COP Alex Mensah confirms he’ll be running for MP

Commissioner of Police George Alex Mensah says he is set to contest the Asante Bekwai parliamentary seat in the Ashanti Region.

This announcement comes as he officially retires from the Ghana Police Service after 31 years of service.

COP Alex Mensah is currently at the center of that leaked tape plotting the removal of Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Dr George Akuffo Dampare and has appeared before the Parliamentary Committee investigating the matter.

COP George Alex Mensah has told Accra-based Angel FM his decision has been made and will contest to enter parliament to represent the Bekwai Constituency.

“I have been thinking about it. I will run, I will run,” he said.

While he does not say on which party’s ticket, the COP had during the ad-hoc committee’s hearing revealed that he is an NPP sympathizer.

In a series of questions posed by the Member of Parliament for Asunafo South, Eric Opoku, concerning specific statements the Commissioner made in the leaked audio tape suggesting his affiliation to the NPP, the COP stated that his entire family has been faithful to the United Party (UP) tradition from which the NPP emerged.

“Mr. Chairman, my family has been with the UP tradition ever since I was born, and we’ve remained there till now,” he said.
