Actress Lydia Forson has said too many people in leadership positions in Ghana “know nothing about what being a leader means.”

According to Miss Forson, most Ghanaian leaders do not understand the integrity, respect and honour that comes with stepping down when they have failed.

Her statement comes on the back of renewed calls on the Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Maame Yaa Tiwaa Addo-Danquah to resign following a DNA confirmation that the missing Takoradi girls who she claimed the police knew where they were, have been dead long ago.

The Inspector-General of Police James Oppong Boanuh confirmed to the media on Monday, 16 September 2019 that the DNA results conducted on some human remains discovered at the home of the suspect had come in positive as those of the four missing girls.

Reacting to news of the death of the girls, Ms Forson, in a series of tweets, said: “What happened to the #TakoradiGirls, how the police handled the case, the silence of our government and the treatment of the families should tell you the value of your life in this country.”

What happened to the #TakoradiGirls , how the police handled the case, the silence of our government and the treatment of the families should tell you the value of your life in this country.

According to the award-winning actress: “The Director-General of the CID’s refusal to step down after lying to the media and putting the families through emotional turmoil says a lot about leadership in this country. Most leaders in Ghana will hold on to power even if it means knocking everyone down. #TakoradiGirls”

The ‘Side chick gang’ actress further stated that: “Too many people in leadership positions in Ghana know nothing about what being a leader means. They don’t understand the integrity, respect and honour that comes with stepping down when they’ve failed. #TiwaaMustGo”

Ms Forson further wondered what can be done for the Police Service to make them more efficient in the discharge of their duties.

“Beyond our outrage, I need to understand what Ghana Police Service needs to help it become more effective. I don’t want to believe that everyone there is happy with the fact that a majority of Ghanaians have no faith in them. Really, what can we do?” She quizzed.

Beyond our outrage I need to understand what @GhPoliceService needs to help it become more effective.

I don’t want to believe that everyone there is happy with the fact that a majority of Ghanaians have no faith in them.

Really, what can we do??
