No plans to replace Amoo – Kufuor

prez_kuffuor_2007.gifPresident John Agyekum Kufuor on Thursday reaffirmed that Dr Sam
Ghartey Amoo was the substantive National Security Coordinator and he
had no plans of replacing him.

President
Kufuor said the Presidency was satisfied with Dr Amoo’s performance and
had at no point gone into "closed door" meetings to discuss his removal.

The
President said this in a press release signed by Mr Andrew Awuni, Press
Secretary to the President and Presidential Spokesperson.

"We
wish to assure the nation that the security front is as solid and
smooth as ever and more than capable of dealing with any adventurers if
they ever rear their heads."

The statement said some people had
in recent times and for obvious reasons, made the security agencies the
targets of their propaganda by attacking the hierarchy of these
agencies and trying to sow seeds of doubt in the minds of the men and
women of the security agencies.

"Only last month they said
that Major General Samuel Odotei, Chief of Army Staff, was to be
removed and replaced by Major General Ayiku, a man who passed away more
than a year ago. General Odotei is at post to this very day.

"This
time round, they have shifted their attention to the National Security
Co-ordinator, claiming that he too is to be removed. This also is
clearly not true."
