Pressure on me to contest started in 2010 – Resigned Policeman speaks

Superintendent Peter Lanchene Tuubo has revealed that the pressure on him to contest as a Member of Parliament (MP) for the Wa West Constituency started 2010.

The Former Commonwealth Hall President of the University of Ghana disclosed that even thought he was going to become a youth organizer of a particular political party upon completion but he towed a different lane and became a policeman.

Even with that, there was still pressure for him but he stayed off because politics could interfere with his professional work as a policeman until he finally decided to go into it thereby resigning from his position as Executive Secretary to the Inspector General of Police.

“The people of Wa West since 2010 has been impressing upon me to come and contest and because of the work I do as a police officer, I was really not interested but the pressure mounted and mounted and I think the most beautify thing to do is to respond to the call of the people who took care of you when you were going up”. He revealed in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com.

He justified his decision to quit his job as it was in variance with the professional ethics to engage in partisan politics as a policeman.

Superintendent Peter Lanchene Tuubo is set to contest as National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate in the Upper West Region.

It was established by MyNewsGh.com that the outspoken cop is to contest as a parliamentary candidate for NDC in the Wa West Constituency of the Upper West Region and will have to slug it out with veteran politician and former Minister of Health, Hon Joseph Yiele Chireh.
