- CID boss, Maame Tiwaa Addo Danquah, has expressed interest in becoming Ghana's next IGP
- If successful, she would become the country's first female IGP
- The incumbent IGP,. David Asante Appeatu, is set to retire in August 2019
The Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service (GPS), Maame Tiwaa Addo Danquah, has stated that she is ready to become Ghana’s first female Inspector General of Police (IGP).
According to her, she would accept the position if President Nana Akufo-Addo names her as Ghana’s next IGP.
Maame Tiwaa explained that she believes she is qualified for the job and she enjoys the support of members of the GPS, and this would help achieve results.
Per a report by Pulse.com.gh, she is one of the favourites to take up the mantle as the current IGP, David Asante Appeatu, retires in August 2019.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that there are 10 police officers, each of whom could take charge as IGP, when Asante Appeatu retires.
Maame Tiwaa, as head of the CID, has however been in the news in recent times for all the controversial reasons.
The case of the three missing Takoradi girls has been a major cause of concern for Ghanaians, and her strategy in handling the matter, has generated debates for some time now.
The prime suspect in the case, Samuel Udoetuk Wills, was taken to court and jailed for 18 months for breaking out of prison.
The minority leader in Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, has meanwhile hinted of plans of dragging the IGP to Parliament, to provide details on the matter.
