The Former Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has expressed worry over the manner in which police personnel assigned to maintain law and order at football matches jostle to be in the view of the camera.
According to Nana Akomea, the police are to exhibit professional conduct devoid of emotions, talk less of wanting to be captured by the camera.
“...If people watching at home see this, they would think there is some trouble at the stadium. I think they don’t even have to show emotions. They have to be professional; they don’t even have to show emotions on the field. They don’t have to jubilate when a goal is scored, they have to be neutral and provide security.
“…you could see them scrambling to come into the camera during the interview and when you watch, you would think there is a problem there. This is the second time I have noticed them do that….it doesn’t send a professional impression when you have security men trying hard to be caught on camera during an interview,” he lamented.
“I don’t’ see it anywhere else and they have to watch it,” he stressed.
Nana Akomea made this observation after the first leg of the World cup qualifier in Kumasi, in which the Black Stars of Ghana trounced the Pharaohs of Egypt by 6 goals to 1.
Speaking on Metro TV’s ‘Good Morning Ghana’ programme, the former Head of the NPP communication machinery advised the Ghana Police Service to check and correct, what appears to be a growing trend as far as the safety of our stadia is concerned.
