It is not Against the law for Party foot Soldiers to Join National Security – Dominic Nitiwul

The Member of Parliament for the Bimbilla constituency in the Northern Region and the Minister of Defence of Ghana Hon. Dominic Aduna Bingab Nitiwul has noted that, the laws of Ghana do not prohibit party foot Soldiers from joining the various security forces in the country.

It could be recalled that in the past few weeks, a widely circulated video indicated how an alleged National security officer only referred to as Poyo instructed a police officer stationed at a registration center to leave or else he would shoot him.

Speaking on the issue in an interview on Joy fm, Hon. Dominic Nitiwul confirmed that the man in the video is a National Security Officer and also a member of his party, the New Patriotic Party.


When questioned why a member of the NPP has been recruited into the National Security, the Defense minister argued that, even though he does not encourage recruiting of Party foot Soldiers into certain sensitive installations, the laws of Ghana does not prohibit the act.

However, Hon . Dominic Aduna Bingab Nitiwul was quick to add that both the National Democratic Congress and the New Patriotic Party are all guilty of recruiting part supporters into the security services.
