Prof Gyampo reacts to viral photo of a soldier carrying bag of Akufo-Addo’s lawyer

Political Lecturer at the University of Ghana, Professor Ransford Gyampo has condemned a viral photo of a Military officer carrying the bag of a private legal practitioner.

According to Prof. Gyampo in a Facebook post, it is not the responsibility of a soldier to carry the bag of any private legal practitioner in court.

The well known Political Science lecturer added that the action of the military man demoralizes the Police and cause their public disrespect.

To him, Defending the territorial integrity of any country does not include body-guarding civilian appointees.

He wrote;

It is not the duty of any soldier to be carrying the bag of any private legal practitioner to court. Defending the territorial integrity of any country does not include body-guarding civilian appointees.

These gestures demoralize the Police and cause their public disrespect. If we think the Police is weak and can no longer offer such services as providing security for appointees and private people, the way to go is to strengthen them and check how we recruit people there.

We have no business “civilianizing” our soldiers. It would come back to haunt us.
