The Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery, has insisted that Ghana is peaceful compare to other countries that are facing the worst slamming those saying otherwise.

“I always want to emphasise that, we need to go to neighbouring countries to see what is happening there, but we are not in the same league with them.” he said.

Ambrose Dery vehemently rejected the assertion that the government has lost the fight against crime.

He, however, said the government will do more to ensure the safety of citizens.

“What we should know is that the criminals continue to change the modules and we have to be changing with them and the police is doing all it can. We have not lost control. I always want to emphasise that, we need to go to neighbouring countries to see what is happening there, but we are not in the same league with them.”

“We want to do better than we are doing now, but believe me, Ghana is safe; that is why all the other countries are running to Ghana.”

The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, also said there was a breakdown in law and order in the country.

Also there are reports of robbery attacks with the recent being the killing of a police officer escorting a bullion van in Accra and other criminal activities, have put fear in some citizens, who have called on the government and the security agencies to up their game to arrest the situation.

But the Interior Minister disagrees that the country has lost the fight against crime, insisting that government is on top of issues.
