GH₵10k Monthly & 40,000 Police Boots: Bugri Naabu Has No Contract With The Police – IGP

Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare, has refuted claims that the Ghana Police Service has commercial dealings with former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Northern Regional Chairman, Chief Bugri Naabu.

Superintendent George Asare, who appeared before the committee tasked by parliament to probe the plot to oust the IGP, alleged that the IGP had dealings with Chief Bugri Naabu in relation to some 40,000 police boots contract.

According to him, Chief Naabu was promised rewards, which motivated him to get the recordings to be given to Dr. Dampare.

“I have Alhaji Bugri Naabu on tape, everything he came to say here, on video in his office. His relationship with IGP and contracts, 40,000 boots contract,” he alleged.

In a video recording published by The Ghana Report, Chief Naabu admitted that “IGP gave me more than GH₵10,000”.

He added that the IGP was to give him a contract to provide boots for the police service but it was later given to a different company.

“IG told me that we should bring a company. I submitted the company [but] they didn’t take the company. He was to give the contract of 40,000 boots…up till now, nothing has come, but before I could hear, one gentleman had taken the contract.

“The person has been paid [but] he didn’t honour the payment for our share so that we could also give others,” Chief Naabu said in the recorded video.

However, Dr Dampare emphatically told the committee, “It is one of the falsehoods that have been put in the public domain”.
