National security expert, Adib Saani has affirmed that political colorization should be brushed aside if Ghana is to strengthen its national security reputation and retain a stable environment for socio-economic advancement.
Speaking to host, Maxwell Ohene-Addo on Plan B FM’s morning show; Nkɔsoɔ Nsɛm, the Executive Director of the Jatikay Center for Human Security and Peace Building, highlighted loopholes in Ghana’s security architecture which ultimately contest against the preservation of an all-round stable environment for peace and nation building.
He questioned the shifting opinions of politicians in the national security dialogue anytime a new political party was in power and lamented the inconsistency in the application of due processes when certain individuals or groups crossed the line.
“We need to clean our lenses and position our security apparatus beyond the reach of people who do not have the national interest at heart. Both the current government and the opposition party have a call of duty to ensure that Ghana remains a peaceful stable nation no matter who is on power”, he asserted.The security analyst urged stakeholders in the security sector to be proactive and emotionally intelligent in the performance of their roles especially in the run-in to the 2020 polls while counseling citizens to not allow themselves to be distracted by toxic elements whose sole joy is to see the nation in flames.
