Our mandate does not extend to Parliament – Police

The Ghana Police Administration says it has taken steps to assist the Clerk of Parliament to avert the reoccurrence of the free-for-all fight witnessed in the House on Monday.

According to the Police, the move has become necessary as a result of various concerns raised on why they (Police) could not intervene.

“Following the recent happenings in the House of Parliament, during the 2022 budget debate, some concerned Ghanaians have questioned why the Police did not go into the Chamber to maintain law and order. And take action against Members of Parliament who were seen engaged in what looked to many like violent disturbance and scuffles in the Chamber of Parliament.

“We have, however, initiated steps to engage the Clerk, Marshal and leadership of Parliament to fashion out a more proactive way of supporting Parliament in this regard within the confines of laws of the country,” the Police assured in a press release signed by Director General, Public Affairs, ACP Kwesi Ofori.
