Ghanaians must be inquisitive

A security expert George Dosoo Doyen has urged Ghanaians to be “inquisitive”, saying it is one of the precautionary measures for personal security.

Doyen, who is the coordinator for Doyen’s Leverage, says it is about time the Ghanaians adopted protectiveness in their daily outings.

At a security and safety awareness training under its flagship “Security Awareness Program”(SAP) at the office of the National Peace Council, Doyen painted a gloomy picture of the growing insecurity in the country, which he says can be reduced if people show concern about some daily happenings in their communities.

“The new generation of Ghanaians must be inquisitive, always be eager to find out more,” he said.

“A typical Ghanaian will go to a place, see a bag under a chair and just sit down without finding out what is in under the chair but it doesn’t work in this modern world.

“Let go deep and find out more, that is the only way we can conquer some of these problems to ensure personal security.”

He also urged Ghanaians to share more information among themselves to enable early intervention and preventative work, for safeguarding and promoting the welfare and for wider public protection.

In an extensive discussion with participants on the security awareness series, which was held on the 5th of July, Doyen touched on the dangers involved in Ghanaians’ youngsters moving to Asian countries for jobs, urging parents not to allow their wards to be taken into slavery due to poverty.

He enumerated ways and strategies by which Ghanaians can be proactive in determining danger and neutralizing it.
He also urged Government to do more in engaging with the country’s youth to ensure people do not run out of the country for non-existent greener pastures.

SAP is a free practical safety and security educational program designed for citizens to develop expertise to identify threats, adhere to safety precautions and make them less vulnerable to criminal activities and operations.

The meeting with the peace council was one of a series being embarked on by Doyen Leverage with an aim to create a security awareness campaign across the country.

Doyen’s Leverage (DL), is a law enforcement and intelligence training Institute. It launched the SAP program on the 2nd of February 2019.

It has so far held the training at places such as Deeper Life Church – Dansoman, New Covenant Apostolic Church International – Mamprobi and Apostolic Church Ghana – Charles lane, and Grace Winners Chapel Ministry – Chorkor.
