The Managing Editor of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako Jr has advised the Ashanti Regional Police Commander, DCOP Kofi Boakye to avoid politics and focus on his profession.
According to him, he (Kofi Boakye) is a 'fantastic' policeman and he is doing a 'fantastic' job and so it will be better if he does not mar it by engaging in petty politics.
Kweku Baako’s comment comes on the back of a comment by Kofi Boakye that he nearly lost his job as a Police Officer when the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was in power.
DCOP Kofi Boakye has alleged that his work schedule which got him working closely with former President John Rawlings nearly cost him his job because he was perceived to have had alliances with the then opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“NPP came to power and some of us were nearly sacked because there was that presumption that once I have traveled with the Head of State before; because I traveled with Rawlings to Libya, once I was the lead Policeman whenever Rawlings is coming, I am automatically NDC...Immediately NPP came to power, I had to cease talking to him [Rawlings] completely,” he indicated.
But speaking to the issue in a panel discussion on PEAEC FM morning show ‘Kokrokoo’, Kweku Baako said: “I think this was just a slip; next time focus on the professional things and leave the politics to your memoirs”.
