sanitise and stabilise the system,” he stated.
