The host of “SI NO PI”, a segment on the “GHANA NIE” morning show on Atinka Television, Bismark Brown has said the security agencies should be applauded for the work done in finding the missing Canadian girls in Kumasi.
Applauding the police officials for their rescue of the Canadians, he said will serve as an encouragement for them to find the missing Takoradi girls.
BB made the statement following information about the arrival of some Canadian specialist who allegedly came to help in finding the girls.
After their rescue, it was rumoured that the rescue of the canadians was as a result of their assets.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah in a press conference debunked the rumour, stating that the rescue of the girls was solely on the intelligence of the National Security.
BB also noted that there was no evidence that the Canadian specialist who were brought helped find the missing girls as all the officers or personnel’s who have been seen on several platforms to have arrested the eight alleged kidnappers were Ghanaian officers.
He observed that the Ghana security agencies were already working tirelessly together with the Uber driver and some community volunteers to find these girls before any information about the arrival of Canadian specialist.
“The police have done a good job by rescuing the Canadians and also arresting the suspects two weeks after they were abducted. Ghanaians should applaud them for their good work done. When they do the wrong things we chastise them and so therefore if they have been able to rescue the Canadians they deserve the credit,” he said.
BB recommended that in cases like these, the security services or the national security minister should be allowed to communicate with Ghanaians instead of some political figures.
His suggestion was due to the press conference which was held in relation to the rescuing of the Canadian girls by the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah.
BB explained that not allowing these political figures to talk about issues like these will eliminate all doubts from people and prevent them from politicising the issues or make people see it as some political parties just trying to take accolades for the work done by security agencies.
He advised that the same urgency used in addressing the issue of the missing Canadians should be applied to that of the Takoradi girls.
Further he also pleaded with the Inspector General of Police to get involved with the Takoradi missing girls just as he did with that of the Canadian missing girls.
BB also urged the IGP to make finding the missing Takoradi girls his personal project before retiring in August this year.
